From the Manufacturer


What’s in the box?

•AquaSprouts Garden: Comes in a modern and black matte design, which is perfect for accommodating and matching with any decor, and is assembled easily with no tools required.

•Light Bar:A removable light bar to which you can affix any standard indoor grow light of your choice- ideal for places with insufficient natural light sources. You can simply adjust the light according to your plants' necessities.

•Pump & Timer: The kit includes a submersible 9.5 Watts / 120 V 160 gallons per hour pump. Along with a 24 hour timer that can be set for 15 minute intervals. Both the pump and timer include a 1-year warranty.

•Grow Media: Our special clay grow media replaces soil from traditional gardening and serves as the support for your plants in the grow-bed. They also provide a surface area for the bacteria to grow and convert the fish waste into nutrients for your plants. The grow media traps fish waste and uneaten fish food-- making the grow-bed a mechanical filter. (Grow media does not degrade)

•Resources & Support: Each kit comes with a detailed and step-by-step guide to setting up and maintaining your Garden. As well as that, our dedicated support team is just one email or phone call away if you have any questions or need assistance. We also provide live chat on our website.

Natural Aquarium

The Garden’s design is simple, freestanding, and virtually maintenance-free, making indoor gardening and a beautiful aquarium accessible to anyone regardless of experience with fish or plants. It eliminates the need for traditional fertilizers using the same principles that recycle wastes in natural ecosystems, making upkeep as simple as feeding your fish. We built the Garden to fit over any standard 10-gallon aquarium, including existing tanks, making it the perfect way to grow fresh herbs and vegetables or beautiful ornamentals anywhere.


Aquaponics involves breaking down toxic ammonia and turning it into nutritious plant food called nitrates using two types of nitrifying bacteria – nitrosomas and nitrospiras. When fish produce ammonia it attracts a type of bacteria called nitrosomas.

These guys and gals convert the ammonia into nitrites – a compound even more toxic than ammonia. Thankfully, however, nitrites attract another type of bacteria called nitrospiras who then convert the nitrites into nitrates – excellent food for plants, and mostly harmless to fish.

Once this has happened the aquaponic cycle is complete and, once stabilized, will ensure ammonia levels are kept at a minimum while providing maximum nutrition for the plants.


Transform Your Aquarium

The AquaSprouts Garden is designed to fit any standard 10-gallon aquarium - one of the most common and widely available aquariums - and provides a platform to grow a wide variety of plants. Its sleek, modern design also makes it a great conversation piece for any home’s décor.


About the Startup

Describe your product in 3 words.

Educational, Natural, Beautiful

How did you come up with the idea for this product?

Everyone on our team are makers, thinkers, hobbyists, and learners. We are personally dedicated to promoting aquaponics in a way that’s simple, hands-on, and aesthetic. We want AquaSprouts to be more than just a product; we want to provide a platform for you to explore aquaponics and see how its synthesis of natural science and technology can change the world.

What makes your product special?

We designed the AquaSprouts Garden to bring the revolutionary principles of aquaponic farming into the home, office, and classroom, because we believe aquaponics offers something to benefit everyone. By combining fishkeeping and hydroponic gardening, aquaponics does things that neither can do alone, dramatically reducing waste and maintenance. By circulating the water from your aquarium through the Garden’s bed, the AquaSprouts Garden recycles fish waste to provide vital nutrients for growing plants, leaving the water clean and clear without the need for additional filters or frequent water changes.

What has been the best part of your startup experience?

Spreading our passions for aquaponics! Our goal with the AquaSprouts Garden is not to feed you and your neighbors directly, but to feed minds and fuel curiosity. The Garden is a miniaturized, living lesson in sustainability in a world where the concept becomes more important every day. This belief in a better future is one reason we place an emphasis on bringing aquaponics and curriculum kits to classrooms around the globe.
