[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This little (10-cm long, including tentacles) medusa
shared a 1000-liter aquarium with two conspecifics in
the Berlin Zoo, making its population density far less
than that of the surrounding human metropolis. Every
dentist's waiting room should be endowed with such an
aquarium, albeit a smaller version...watching medusa
ballet about is as tranquilizing as novocaine and painless. But steer clear of the nematocysts!

Hi Michael.
I never saw medusa in aquarium but I often met them in the sea. Nice shot with delicate lighting and colours. Nice reproduction of its shape, coloration and other features. Diagonal composition of the image is wonderful too. My compliments and TFS.
