I fully respect developing and experimenting with the concept of a self-contained environment. However, a company has taken this imperfect system and now sells it for a profit- there is a HUGE difference there. The people who buy this don't use it for further gaining knowledge, they use it as a decoration, which they don't realize is cruel. The company lies to its customers and claims that this is a fully self sustaining environment in which the shrimp are properly cared for.
If you want to keep these shrimp (which are brackish for the long term btw), you can easily purchase them as feeders from stores that sell seahorse food. Despite the desire to "save" these shrimp from the ecosphere, you only serve to give this company profit and prompt them to produce more.
