Topic: “EcoSpheres” for Final Loads

Hi Cups and Balls Cognoscenti,

I see there is a vigorous thread re-emerging about Final Loads.

I have posted previously about Ice Balls, Snow, Beer, etc…

Today, I happened across these beauties. Think of a “Green” theme!

What do you think?

“EcoSphere

Inside these sealed glass balls live shrimp, algae, and bacteria, all swimming around in filtered seawater. Put it somewhere with some light, and this little ecosystem will chug along happily for years, no feeding or cleaning necessary, totally oblivious to the fact that the rest of the world exists outside.”

I think the idea is cool, but may not be entirely practical.

To start, you would have to find cups that they fit under, be prepared for a possible mess (both wet and potentially sharp), and if they did not break on you, one would still have to handle with some care because since they are not completely filled, there is the shifting of the weight to deal with. If someone could come up with a solution to all of this, that would be cool too.

Just my thoughts.
