Remember in Men In Black II when K had his own little world that he kept inside a locker at the bus station? The EcoSphere Closed Aquatic Ecosystem is like that, only underwater and without any little aliens. These gorgeous orbs contain living organisms that need virtually no maintenance or care whatsoever. You don’t even need to feed them, because they feed on the algae and bacteria inside the sphere. EchSpheres are each tiny little worlds, and they make a beautiful and unique addition to any room.

From the product page:

The  Sphere EcoSphere contains between 3 and 15 shrimp, active micro-organisms, algae and bacteria, each existing in filtered sea water. Because the EcoSphere is a self-sustaining ecosystem, you never have to feed the life within. Simply provide your EcoSphere with a source of indirect natural or artificial light and enjoy this aesthetic blend of art and science, beauty and balance.

Because the living organisms within the EcoSphere utilize their resources without overpopulating or contaminating their environment, the EcoSphere requires virtually no maintenance. EcoSpheres have an average life expectancy of two years. However, it is not uncommon for shrimp populations to be thriving in systems as old as 7 years.

Due to the live nature of the product EcoSpheres only ship to the continental USA, they cannot be shipped to Alaska, Hawaii, AFO/FPO, PO boxes, nor Internationally due to export/import requirements.
