Smile Everything Ecosphere!

Hi there,
I decided to post this new thread for anybody who has any knowledge about Ecospheres. I was resently searching through the form for some answers to some questions but I couldn't find anything about them.

If you are someone who has created multiple ecospheres in the past or your just getting into them, this is the thread for your questions and answers. Please post photos and any info about past experiences with Ecospheres.

Thanks, InvertGuy

If you mean people putting some kind of life into a sealed container then there is a whole youtube channel devoted to this called 'life in jars'. If you mean specifically the company that makes "ecospheres" which is a totally sealed glass ball for like 200 dollars... well there are almost no pictures available anywhere of those things after they have been running a little while. The reason? They will look terrible of course. You can't seal something like that up totally and not expect a disaster with all the shrimp dying, algae taking over, and that plant stem they stick in there just rotting away.

Yes, I do know about the youtube channel called "Life In Jars" and also about the sealed glass "ecospheres" that you can buy. I posted this topic to talk about aquatic, self-sustaining, sealed or unsealed mini ecosystems. In the past, I have created sealed aquatic ecosystems with live plants and thousands of mini aquatic organisms relying on each other. I have even kept glass worms, scuds and snails alive inside for periods of time. If anybody else has any experience with these, please comment.
Thanks, Tanner
