this “refrigerator-aquarium” is designed to produce food that you can eat. The bottom of the Local River fish tank contains freshwater fish, and the top has pods for growing veggies. The plants help filter the water for the fish, while the fish fertilize the water with their, uh, dookie. It’s a really cool idea.

Local River By Mathieu Lehanneur - Food doesn't get any more local than this. Designer Mathieu Lehanneur, known to TreeHuggers for his controversial Bell-Air , has now developed the ultimate kitchen appliance: Local River, a "refrigerator-aquarium" where you breed freshwater fish and vegetables at the same time. The veggies keep the water clean by removing nitrates and other minerals. Local River, home storage unit for fish and greens "The Locavores appeared in San Francisco in 2005 and define themselves as ‘a group of culinary adventurers who eat foods produced in a radius of 100 miles (160 km) around their city’. By doing so they aim to reduce impact on the environment inherent to the transport of foodstuffs, while ensuring their traceability. Local River anticipates the growing influence of this group (the word ‘locavore’ made its first appearance in an American dictionary in 2007) by proposing a home storage unit for live freshwater fish combined with a mini vegetable patch. This DIY fish-farm-cum-kitchen-garden is based on the principle of aquaponics coupled with the exchange and interdependence of two living organisms - plants and fish. The plants extract nutrients from the nitrate-rich dejecta of the fish. In doing so they act as a natural filter that purifies the water and maintains a vital balance for the eco-system in which the fish live. The same technique is used on large-scale pioneer aquaponics/fish-farms, which raise tilapia (a food fish from the Far East) and lettuce planted in trays floating on the surface of ponds."

Bicimáquinas are pedal-powered machines that assist with a variety of jobs in the home, on the farm, on the road and in small businesses. Each bicimáquina is handmade in our workshop using a combination of old bikes, concrete, wood, and metal. So far, we have developed several original designs that have proven to be both functional and economical. We have produced fact sheets and instructions for the more popular designs.

How cool! A fish tank merged with a pot plant. While visually pleasing a lot of people would be quick to point out that the actuality of this is improbable but the premis is rather delightful. Living in harmony with each other the fish basically poops out its eaten food which is essentially nutrients for the plant, and the water the plant receives gets filtered on its way to the fish. Magic.

Planter and Fishbowl - One Pot, Two Lives
This is a planter and a fish tank. You put your regularly potted plant in this pot on top, and a goldfish on the bottom. What could they provide for eachother, you might ask? Waste! Yes, the fishes turn their eaten bait remnants into nutrients for the plant, while the water fed to the plant is filtered as it passes though and becomes clean for the fish.
Small Glass Aquarium Tank and Planter, Eco Home Decor Ideas
It’s the yin and yang of plants and fish bowls. This incredibly clever idea is called One Pot – Two Lives. It’s a hybrid fish bowl and planter designed by Sheng-Zhe Feng and Ling-Yuan Chou. A regularly potted plant is placed on top and a goldfish lives underneath. This tit for tat relationship is comprised of the fish turning their eaten bait remnants into nutrients for the plant, which is then fed with water that filters and passes through, becoming clean for the fish. Materials are cycled and soil remains humid, so the watering period is extended by a week. That’s the natural cycle of life in action for you!

This aquaponic setup, called Malthus, was designed by Conceptual Devices as an indoor kitchen garden concept that will grow approximately one meal a day – a fish and side salad – once the fish and produce are mature. The finished setup is is about the size of 2 small refrigerators and the parts to build it can be found at most home improvement stores.
Would make a nice kitchen garden without the fish. By the way, this fish tank has no plants or places to hide for the fish. I don't think stressed fish make for a good food source.

20 foot urban farm project - a high-yield greenhouse on top of an old shipping box. Environmentally friendly and energy efficient - uses fish tanks to produce fertilizer and cycles water through. Can be placed on the street or in parking lots for sustainable urban gardening that is hard to raid. Blueprints are free and downloadable from the site.

Local River Plant Aquarium: French designer Mathieu Lehanneur's "refrigerator-aquarium" called Local River has freshwater fish, with vegetables growing in glass domes, and that helps to purify the water.
River Plant Aquarium by Mathieu Lehanneur - This version of hydroponics uses a refrigerated aquarium as a hatchery for freshwater fish, while vegetables grow on top in glass pods. The vegetables use the water from the fish tank, extract nutrients, filtering and purifying the water for the fish to reuse and develop. - Cool but the water snakes are seriously creepy
art or design... beautiful though #MathieuLehanneur
