Can you make an EcoSphere with tap water?

- Fill the bottom of the bottle with pebbles.
- Cover the pebbles with a thin layer of activated charcoal.
- Add a ½ inch layer of peat moss (a type of very nutritious soil) on top of the activated charcoal.
Do EcoSpheres work?
How does it work? The EcoSphere works by gathering energy from the light and converting it biochemically. Light, together with the carbon dioxide in the water, enables the algae to produce oxygen by photosynthesis. The waste from the shrimp is broken down by the bacteria into nutrients, which in turn feed the algae.
