Cleaning is never fun…unless you have OCD or are a neat freak. For those who are a bit on the lazy side comes the self-cleaning Aqua Farm from Oakland-based  Nikhil & Alejandro (who brought you the Mushroom Garden). The self-cleaning aquaponics garden and aquarium is a closed loop eco-system that’s 100% self sustainable so you really don’t have to do anything (except feed the fish).

This means you don’t have to go out and get soil or chemical fertilizers since the waste from the fish will automatically fertilize the plants and then they in turn clean the water of the aquarium. It’s a great deal if you think about it! Aqua Farm allows you to grow various foods like organic beans, basil, baby greens and more. The project was actually a successful Kickstarter campaign and can now be bought via Amazon for $64.95. It includes everything you need to get started and even comes with organic seeds and a discount coupon for a Betta fish. It features a sleek and atrractive design with a three-gallon aquarium. It’ll will make a great gift for any lazy person in  your life and is perfect for your kitchen.
