Aquarium of the future

Grow fresh herbs aquaponically in the Ecofarm

A fish tank where you can grow plants and herbs on top. Two entrepreneurs from The Netherlands, Alex Konijnenburg and his Spanish companion Ignacio Lopéz designed an eco friendly fish tank that uses waste water to grow plants. This process is called Aquaponics. Aquaponics is a natures own method of recycling waste water by feeding into plants. During this process the wasted water is filtered and clean water will flow back into the fish tank. It’s a continues eco loop system witch’s reduces water use by 90%. 

The Ecofarm is a tabletop Aquaponics system that allows people to experience the Aquaponics principle at home. ‘You can grow all kind of herbs on the EcoFarm, currently I’m growing chives and parsley but you could grow cherry tomatoes or even little peppers, just to name a few.’ according to Alex

They have launched a crowdfunding campaign on kickstarter were you can pre-order the Ecofarm and become one of the first owners and help them to make the Ecofarm reality.
