  • I wish he'd told us how long the fountain's glowing lasted. Also, would the algae recover their superpower if exposed to a cloudy day outdoors?

  • Hello

  • BTW i saw this in real life at a beach once it was awesome! you could walk on the beach and the area around your feet would glow

  • What if u keep it at a window so the sun gets shined on it every day?

  • Call PETA.....

  • That ending though, bahahaha

  • Your old videos are actually really amazing!

  • Can u set up an energy source for the allge to stay living like a uv lamp or heat lamp or something of that sort? Or just stick the fountain in a sunny window while at work with like a clear glass back so any allge in the pump still gets energized?

  • can you give me a new link that works? the link to buy the algae doesn't work anymore. thanks :D

  • Hi love your channel! I bought bioluminescent dinoflagellate medium from the link below.. I know it needs to be agitated to glow, but do I need to add a chemical or do something with the liquid before it becomes activated? Having trouble getting it to work..

  • The link for online algae sellar isn't working please resolve it

    • Just google how to isolate glowing bacteria from fresh herring

  • The picture of pam on the fridge

  • Is it safe to drink

  • Those algae are living in pain.

  • You are seriously the best youtuber ever!!!!! 😊

  • 2018 anybody?

  • All in all a trip to the beach and a bunch of hot glue and plates and a 60$ bottle of this stuf will l give you this... it is so cool though so Nah what ever but that stuff

  • Is there a way to keep a colony of them living for longer if they get nutrients and sunlight?

  • What if you put it on a vibrater? Please do that for a video!

  • So how long will the light last

  • Why do you look high in your earlier videos?

  • Who pisses with the lights off?

  • CTR


  • Imagine the vegans

  • Vanilla ice is an unoriginal misuse of human cells.

  • Ok so I am guessing "growth medium" is just food for the algae right, so if you added this to a backyard pond with koi and turtles, would it in theory be able to glow indefinitely? Would it harm the animals?

  • Just use tonic water


  • 0:34 “cough cough” Copy right “cough cough”

  • When that guy was in the bathroom, did you use a filter?

  • #algaejustice

  • You can find the dinoflagellates that bioluminess at
