Tiny bioluminescent plankton illuminate this spherical environment when you gently swirl it.

$14.95 - 120.00

Let it Glow

Your dog may be adorable. Your cat may be cute. But can they compete with a glowing group of thousands of tiny pets? Bioluminescent plankton called dinoflaggelates illuminate this spherical environment when you gently swirl it. Just let them bask in indirect light during the day and they'll treat you to a soft blue light show at night. Quiet, compact, and easy to care for, the glass sphere lets you hold one of nature's most magical phenomena in the palm of your hand. It makes a unique interactive aquarium, and an awe-inspiring work of living art that won't bite the hand that feeds it. Components made in China and the USA.

Dino Nutrients sold separately.

Comments about UncommonGoods Bioluminescent Aquarium:

I also purchased this product for my college aged son for his birthday ... he had planned a trip to Puerto Rico to see bioluminescent bay, and had to cancel due to an illness, he was so excited when I gave him this gift, said it was the next best thing to being there ... we have followed instructions exactly and it has been 7 days now and still no glow very disappointing.
