With our glass EcoSpheres or EcoPods, you can have an entire sea ecosystem on your desk or tabletop. You'll be mesmerized by the tiny red shrimp, algae and microorganisms swimming around decorative plants and pebbles on the sea floor. This fascinating display of art and science contains active microorganisms, bright red shrimp, and algae existing in a clear "soup" of filtered seawater. Only light is needed to keep their world in a perfect plant-and-animal balance: algae and bacteria are eaten by the shrimp whose waste supports their regeneration. Created with technology developed by scientists at NASA. No maintenance required. Since we offer small or large EcoPods, or small or medium EcoSpheres, you’re sure to find a size that suits your space and interest!

Can't wait to buy another!!

Reviewed on: 12/28/2012 12:00:00 AM

We absolutely love our "little fishys", as I call then! They are facinating to watch. I recommend getting a magnifing glass too. Then, you can see them up close, especially when they are on the little branch that's inside the sphere. It'vitually maintenance free. No feeding. Just make sure they get enough sunlight. Our 9 yr old granddaughter is in "awe" of these little creatures & has a boatload of questions. Many we cannot answer. That is the ONLY thing I wish they had included; information/stats regarding the Brine Shrimp themselves. We are contemplating ordering another, in a different shape, for my desk. I like to sit & watch them when I'm feeling the stress of the day. They complement any room as long as it has light. And, they are silent! Seriously, we love ours & will be buying another.

Facinating and Wonderful

Reviewed on: 12/23/2012 12:00:00 AM

Bought this as a gift for my wife. It was something we saw in a store years ago and we loved it, but forgot about it. Had to get it for her Birthday this year! Arrived early, but knew I couldn't just stick in the closet for the week. Took it to work and I enjoyed it on my desk. Watching the shimp swimming around was a point of relaxation. No maintenance but to ensure it receive light. :) My wife really enjoyed getting it and now it sits on her dresser. It adds a spot of life on the dresser that warms the room.

I bought this for my grandaughter for Christmas and have been "babysitting" them for about a week. The shrimp look healthy so far and I am hoping she gets as much a kick out of them as I do. Figure it'll be a great science show and tell at her school.

This is a wonderful gift - for young children curious about how the environment works to mature adults who already own "everything else."

Awesome, you won't be disappointed!

Reviewed on: 12/12/2012 12:00:00 AM

I had my small pod for over 6 years and there were always 2 shrimp in it. People were fascinated with it, although most thought it was a snow globe, so they would shake it, and then realize there were living animals insite. I would have had mine longer, except my cat knocked it off the window sill (where I'd put it temporarily so he wouldn't knock it off the table! Doh!)

Easiest Aquarium Ever!

Reviewed on: 11/27/2012 12:00:00 AM

I had a fish tank when I was in grade school, but could not justify having one now due to the time needed to periodically clean the tank and more time to feed the fish everyday. This EcoSphere is perfect, as I can have my fish, with no work! I have had mine for almost 1 year. The fish are happy on top of a cabinet about 10 feet from a patio window. Lots of indirect light has not caused any algae to be visible, so no maintenance for us so far.

A beautiful product.

Reviewed on: 12/24/2011 12:00:00 AM

There was no external magnet to move the internal glass cleaner (magnet). When I called about it no one knew what I was talking about. They told me there was no need to clean the glass because the shrimp would eat the bacteria, but I tried to explain that there was no way to remove the bacteria and that the external magnet was just to clean the glass, not to remove the bacteria.

I bought this for my dad for Christmas. He is going to love it! I am loving "babysitting" the little guys while I wait for Christmas. However, now I want to buy one for myself, when they go to live with him. :) Many people have asked where I got such a cool thing. IT IS GREAT! I love watching their little legs as they swim around.

My wife enjoys the sea and marine life. We have an aquarium, but she wanted something smaller for the kitchen counter. The Pod was perfect and she was very pleased and surprised when it arrived.

There is no particular use for this product, but for some people, like my 15 year old son, it is a meaningful item. To have an ecosystem on your desk is amazing, and can be very peaceful.[...]
