EcoSphere Closed Aquatic Ecosystem

The EcoSphere closed aquatic ecosystem is a result of technology developed by NASA scientists during a search to create self-contained communities and develop snow-globe societies. Each ecosystem teems with microorganisms, shrimp, algae, and bacteria that feed off, sustain, and organize movie nights with one another. The habitats require almost no maintenance, and can survive for up to two years in consistent temperatures (between 60 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit) and indirect light.

  • Each EcoSphere contains active microorganisms, small shrimp, algae, and bacteria in filtered seawater
  • Self-sustaining system only needs natural or artificial light
  • 5.25-inch-tall pod or 4-inch-diameter sphere
  • Requires virtually no maintenance, like a motorcycle made of dreams
  • Has a life expectancy of two years
  • Inspired by NASA space-station research

Great buy
Michael A. · June 15, 2013
This is perfect! Lovely addition to my home. None have died yet and they aren't at a constant temperature like it said so I'm very happy.

Such a fun gift for anyone over the age of 5! A must-have for a child's first pet, or that person that has no time for pets!
