This self sustaining EcoSphere is like having your very own tiny world. The EcoSphere Closed Aquatic Ecosystem is a completely closed, balanced, glass ecosystem. Inside this self sustaining ecosystem are shrimp, algae, and microorganisms in salt water.
This technology for this self sustaining ecosphere was developed by NASA scientists in an attempt to study our own planet’s biosphere.
These little glass balls are actually pretty cool. Each one is made of hand blown glass, filled with water, a branch, some decorative rock and actual living marine shrimp. The shrimp inside these amazing ecospheres live for between two and three years. Thus, it can be a great home decor idea as well.
Additionally, you don’t need to worry about maintenance of this complete miniature world. The EcoSphere only needs indirect light and comfortable room temperature (between 60F and 80F). There is no feeding or water changes required. It comes with a handbook detailing how to take care of the EcoSphere pod. EcoSphere Closed Aquatic Ecosystem is a perfect gift item that blend of science and art.
