Jellies: Dancing Sea Fairies - Manila Ocean Park Series

When seeing pictures of the Manila Ocean Park, you will always notice that people always visit this place and include it in their itinerary. One reason is that it is one of the cheapest attractions in Manila Ocean Park.
For only Php 150, you will get the enter this place and view the different kinds of jelly fishes. Yes, they have tanks featuring species that you and your kids will surely love viewing. 
But it's not like there's a lot of amazing stunts you can see. Their "dancing" is more like a slow waltz rather than hiphop dancing, for example. That may be one reason why they put up lights on the tanks. The changing colors will make your visit more "magical" as these jellies will wow you with their serene floating.
They seem to have two sections - first are the tanks and second would be like a disco hall where these jellies dance around their tanks. Of course, both sections still have the changing lights that awe visitors.
The center is mostly made up of empty boxes that might have been remnants of other tanks but now are just staying there with no aesthetic use at all. Make sure to say your excuses when you want to pose because most people are just posing to take their pictures without looking at the grandeur and form of these creatures. Neither are they reading the names of each jelly type. Of course, being homeschoolers, we have to stop and read each to be able to explain to David what these were.
For parents, please take note to always hold your kid(s). They will easily get lost in a very dark place like this. Chances are that they will run to a tank that catches their attention and you, busy ogling at these fairies, might lose their hold for a nanosec. It would be a havoc shouting and looking for them in this dark area.
