With sufficient light and a comfortable room temperature, the shrimp, algae and microbes will coexist peacefully in their own little world without any help. Plus, when the life span of 2 to 3 years is up (some have lived up to 10 years), each EcoSphere comes with a replacement, recharge or upgrade policy.
For best results: Do not shake!
Supply 6-12 hours of light a day,
Avoid direct sunlight,
