Comb Jelly

Hormiphora sp.

Description:

The lines going up its body (combs) would blink with different colors because the cilia that make up the combs refract light. The cilia also move, as demonstrated in this video I took: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YuYarRZ3... Found among hundreds of other jellyfish, but the ones that looked like this seemed most common

Habitat:

Boat slip at a marina
