Comments about Product: I got this gift for my husband so he could put it on his desk at work. It came with 4 shrimp. Product arrived in a well packaged in an overnight ECO BOX. Despite the weather being incredibly hot the sphere was fine. There are shrimp reported to have lived 15 yrs in these spheres. If yours die the company will recharge yours w new shrimp and you can also trade in for larger spheres by mailing it back to the company. I am extremely pleased. Wish it was larger but this was a super cool gift. It would make a great gift for kids old enough to realize its glass and fragile. Would be a great gift for someone in a dorm. I plan to order a few more for gifts! Everyone who has seen it likes it
