This Bioluminescent Plankton Mini Aquarium is an interactive wonder that houses bioluminescent plankton right in the palm of your hand.
Bioluminescence is the ability of living organisms to emit light. This aquarium, in particular, is filled with Dinoflagellates or Dinos for shorter.
This virtually invisible plankton can glow in the most beautiful blue-ish way.
Just to clear out any confusion – the plankton doesn’t glow constantly. Dinos emit the blue light only when shaken and it must be relatively dark to see it.
Still, watching the sphere start to glow in your hands and knowing that those are tine organisms doing all the work truly fills with a sense of wonder.
The Dino Sphere will house your tiny plankton pets and you will be able to care for them. Read up on how much sunlight they need and feed them nutrients from time to time.
But that would be about it. This makes Dinos the perfect pet for those who don’t like too much hassle as well as kids who need to be taught some responsibility.
Dinos naturally live in the ocean and can still be hard to find there. But with this bioluminescent aquarium Dinos can live with you so you can admire their beautiful glow every night.
