The EcoSphere Closed Aquatic Ecosystem is a complete ecosystem with sea water, algae, bacteria and live marine shrimp, all enclosed in a sealed glass sphere. All you need to do is to place the EcoSphere in sunlight. Unlike an aquarium, you do not need to feed the shrimp or change the water. The ecosystem is self contained and self sustaining.

I want one of these SO BAD! EcoSphere - inside these sealed glass balls live shrimp, algae, and bacteria, all swimming around in filtered seawater. Put it somewhere with some light and they will self-sustain for years, no feeding or cleaning necessary.

This aquarium is not technically completely closed. I made a decision not to cork it shut so gases can still be exchanged with the air.

Aquatic Ecosystems :   An aquatic ecosystem is an ecosystem in a river. Areas of creatures that are dependent on each other and on their atmosphere exist in aquatic ecosystems. The two main types of ecosystem are marine and fresh water ecosystems.

Aquatic Ecosystems

There are lots of aquatic ecosystems. There are river ecosystems, lake ecosystems, ocean ecosystems and many more. A lot of these ecosystems are made up of lots of species.

These are Ecojars. They are amazing, tiny,little worlds....in a jar. You need pond sludge to make them.

I will use the voss bottle! Ecojar - An entire aquarium ecosystem encapsulated in glass. A fun project for the kids and adults too.
