    The BYOES Build-Your-Own EcoSystem is a semi-closed, do-it-yourself ecosystem. Simple to set up, this kit contains everything you need to make an exciting system. Simply provide a half liter of purified drinking water -- the rest is included in the kit!

    This kit is a perfect blend of art and science and an incredible learning tool for the entire family. Active microorganisms, colorful marine shrimp, and algae live harmoniously inside this semi-closed system. It needs no maintenance; indirect sunlight is all it takes to keep this fascinating plant-and-animal display thriving.

    The shrimp can live for years inside the BYOES. On average, expect 2 to 3 years; some live even longer. They require no feeding. Everything they need is inside the BYOES in the form of algae and bacteria. Please do not feed the shrimp as it may upset the delicate balance of the ecosystem.

    This kit includes BioSticks™ that act as filters for shrimp waste. They are made with thousands of tiny holes for bacteria and break down waste into usable nutrients.

    Made in the USA. Kit includes live shrimp. Sorry, gift wrap not available.

    The eco-system
    Comments about Product:
    The eco-system is a lot of fun to see the tiny little shrimp swimming around.

    Fun! but research care of the shrimp
    Comments about Product:
    This is a fun project but please do research on care of the shrimp, called opa ulae. The shrimp do need to be fed dried algae or sinking fish food about every two weeks or they will eventually starve. But do not over feed them either! Otherwise it is a great project. I have enjoyed watching the shrimp in my BYOES Build-Your-Own EcoSystem.

    Fun project
    Comments about Product:
    The "cube" is just a little pricey but probably worth the money. It was a fun project. It's educational and pleasant to look at.
