i was browsing the net only moments ago, and came across a self-contained aquatic ecosystem. it's a brilliant piece to own, as it satisfies a number of needs: the need for art, the need to learn, and the need for a small, low-to-no-maintenance pet.
enclosed in glass, this miniature ecosystem, which consists of algae, shrimp and micro-organisms in natural seawater, is self sustaining with the perfect balance of animal and plant life. they have an average life expectancy of 2+ years and require no feeding or cleaning.
how interesting. i want one.
