Take home a pet jellyfish this holiday!

Spongebob Squarepants was the coolest cartoon in town because he just didn’t have a pet dog or cat he had a pet jellyfish (apart from Gary the sea snail). The idea was so absurd and eccentric that one wacky inventor thought it deserves to be conjured in real life.

Florida company Jellyfish Art began selling jellyfish aquariums since 2011 but this year it gears up a notch with a successful kickstarter of 3rd-generation, LED, tank. With 330 USD you will receive a tank that you set up yourself, with the jellyfish following in the mail the next day, reports boredpanda.com.

Some people were concerned if there’s enough space for the jellyfish. As harsh as it sounds, jellyfish don’t have a traditional central nervous system, and are probably not aware whether they’re in an ocean or in a fish tank.

“If they get close to a filtration intake in a regular fish tank, they would get sucked in and badly mangled,” the team explained to Huffington Post. “They’re made up of over 90% water so they’re very delicate. The water flow in the tank is designed to have a very gentle outflow spread out over a large surface area…. Our design is the first commercially available cylindrical design.”
