Large Sphere EcoSphere with 4″ LED lighted base. This fascinating enclosed world accommodates 12 to 13 marine shrimp, algae and micro-organisms. Constructed from hand blown glass, Every EcoSphere is a fully enclosed, self-sustaining little world. The EcoSphere only needs indirect light and comfortable room temperature (between 60F and 80F.) The EcoSphere works at the basis that a closed system recycles its nutrients and does not produce excess waste. The shrimp consume the algae and micro-organisms and so they, in turn, break down the shrimp waste. External light, either artificial or natural, assists in keeping the algae growing. There’s no feeding or water changes required. Every EcoSphere comes with a replacement, recharge or upgrade policy. This EcoSphere comes with a Silver 4″ LED base. The LED base is a non-rotating lighted display base for the EcoSphere that may be powered by a wall outlet, USB connection, or 3 AAA batteries (not included). The LED may also be changed to four different colors on a slow or fast pulse; or set to a particular color. The algae in the EcoSphere may overgrow if the LED base is left on for too long.
