Build an Aquatic Ecosphere





Introduction: Build an Aquatic Ecosphere

Step 1:

sorry for my English which is not perfect, because I am french and I am not fluent in English.

Step 2: Principle of the Ecosphere.

An ecosphere is an ecosystem that grows alone, animals and plants intertwine in harmony without outside help.
Nevertheless she needs a little light.

Step 3: To Create Its Own Ecosphere Need You.

Step 4: -A Hermetic or Another Glass Jar.

Step 5: For the Bottom of the Aquarium Gravel or Small Stones.

Step 6: -Aquarium Shrimp, Mine Are the Red Cherry

Step 7: - Small Aquarium Plants

-for my part I put the Anubias nana as well as a foam type Cladophora aegagropila balls so that the shrimp can hide.

Step 8:

-Prepare your ecosphere at the beginning water bottled
water will be slightly cloudy, but over time it will clear up.

Step 9:

Do not over expose its ecosphere in bright light because it encourages the proliferation of algae.If you see that your shrimp lose their skin (it molting) is quite normal, they lose their skin as they grow.

Here is my ecosphere, it has today a month, the entire ecosystem is doing well

    Hi there!

    I see it has been 2 years since you did the close system..

    can you tell us what's up ?
    or how long did they lasted ?

    I'm a since teacher and I want to do it with my students one day...

    Où est-que vous avez acheté les crevettes?

    Any Update on how long it lasted? I really want to make one for my office desk but I want to make sure it doesn't die quickly

    One month after its creation

    Is it still alive?

    No I have not changed the water for a month, it is closed tightly, the purpose of the Ecosphere and that life is all alone
