Giveaway: Pet Jellyfish Tank

By: on December 02, 2013

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 jellyfish tank (a $366 value)!

About Jellyfish Art Tanks

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 excited declarations from me about how much better having jellyfish than having kids would be, and how if I had kids I would definitely be interested in trading them for some jellyfish.

The 1 Jelly Kit up for giveaway includes all of the basics to get started rearing your jellyfish, including a 6-gallon desktop tank and accessories, 30mL of jellyfish food, and one small, cuddly, precious, cute-enough-to-be-a-Gerber moon jellyfish. Acrylic tanks measure 17" high x 15" wide x 8" long, and arrive salt-water ready--once set up, just add water.

Instructions for tank setup can be found here. Tank accessories include:

  • Feeding Pipette
  • Whisper Quiet Air Pump
  • Airline
  • Adjustable Airline Valve
  • Check Valve
  • Hydrometer
  • Substrate
  • Color-Changing LED and Remote Control
  • LED Power Supply

NOTE: When Jelly Kit orders are placed, the tanks and accessories are shipped first for setup. Once tanks are up and running, buyers notify Jellyfish Art, who will then overnight the jellyfish and their food.

Dude's Pet Jellyfish Tank Giveaway includes a single, live small moon jellyfish. Additional small and large moon jellyfish can be purchased through Jellyfish Art here, as can jellyfish tank buddies, the cleaner snail and the red leg hermit crab. Jellyfish Art recommends housing no more than 5 small or 3 large jellyfish in a single tank.

Entry Instructions

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

To register, click here and fill out the Pet Jellyfish Tank 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.

The Pet Jellyfish Tank Giveaway entry period is open until 11:59 p.m. ET on Sunday, December 8th. Our drawn winner will be contacted by email within 48 hours of the entry period's conclusion.

Provided the winner responds to notification in a timely manner, the tank 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 pet's home is ready for him. Or her. I know jellyfish don't have cranial organs but I'm not sure about the sexual ones.

Something else I know is that if you get stung by a jellyfish, having someone pee on the affected area does not ameliorate the (immense) pain associated with it. At all.

I would prefer not to discuss how I have this knowledge.
