The Microfarm is an innovative gardening tool that is placed on top of a standard 10-gallon aquarium to turn it into an indoor garden that fits perfectly with any home style. The fish and plants work in harmony to make the garden very low maintenance and easy to use. The kit comes with organic basil and oregano seeds, but many other greens can be grown as well. A light is included so you can grow any time of the year by just planting seeds and feeding your fish.

Top Customer Reviews
1.) Once an automatic fish feeder was installed (link provided below) the growing process is completely effortless.
2.) It is extremely well designed and the system has required NO additional maintenance after the initial installation.
3.) Unlike similar products on the market, this mircofarm included a much needed starter kit for water treatment. I live in a city where the water is heavily treated and the ph equalizer, along with the DChlor, have been greatly appreciated...by my fish that is.

Let's face it: every parent has tried to maintain a fish tank at some point. I shudder to think how many tetras have been sacrificed to the gods of bad water chemistry and neglect. The Microfarm makes useful the 10 gallon fish tank buried in your garage - you know you have one. It's quick and easy to set up, and virtually foolproof. You do need to go to a pet store for some gravel for the fish tank (and some fish), but everything else is included. We went with subtle blue gravel with some marbles, and a couple of lovely fake bonsai plants for the residents to swim around. We added goldfish because they are particularly adaptable to changing water temperatures, so we did not need to worry about heating the water. Germinate the included seeds, add water, and let nature take its course.
Every plant we have tried in the top grow bed has succeeded (lettuce, basil, parsley, cat grass) and the goldfish are robust and happy. (Our are Les Goldfish - after the movie producer from Tropic Thunder - and Nikolay Goldobfish - after a future San Jose Sharks hockey player). The Microfarm has been working flawlessly for 18 months - clean water, growing plants, happy fish. It is a great conversation piece, as well a great example of bringing nature inside.
The symbiotic relationship between the fish below and the plants above hints at a solution for all of our problems: making our neighbor stronger makes us stronger, and provides a path to long-term fulfillment. The Microfarm puts this revelation in front of you daily, and you can literally eat the fruits of your positive energy. Five stars.
