I just checked out the Stockly's Aquariums site. Nice product and they mention that with proper sunlight they could exist for a year. It's now on my "wish list."

Aloha e Shai,

There is a company on the Big Island called Stockly's Aquariums who in their words:

Create these tiny, self-sufficient worlds that are sealed softball-sized spheres, capsules and elliptical shape in blown glass bottles.

The colonies of shrimp, algae and bacteria - which convert each other's wastes into oxygen, carbon dioxide, water and food - are the most complex, fully closed ecosystems available for your home or office and can survive for over a year or more under proper light conditions.

A hui hou,
