    I always thought these Ecospheres by Brookstone were super neat. They have algae, baby shrimps, and other stuff swimming around in their sealed glass, and they live supposedly for quite a long time - self sustaining. From their site: “The delicate coexistence of animal and plant life (red shrimp, algae and microbes) thrives within each glass sphere of seawater.”

    An entire self-sustaining ecosystem thrives within this attractive hand-blown glass sphere: Plants, live shrimp, algae, and microorganisms. It requires only indirect light and moderate temperatures, and offers hours of fascinating viewing. Each EcoSphere comes with a handbook that explains how it works and how to care for it.

    Are you bad with plants and pets? Or do you just want something neat to look at? Well, this is your item. It's an ecosphere, fully sealed with plant life, water, and miniature red shrimp. Very interesting to show visitors and relaxing to sit back and watch. This would work well in an office or home, even a dorm room. No maintenance required and affordable as well.

    I just received one of these for Valentine's Day and I have to say I find it a relaxing diversion from the general stress and hubbub of daily responsibilities. You just have to peer inside this little self-contained ecosystem of busy shrimp and algae, and things seems more manageable afterward.

    genius, organic in a bottle. You never have to feed the shrimp and there is low maintenance.

    This so neat! Its something so different and unique. This is great for those who are bad at looking after pets or just enjoy the beauty of nature. It's an ecosphere, fully sealed with plant life, water, and miniature red shrimp. Very interesting to show visitors and relaxing to sit back and watch.
