Avo: Self-Cleaning Fish Tank
Meet Avo, a fish tank that naturally cleans its own water. Susan Shelley, owner of Noux, a “design house” of pet products and accessories, launched Avo with a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2014. Avo’s natural filter takes harmful ammonia from fish waste and turns it into nitrate, which fertilizes the environment’s plants and keeps the water clean. The fish tank also has an innovative moving bed filter, which makes it difficult for typical aquarium gunk to build up. In fact, the water never needs changing and creates its own sustainable ecosystem. Avo makes planting easy with 7 designated plant pots surrounding its centrally located filter. The pots can be easily removed for plant trimming or to change existing plants. Noux offers a Plant Finder that offers helpful suggestions about plant types based on lighting, temperature, and visual effect. Avo holds up to 15 litres of water, making it an ideal aquarium for Siamese Fighting Fish, otherwise known as Betta Fish. However, Noux’s Fish Finder can recommend other small species that will thrive in your customized aquarium. Avo’s plant specific LED lighting is designed to prevent algae growth while ensuring your plants continue to thrive and cleanse the water. The light will appear in three soft colours to signal different periods of daylight, while providing key conditions for photosynthesis and plant growth. The fish tank’s heat source is hidden nicely out of sight underneath the plant beds and the elements create convection currents that drive nutrients into the roots of the plants. Avo will stay at a temperature of 27°C (80.6°F) at all times; complete with specialized lighting, it can house most tropical fish. Inspired by modern architecture and high fashion, Avo was designed as a feature piece for any room in your home.
