Avo: Innovative Self-cleaning Fish Tank
Fish keeping isn’t as easy most people think. Of course, you can buy those super expensive and big fish tank with everything automated. But if you just want a small tank for few fishes, most likely you will deal with things like water change, filter cleaning manually. After extensive research, British designer Suzy Shelley has just launched the only fish tank “Avo” that never needs water changing or a filter cleaning.
15-litre fish tank Avo is packed full of innovative technology, enabling fish, plants and bacteria work together to create a balanced micro-ecosystem. The design is so effective. In fact, the prototype has been going strong for 18 months without a cleaning and still has healthy fish, plants and clear, clean water! Moreover, its automatic lighting system emit plant specific light, providing the wavelengths that the plants need to photosynthesise and grow, making sure they are cleaning the water efficiently. The heating is taken care of too, a temperature of 27°C (80.6°F) is automatically maintained. This is the perfect temperature for most tropical fish. Last but not least, there are 7 individual pots for plants that slot neatly into place around the filter system. This makes it really easy to care for the plants, they can be lifted out for trimming or easily rearranged to change the look of the tank.
