In 2006 we built a new house & had our first pond installed before the house was even completed. I had always wanted a babbling brook in my yard. We didn't know anything about ponds, fish, & water gardening. I'm a voracious student & within a year we had koi, goldfish, & many water lilies & plants. We participate in a pond tour show & in 2007 that was our second tour. I was looking for something new & different to have for the tour & discovered on EBAY a clear sphere that went in the pond & the fish would swim up in it & magnify them three times their size. I bid on it & just as I was about to win it the seller informed me it had a flaw in it & he couldn't sell it to me. I was extremely disappointed, because I knew I just had to have one of these! I googled all over the internet, only to learn the company that made them had gone out of business. I searched until I found the inventor & he said he was just playing around with vacuum properties but, really wasn't into ponds, etc. He was looking for someone that was & who might want to take over the company. I said that would be me! We began Aquatic Add-A-Sphere® in 2007 & are now selling them all over the world! Imagine feeding and gazing at your fish above the surface of your water garden. Add-A-Sphere® appears to defy gravity. Install it with underwater lights and prepare for some beautiful night viewing of your fish. We have a goldfish that's in our Add-A-Sphere® every night & we tease he's on raccoon patrol! It actually is a safe haven from predators too. It brings your fish above the water line while magnifying them three times their size and adding a new dimension of excitement to any water garden or pond. We really enjoy seeing our fish up close. It's allowed us to see distinct characteristics that we've given all the koi names. They seem to enjoy their world from a new perspective as much as we enjoy seeing them!
Sphere is filled with water using a shop-vac to suck the air out and sits on the pedestal. This product has a feature which allows you to automatically feed inside the globe with ease. Watch your fish feed, in a magnified view! Magnification allows for early detection of potential medical problems. Who knew that an EBAY search would turn our hobby into an international internet business? And now New England Koi and Pond Supply is bringing the Add-a-Sphere to you.
