Self-Cleaning Aquarium Feeds Attached Herb Garden

Self-Cleaning Aquarium Feeds Attached Herb Garden

The Home Aquaponics Kit is a self-sustaining fish tank that provides nutrients to small plants on its lid.

Nikhil Arora and Alejandro Velez have developed an Aquaponics Garden that allows people to grow herbs in their home. The closed-loop, table-top ecosystem is a fish tank with plants above it. The self-cleaning tank directs the waste-water, which is broken down into nutrients, as fertilizer for the plants. This cleans the water and it then falls back down for the fish.

Aquarium Doubles As Self-Sustaining Herb Garden

Treehugger reports that aquaponics (the mix of aquaculture and hydroponics) has been rising in popularity recently. This garden can be used to grow beans, basil, thyme, baby greens, oregano, mint, parsley, spinach, and other fresh produce.

The Aquaponics Garden is currently raising funds on Kickstarter. The kit is available for a pledge of $50 (33% off the planned retail price) with no assembly required. It includes the tank and garden top, an air pump to bring the nutrients up and oxygenate the water, five pots with pebbles, organic seeds, fish food and water conditioners.
