Seriously, look at it. How cool is that thing! The EcoQube is on kickstarter and I believe EVERYONE needs one for their home! The most beautiful way to grow herbs, house plants or flowers indoor while using the same plants to clean aquarium water with ease!
How does the EcoQube work?
The heart of the EcoQube is the aquaponics filter which uses plants, the world’s best and most natural filter, to keep your aquarium clean.
It has fish in it! What! And plants! I love it! you will too…check out the campaign on kickstarter before your time to get it ends.
We could all use a piece of nature that we can enjoy or escape to everyday. The problem is that most aquariums that we put in our homes are not sustainable ecosystems. They need maintenance like water changes, filter replacements, and the occasional algae scrub. Aqua Design Innovations, an undergraduate UCSD startup has designed the EcoQube, a compact aquarium that uses plants like basil to keep the water clean. How does it work? The EcoQube is a recirculating system where the fish produce nutrients for the plants that grow above it. This concept is called aquaponics, a method of sustainable food production that the founders of Aqua Design Innovations, Kevin Liang and Eric Suen, see as the future of organic farming.
