So, if you like the idea of having a little ecosystem to look at in your home/office/classroom/etc, but don’t want to dedicate a whole lot of time, this might be for you. The BLUEiQ has options- you choose which rocks, plants, livestock (shrimp/snails), then just follow the instructions once it all arrives and you’ll have a miniature ecosystem that requires little upkeep- just top up the water when it evaporates.
Also, if you’re not too fond of the angled top glass container, you can order items separately for your own container, just be aware that livestock won’t have the same warranty.
“The BLUEiQ is a miniature ecosystem designed to be educational and beautiful. The goal of the BLUEiQ is to provide its owners with a better understanding of how ecosystems work and of the natural mechanisms that manage the balance of life within them.”
