MiGi cube self sustaining Marine ecosystem???

What is MiGi Cube Eco-System?

The MiGi Self-Sustaining Marine Ecosystem reproduces the extreme natural living environment of Hawaiian lava formed ponds in which these tiny Scarlet Shrimps (maximum growth: 0.5") live and thrive. These shrimps have adapted and evolved over the millennia in order to survive in some of the most challenging environments. Their natural habitats range from pitch-dark lava caves beneath the ocean floor to solar-heated puddles in decomposed lava fields. When introduced into the MiGi Ecosystem, the Scarlet Shrimps have been known to live for many, many years with only a minimum of attention!

The Scarlet Shrimps that live in the MiGi Ecosystem are quite comfortable. The Scarlet Shrimps in each MiGi Ecosystem are hand-raised in captivity, so that there is no harm to Scarlet Shrimp habitats in the wild. Scarlet Shrimps are only allowed to be hand-raised and aqua-cultured. They are not allowed to be harvested from the wild by the U.S. government or United States Department of Interior.

How Does MiGi Cube Eco-System Work?

Exposure to a few hours of light per day will cause green algae to grow in the MiGi Ecosystem, providing the Scarlet Shrimps with their food source. The light source may come from indirect sunlight (very important) or virtually any type of artificial room lighting, including ordinary light bulbs and fluorescent lamps.

Therefore, the MiGi Ecosystem require NO FEEDING!

Scarlet Shrimps are scavengers and filter feeders and they clean up after themselves and continue to maintain the quality of the water throughout their lifespan.

Therefore, the MiGi Ecosystem require NO WATER CHANGE!
