This is a very special little gift indeed. The world's first completely enclosed ecosystem. It's a feat created by NASA Scientists a totally self contained, self sustaining miniature universe wrapped in a clear, glass shell. You really have to see it to believe it.
Every single EcoSphere contains a totally sealed ecosystem. There are teeny tiny micro-organisms inside - they're the shrimp and algae you can see in the picture swimming around in the clear soup' of filtered sea-water. You don't need to feed the little shrimp or clean the water, all you need to do is provide a safe environment with lots of indirect natural or artificial light. EcoSpheres can vary with life expectancy they can live for anything up to 1 - 3 Years
The Small EcoSphere comes in either a sphere or pod design. The Small Sphere is the most popular EcoSphere containing 3 shrimp and a hand cut piece of Gorgonia, whilst the Pod is identical in content to the small round with 3 shrimp, it is a taller, leaner shape it's just a matter of personal preference which shape you prefer. Once you click the buy button you will be able to make your selection of round or oval.
