Comb Jellyfish-Beroe cucumis 9-26-15-6737.jpg

Beroe cucumis will dine on other species of Beroe and in captive situations inevitably wins out; it also preys on lobate and cydippid ctenophores and can be found in dense surface aggregations of several hundred within a small area. Beroe abyssicola is more of a deep water species, where it has an attractive rose coloration. This coloration tends to be lost when it visits surface waters, but the distinctive dark color of the pharynx often remains. Like other comb jellies, these Beroe have bioluminescent areas of the body. Beroe are a popular display for public aquariums featuring jellies. Since culturing them is not feasible, they must be collected. Feeding is a problem unless a reliable supply of comb jelly prey is available., Jellyfish Bell shaped side view , Black Water diving over Gufstream Current,depth 600 ft.
