floating garden freshwater aquarium

it may just be a concept for now, but its a great idea… using 100% vegetation filtration to keep the fish content and the water clear.

here’s how it all goes down..

designed by benjamin graindorge and duende studio, this tank not only looks nice, but uses some simple ingenuity to accomplish the task of water filtration.

basically, nitrate-heavy water from your tank is pulled up into the garden, then passed over a layer of river sand, using bacteria to convert impurities into nitrates. from there, the water is passed over some plant life,  naturally absorbing the nitrates as nutrients.  in a final step, the purified water is thrown back down into the fish tank, and the fish can continue their bliss-filled life in a clean tank.
