What is the Aquarium Garden Kit?
The Aquarium Garden kit is our new product that has been developed after getting feedback from aquarium and aquaponics fans about our previous prototype, the Aquaponics Garden. The new Aquarium Garden converts any aquarium into a garden that can grow plants, herbs and greens and can also grow aquatic plants at different levels in the fish tank as a vertical garden.
- Convert your aquarium into a garden!
- Create vertical gardens inside your aquarium
- Grow herbs, greens, flowers and house plants in any fish tank
- Hassle free food growing – the fish waste fertilizes the plants
- No more dead plants, because the plants are constantly being watered!
- Self cleaning fish tank using our patent pending AquaBiofilter technology
With your help Ecoplan will raise $20,000 in pledges to make our injection molds, pay manufacturing, logistics, Indiegogo & PayPal costs and deliver the first units to you, our supporters.
We also built floating aquaponic wetlands for the Malaysia River of Life USD $1 billion program to clean up the capital city’s waterways and marine environment.
Aquarium Garden – minuturizing a proven technology
After building the worlds largest aquaponics system, I wanted to do something different, bring this technology to the home and school scale to provide a fun and educational experience for the community and especially kids who dont have access to a garden. So I thought – let’s miniaturise it, down into a kitchen, tabletop or window system.
The best thing about it its natural! Yet it doesn’t require soil, and there are no chemical fertilizers or herbicides. The plants are growing in our unique AquaBiofilter™ media and all the fertilizer and nutrients are coming from the fish. And you don’t have to clean the water. Add a water snail to clean any algae, and it’s a completely self-cleaning tank, self-fertilizing and plants are always being watered. No more dead plants in your house!
We’ve got to bring back local food growing, and it can all start at home, school or the office, with the Aquarium Garden.

Our track record
We have built aquaponics systems all around the world for over a decade, with many happy customers in Local and State Governments, private landholders and for enterprises seeking a point of difference for their water and landscapes. We have presented our scientific research at water quality conferences around the world and been published by the International Water Association and been reviewed by our peers. We stand behind our products and are proud of our work for over a decade in the sustainable water and food sector.
Our products have restored the ecosystem health of lakes, rivers and marine environments that receive run-off from Sydney Harbour to China’s largest aquaculture lake. Communities across south east Asia have found new purpose and resolve to tackle sustainable food production and beat malnourishment with our training programs in permaculture, integrated farming and water management.
This new step for us is a continuation of our biofiltration technology, the AquaBiofilter, miniturizing it down into the Aquarium Garden. We know you will love it and that it feels good being part of our mission to tackle malnourishment at the root.
Risks & Challenges
As engineers and scientists we have developed a comprehensive quality management system and framework to deliver products globally on time, everytime. Our clients include many Government agencies aground the world, who demand a high level of technical capability. We are experienced manufacturers and product providers, with skills and capabilities that ensure our products will be delivered to customers on time. Manufacturing, fulfillment and product tracking has been established with service providers and is ready for the Aquarium Gardens to be sent out at the end of the campaign. Shipping risks do exist, but a lot of research and real world testing of providers has established reliable partnerships. We already ship our products around the world, entire shipping containers full of aquaponics systems, floating wetlands and floating islands.
If we do not reach our goal of $20,000 we will still deliver an Aquarium Garden to each contributor. We can economize on costs by reducing the number of molds and do batch manufacturing instead of continous from a mold. We are ready for all outcomes and will ship an Aquarium Garden to you.
