The Aquapioneers kit can transform a 54L (60x30x30 cm) aquarium into an aquaponic ecosystem. At the intersection of hardware and ecology, the ecosystem will allow you to grow fresh and tasty food all year round.

This little piece of nature, will engage and inspire you, your family and your friends.

The Kit can also be accompanied by the regular maintenance services of our team to ensure that your ecosystem is always healthy (ideal for offices, coworking spaces, schools, and hotels).

DIY digital fabrication files

Make the Aquapioneers kit by yourself!

This option is for all “the Makers” who want to download the DIY digital fabrication files and want to go to a manufacturing workshop to cut, sand and varnish the wooden pieces and get the other components from their local providers.

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW?

How does it work?

The Ecosystem uses a natural process called Aquaponics, which harnesses the relationships between beneficial microorganisms, fish, and plants to grow fresh & delicious produce. The fish process the food they receive and produce ammonia-rich waste. Microorganisms convert the ammonia into nitrates (organic plant fertilizer), simultaneously supplying the plants with nutrients and the fish with clean water!

As a result of this natural process, you won’t have to clean the tank again, or worry about the freshness of your food!

Size & weight

Without water the system weight more or less 25 kg.

Once the aquarium is filled up and the growbed full of clay pebble the entire system will weight around 100kg.

Low consumption LED

The Ecosystem’s LEDs will allow you to grow your favorite aromatics all year round.

This LED just to use the right light spectrum to activate the photosynthesis while providing a reduction of up to 80% in energy consumption compared to a traditional growing light. For more information check our provider detailed description.

The lights can also be vertically adjusted to the height of your plants to maximize their growing efficiency.
