Puppies and kittens for Christmas? How boring and uninspired. This year, enter to win your very own pet jellyfish gliding languorously around a desktop-sized aquarium with a Jellyfish Cylinder Nano and 3 live jellyfish from Jellyfish Art (a $250 value)!

Due to overseas shipping restrictions, this giveaway is open to residents of the Continental US only. Sorry, guys.

About the Jellyfish Cylinder Nano Aquarium

Jellyfish Art produces fully-equipped jellyfish tanks and kits that have received accolades ranging from Best Product of the Year at the 2011 Global Pet Expo, to Top-Ten Product Campaign on Kickstarter, to impassioned declarations from me about how much better my childhood would have been if I'd had pet jellyfish as companions instead of sea monkeys that died before I even got through the instructions on how to teach them to do circus tricks.

Jellyfish Art's latest design, the Jellyfish Cylinder Nano, exemplifies the company's attempt to bring jellyfish love to all. They say it is "the easiest and most affordable aquarium that makes keeping jellyfish simple for anyone." Tanks hold 2 gallons of water and measure 15" tall x 8" in diameter. Nano features and specs include:

  • Special laminar water flow pattern not possible in regular fish tanks, which mimics the natural open water habitat of jellyfish.
  • Integrated mechanical, chemical, and biological filtration in a hidden compartment to facilitate tank operation and cleaning.
  • A whisper quiet air pump that oxygenates the water and introduces no heat to keep the jellyfish comfortable at room temperature.
  • LED lighting that changes the colors of the jellyfish with the click of a remote control button.
  • Durable, crystal clear, hand-molded acrylic composition.

The Jellyfish Cylinder Nano kit up for giveaway includes all of the basics to get started rearing your jellyfish, including the tank and all accessories necessary for operation (remote control, sponge filter, salt, air pump, pipette, activated charcoal, nitrifying bacteria starter, and hydrometer) for setup and use; the winner need only add water. Instructions for tank setup can be found here.

Our giveaway winner will also receive a starter supply of jellyfish food and 3 small, cuddly, precious, non-stinging cute-enough-to-be-a-Gerber Moon jellyfish. Don't believe me? Then take it from Vanilla Ice.

Note: Jellyfish are shipped from Jellyfish Art's certified breeding facility to your doorstep after tank setup is complete. In other words, the tank and accessories will ship first. The winner will then notify Jellyfish Art when his/her aquarium is up and running, at which point the company will overnight the jellyfish and their food.

Pet Jellyfish Aquarium Giveaway Entry Instructions

To register, click here and fill out the Pet Jellyfish Aquarium Giveaway entry form. Or, if you're already a member of DudeIWantThat.com, when the magic entry form button appears, just click it to enter.

Giveaway prize includes includes: 1 x Jellyfish Cylinder Nano aquarium; all accessories needed to get the tank up and running; 3 live jellyfish (shipped separately); and a starter supply of jellyfish food (shipped with jellyfish). Retail/Kickstarter backer value is $250.

The Pet Jellyfish Aquarium Giveaway entry period is open through 11:59 p.m. ET on Sunday, December 13, 2015. Our drawn winner will be contacted by email within 48 hours of the entry period's conclusion, and will have 12 hours to respond and claim his/her prize. (Should we not hear back from a drawn winner in the specified time period, a new winner will be drawn and contacted.)

Provided the winner responds to notification in a timely manner, the aquarium prize will arrive in time for Christmas. Again, tanks must be received and set up prior to live jellyfish and food shipment, which are overnighted once Jellyfish Art receives word that your new pets' home is ready for them.

Due to overseas shipping restrictions, this giveaway is open to residents of the Continental US only. Sorry, guys.
