"porpita porpita - the blue button jelly - is a neustonic species mostly found in the tropics; that is, it floats near the surface of the water. The circular disc is made of chitin and filled with gas, allowing these jellies to float. The tentacles (zooids) radiating from the disc do all the feeding."

The life cycle of a jellyfish. After an egg and sperm fuse and form a fertilized egg during sexual reproduction, a larva develops that attaches to a rock or other object. At this point, the larva develops into a polyp. Through asexual reproduction, the polyp transforms into a colony of polyps that resembles a stack of saucers. Each saucer in the stack detaches itself from the colony as a new medusa. From here the reproductive cycle repeats.
