I'm sure this will be torn apart very quickly here but it looks like a good idea for the office or somewhere where a huge amount of work isn't possible

Looks like an interesting idea but surely fluidised bed filters eventually need to be cleaned out?

Seems like a good sales pitch. using plants to absorb nitrate is hardly new. May work on a micro tank with lots of plants and small fish population.

It doesn't seem scientifically sound to me, free lunches and all that.

95 grand before you can get a cat proof lid? What's wrong with the simple lids most tanks use!

And the pics of the creator are with dogs and rabbits and surprisingly no fish!

Cos it's a bugger to try and get fish to pose :lol:

Ha ha I suppose your right!

I'm glad it's not labeled as a gold fish bowl anyway.
