Oh, choices, choices… do you grow vegetables, raise worms or raise fish? Well, the just-released Fishy Farm is designed to do all three in one hit. The small-scale aquaponic set-up is based around an ecosystem in which fish-waste-infused water fertilizes the veggies and feeds the worms, which in turn filter the water before it returns to the fish. All that users need to do is feed the fish, top up the water, and gobble up the bounty… except for the worms.
The system starts with the fish, who live in an aquarium at the bottom of the system. Although the supplied photos show not-likely-to-be-eaten goldfish and koi, the company suggests that food fish such as tilapia, perch, catfish or rainbow trout could also be kept in there.
The ammonia and effluent-containing water is pumped up to the plant grow bed, at the top of the system.

Swedish company, Soltech Energy, recently received the gold medal for this year’s hottest new material at the Nordbygg 2010 trade fair in Stockholm, Sweden.

The tiles, which are made from ordinary glass, weigh about the same as the clay roof tiles they replace but allow the sun to heat air that is then used to heat the house and cut energy bills.
