It’s Shark Week, dontchaknow.
So, naturally, our thoughts turn toward the magical undersea world where mermaids sing, Aquaman works out his sexy, scaly bulges and razor-fanged creatures rip humans to shreds in blood orgies of terrifying mass destruction.
It also gets us reminiscent about simpler childhood days when fish were our favorite pets. Sure, they always died way too quickly because we overfed them or forgot to feed them or perhaps fed them Pop Rocks to see what would happen, but still.
The only thing we kill faster are plants. So it’s quite possible that the Aquafarm from Back to the Roots might just be the perfect solution.
This imaginative gizmo is half indoor garden, half underwater habitat. Or more simply put, a fish tank that grows food. The process is quite amazing: The fish waste feeds the plants and the plants clean the water.
Whoa. The Circle of Life is freaking us out.
Plant just about anything, from herbs to vegetables to cacti, and watch them grow like (sea)weeds.
Your new fishy friend gets delightfully clean water and you get a bounty of green goodness just waiting to be turned into a delectable meal.
