Aqua Planet Ilsan

Tenji worked with the Islan Aquarium (Seoul, Korea) and Reynolds Polmer Technology to create a one-of-a-kind tank for moon jellies. The jellyfish tank required a horseshoe shape that is conducive to generating a steady flow of water. This keeps the invertebrates from becoming trapped in the corners as they would in a traditional tank.Tenji worked with the owners and RPT to design the tank so that it worked well for keeping the animals alive and was maintainable by aquatist staff.

RPT created yet another one-of-a-kind tank that was designed for a special creature at Ilsan – the jellyfish. The jellyfish tank required a horseshoe shape that is conducive to generating a steady flow of water. This keeps the invertebrates from becoming trapped in the corners as they would in a traditional tank. At Ilsan, Reynolds manufactured two identical tanks that are tall enough (six and a half feet) to allow visitors to walk under them and experience the magical movements of the sea jellies from all angles.
