What Is An Ecosystem Or Ecosphere?
Each Ecosphere is a self- contained Ecosystem within hand blown glass. They are all unique to each other due to the natural products contained within.
Inside each Ecosphere are small marine shrimp, filtered sea water, algae and micro-organisms. The system is completely sealed and does not need anything else (apart from the right environment) to survive.
The only care the sphere requires is a source of indirect natural or artificial light. The gorgonion, gravel and glass offer surface area to the Ecosystem. All of these surfaces act as places for the shrimp to hide and where micro-organisms can attach themselves.
The Ecosystem demonstrates the delicate nature of our home earth environment. Unlike our planet these spheres utilise their own resources without over populating or contaminating their environment.
Ecospheres have an average life expectancy of 2-3 years however it is not uncommon for them to survive for 7 to 10 years.
