nice jrllyfish, TFS Ori

A pretty sight indeed Yanni, but that one does not look like an Aurelia aurita at all. The Moon Jelly does not have such long tentacles at the umrella rim, which also looks quite different from that of an Aurelia. A lateral or top image might clarify the species.
P.s.: This happens to be a cnidarian, not a fish...
