Christmas will come late to 11 lucky aquarium enthusiasts, courtesy of Montreal-based Fluval.
The aquarium products brand of Rolf C. Hagen Inc. is sponsoring the Room Tank-Over Contest, which requires contestants to explain in 250 words or less why their fish room deserves a makeover.
A panel of aquarium experts will award the grand prize, a $1,500 deluxe aquarium, to the person with the most compelling essay. The package includes either a 36-gallon saltwater Fluval M-90 aquarium or 34-gallon freshwater Fluval F-90 aquarium, a matching cabinet, filter, heater, decor, substrate, food, water treatments and fish.

Francis Yupangco, Fluval’s aquatic development manager, will do the installation personally.
Contestants who don’t fancy themselves wordsmiths needn’t worry. Fluval will award a $500 Fluval Accent aquarium and cabinet set to 10 runners-up chosen at random.

. The deadline is Jan. 15, 2014.
The contest is open to U.S. residents only.
