Ecosphere

Saturday, June 19th, 2010

Plants, snails, live shrimp, algae and ferns live in this self-sustaining ecosystem. All it needs is a bit of indirect sunlight ….this would be perfect for my office that has no windows!

This one, available from Hammacher Schlemmer, claims that it was developed as the result of years of research at NASA! This is one smart ecosphere!! It is 5 1/4″ diameter.

$199.95 at Hammacher Schlemmer

One from Amazon has a life expectancy of two years and also contains standard ecosphere fare of red shrimp, algae and seawater. I read the reviews and one person loved watching the little shrimp swim around and found it very relaxing ….another reviewer thought it was pathetic and a fine example of animal cruelty. You can decide for yourself! It is 4″ round.
