What do you call a school of jellyfish?

On my first (and only) diving trip to Pulau Aur, a tropical island in Malaysia, my travel companions and myself were stung by many tiny jellyfish upon initial contact with the water. They were translucent and in great abundance in that part of the waters that we chose to dive. It was such a "stinging experience", but luckily nothing life-threathening. Remember Nemo and Dory's encounter with a school of jellyfish?

So it's quite, quite ironic that the jellyfish, so unpleasantly stinging, should look so cute when immortalised in porcelain here.

Astounded to discover that jellyfish are brainless, heartless and bloodless.
