PetStoreSupply - Pet Supplies, EcoSphere Closed Aquatic Ecosystem. Small Sphere EcoSphere. This fascinating enclosed world contains marine shrimp, algae and micro-organisms. Made from hand blown glass, each EcoSphere is a completely enclosed, self-sustaining little world. The EcoSphere only needs indirect light and comfortable room temperature (between 60F and 80F.) The EcoSphere works on the basis that a closed system recycles its nutrients and does not produce excess waste. The shrimp conume the algae and micro-organisms and they, in turn, break down the shrimp waste. External light, either artifical or natural, keeps the algae growing. There is no feeding or water changes required. The average life span is between 2 and 3 years. Each EcoSphere comes with a replacement, recharge or upgrade policy.

EcoSphere Closed Aquatic Ecosystem Customers Review - "I purchased this after talking with one of my son's classmates parent. They said this would be great to teach children about how the cycle of life works. At first he was just happy to see it was something new, but every day he watches it intently, counts his 4 little shrimp and is always asking questions about how everything inside interacts. It's a great tool to explain how it all works. He loves to watch them move around and swim and climb onto the coral. He's learning a lot about how everything interacts and he's slowly getting to understand that everything has a purpose. "
