So, here's an invasive species usually only found in the pacific... and this is the fun part

"Clinging jellyfish hang on to eelgrass or seaweed and usually remain in deep water during the day and surface at night to feed."

Be aware of the risk, but re "usually found only in the Pacific" - yah prior to 1894 (gotta love the media):
