Fish Food

There are certain essentials you need for gardening success: seeds, sunlight, water, goldfish. That last one may be unexpected, but it is the key ingredient to this revolutionary countertop garden.

The double-decker combination of garden and fish bowl creates a symbiotic ecosystem. In the top tray, basil, mint, spinach, baby greens, and other edible or decorative plants thrive as nutrient-rich water is circulated past their roots. That process purifies the water, which is then sent back to the 3-gallon tank below, creating a happy, healthy habitat for a betta fish.

The Water Garden makes an intriguing visual centerpiece for your own environment, whether that's on a side table or countertop, in an office, classroom or kitchen. Made in Union City, California.

    The instructional video was much easier to follow. The tank was larger than I expected but great! Very easy, sharp and clean design. We placed a beta and two snails. The seeds practically grow overnight, it's amazing. We love it!!

      PLEASE buy a different tank for the sake of your fish

          Comments about AQUAFARM:

          At first, I thought this tank would be really great for my beloved Siamese fighting fish. However, after a few weeks, I noticed the water quality had greatly diminished. Furthermore, over half of the water evaporates within a week; because of this, your fish won't have enough room to swim. Please think of how you would feel if you were forced to live in a small, dirty area for your entire life, and please don't do that to your fish. Lastly, the tank comes with radish seeds, which stank up my entire room and made my eyes and nose sting once they started growing.

                  Really cool, sprouts started growing in just a few days. And the betta is still alive, so it must be working.

                  Arrived fast and well packed.

                  We ordered this for my brother and his girlfriend because they already have cats, dogs, and chickens, and an outdoor garden so why not a fish that grows herbs. Unbeknownst to us my brother's girlfriend saw this on Pinterest but couldn't find it anywhere. All this to say, it was the perfect gift.

                  Comments about AQUAFARM:

                  We love our Aquafarm but it's a little harder to use than we had thought. The water isn't staying as clear as we would like (it's pretty murky) and after a few weeks of sprouts and wheat grass, they seem to be drying up. Not sure if we need to replant them or what the deal is. Our Beta also keeps swimming into the filer and getting stuck up under it, which I can't imagine is good for him. But the concept is cool and we're going to keep working at getting the right balance to keep the water clear, the plants alive and the fish alive!

                        Gave this to our Son-in-Law and Daughter. As a Biology Water Aquatics specialist and a water conservation manager for a local city it was a perfect match. They set it up and had plants growing in just a couple of days. Their Beta seems happy and healthy so far. Easy set up and great results. The only problem is now he wants to take the tank to his office at the environmental and conservation center for the city. Daughter is campaigning for keeping it at home. Thanks for a great product that not only looks great but is educational as well.
