The aquarium has 20 adult and 50 baby jellyfish and there will be hourly talks about the creatures during the school holidays.

Paul Sloan, head aquarist, said a special tank protected the delicate fish.

People will also have a chance to see octopuses which were rescued from the south coast, and there will be an Easter egg treasure hunt for youngsters.
