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!

Comments about Product: I got this for Christmas for my boyfriend. We both enjoy watching the little shrimp swimming around. It's basically like having a no-maintenance aquarium, with tiny shrimp instead of fish. So glad I came across this!

Can't wait to buy another!!
Comments about Product: 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
Comments about Product: 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.

Comments about Product: 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.

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