Inside each closed ecosystem are active micro-organisms, live marine shrimp, algae and bacteria, each living in filtered sea water. Because it is a self-sustaining ecosystem, you never have to feed them. Simply provide your closed ecosystem with a source of indirect natural or artificial light and enjoy this aesthetic blend of art and science, beauty and balance. The shrimp consume the algae and micro-organisms and they, in turn, break down the shrimp waste. Because the living organisms within the ecosystem utilize their resources without overpopulating or contaminating their environment, the closed requires virtually no maintenance.
