Cephea is a genus of true jellyfish in the family Cepheidae. They are found in the Indo-Pacific and East Atlantic. They are sometimes called crown jellyfish, but this can cause confusion with the closely related genus Netrostoma or the distantly related species in the order Coronatae.
a lovely ✿ jellyfish in a bottle tutorial by bhoomplay ✿ that is a truly stellar alternative/addition to the ✿ glitter jar ✿ that i’ve seen floating around tumblr. i’m sure you can combine both recipes to make your jellyfish float around a sleepy celestial dream as well ~ these are great for anti-anxiety; simply shake em around if you’re feeling anxious/manic/etc and just observe the sparklyness until the glitter begins to settle, sort of like a timer or something to simply distract you :)

No one knows why the rays gather like this, whether to mate, herd prey or migrate or just for the sheer joy of being together
