I am SO PLEASED with my dinoflagellates!! The pouches of organisms I received were so full of Pyrocystis that they appeared as millions of tiny shards of crystal floating in matrix and the very next morning (day 1) I swirled the glass and saw a glorious blue aurora fill the orb. Perfect! Looking forward to years of glow.
My PyroDinos arrived happy and healthy. I was initially worried at dusk the first day when I shook the orb and only saw dim light. But after coming back later that evening, the brilliant glow made my jaw drop! 3 weeks later, I have about 1000ml full in the orb, which is at the halfway point. Will leave the rest empty for oxygen. They’re as bright today as they were on day 1 with no real maintenance. I keep the orb in a corner with no direct light. I play with the orb at night. Sometimes I leave the plug open for airflow during the day. That’s it! High likelihood I get these as Christmas gifts for some friends this year.
I've had the orb for nearly two weeks and no bioluminescence yet. Rather disappointed. I saw the brown layer after a week and added the nutrients as instructed but another week on and no sign of life.
The bioluminescent Bio-Orb will only produce bioluminescence at night, in a dark room. If you are not seeing any bioluminescence at night in the dark then we offer a 60-Day free replacement guarantee. Please contact us at email@example.com
Well, it sort of works. We certainly have not seen the kind of results that are in the picture above. The plankton DO illuminate when agitated, but it hardly is a lot..more like a small sprinkling. We followed the directions to a T. Maybe we have to wait? Have had it since Dec 10. Today is Dec 23.
Give the PyroDinos some time to multiply and grow. Check for bioluminescence later in the evening and in a dark room for full effect. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you do not see positive changes over the coming weeks.
Every night I'll swirl it around a few times to see the bioluminescence, too bad it only lasts a few seconds, but it's very cool to see. Added some dino nutrients today, hopefully it will start glowing brighter.
