Imagine sitting at your desk or cubicle and seeing life around you. Most work spaces are dull and boring. They do not even have a plant to add some color.
With the innovative EcoQube, you get the joy of a stunning desktop aquarium and plants all in one convenient aquatic ecosystem.
The easy to maintain system makes it the ideal solution for work and home.
A Welcome Compact Distraction
Staring at a computer screen all day is mind numbing.
The compact EcoQube is small enough to fit on your desk and offers a welcome distraction from the daily monotony.
Giving your mind a small break to stare at the peaceful aquatic world helps you relax and refocus so you work better.
You get the benefits of a potted plant and fish without taking up too much space.
Reconnecting With The Environment
The beautiful, yet simple desktop aquarium uses aquaponics to maintain the tank and grow plants at the same time.
The food production method is used to grow fish and food together while using less space. Food grows up to 50% faster and uses 90% less water.
Many people avoid aquariums because they are difficult to care for. Algae builds up and requires you to chase fish around, transferring to a spare tank so you can clean the main tank.
It is time consuming and messy.
The EcoQube is different.
It uses a self-sustaining cycle that drastically reduces the amount of work it takes to maintain.
The aquarium works in a constant three step cycle:
1.Fish eat and leave behind ammonia-rich waste. Ammonia is then broken down into nitrates by bacteria in the water.
2.A plant medium filters the water. The plant takes in nutritious nitrates for growth.
3.Clean water is returned to the aquarium.
The main tasks you will be responsible for are feeding your fish and maintaining the water level. These two tasks only take a few minutes at most.
The tank itself is made up of four simple components:
1.The LED light sits above the plant to provide the necessary light the plant needs to grow. It also lights up the aquarium.
2.An LED UV sterilizer light aids in the removal of bacteria in the tank from over feeding fish or from introducing new fish.
3.The aquaponics filter sits directly below the plant and filters water between the plant and tank.
4.The final components are the aquarium and its base.
The overall design is simple, yet innovative.
The filter is designed to never need replacing. The small two inch filter pumps 100 gallons per hour. This keeps water fresh.
Combined with the UV LED, water remains clear and algae free. With very little maintenance, the tank stays clean and fish happy.
Aqua Design Innovations recommends using either basil or mint for your plant. During testing, these two plants worked best.
No Cleaning, No Replacements
With proper care, the EcoCube should never need cleaning or even have the filter replaced. It has been designed for lifetime use.
It is the ideal solution for anyone wanting an easy to care for aquarium that is also good for the environment. Even kids could maintain the aquarium easily.
Everything you need to start your own EcoCube and maintain it are available from ADI (see below). Use the tank to add life to bland work spaces or dark corners of your home.
You will love watching fish play in a more natural environment, especially when the tank is not clouded with algae and you do no have to clean it.
Think of the EcoCube as an affordable way to bring a small part of nature into your cubicle, office or home.
NutriDiet® Chlorella Flakes is a fortified Chlorella flake food for all freshwater and marine fish. Chlorella Algae is considered to be a potential super food and is included in every NutriDiet® Flake formula for its extremely high nutrient content. It is overflowing with enzymes, minerals, vitamins, amino acids, and all other nutrients essential to animal life. As a dietary supplement and base diet for herbivores, it is far superior to the Spirulina algae used in many flake foods. NutriDiet Chlorella contains GarlicGuard™, which, in addition to being an appetite enhancer, is a natural antiparasitic and antibacterial product that can enhance overall fish health.
Chlorella Flakes also contain high levels of Vitamin C, a cofactor in the processes necessary for the formation of connective tissue, scar tissue in wound repair, and bone matrix. Vitamin C is difficult for fish to acquire in a natural diet but is critical in addressing healing and growth issues in many fish.
Chlorella Flakes also contain probiotics which allow for more rapid and simplistic digestion of the partner nutrients. Less energy is required by the fish to digest the food. The food is more completely digested allowing for less waste production in the aquarium. This also allows for more nutrient uptake and increased immune function. Lastly, patent pending compounds complete the formulation to enhance immune function further as well as extend life potential, promote natural growth, and enhance the color of fish.
NutriDiet® Betta contains only the highest quality ingredients (Chlorella algae & fish meal) without low nutritional value ﬁllers (e.g. corn meal). It contains a broad spectrum of all the important components needed in a Betta’s diet: protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. NutriDiet® Betta is different from other foods on the market because of its high nutritional value and palatability. NutriDiet® Betta also contains probiotics, which reduce waste, benefit nutrient uptake and the immune system.
SEACHEM Zeolite is a naturally occurring, highly-porous mineral that binds ammonia and heavy metals through an ion exchange mechanism. It has the highest ammonia binding capacity of any available zeolite; ten times higher than some products and twice the capacity of the closest competitor. It won't deplete calcium in the seawater, and it won't increase general hardness in freshwater, where the ionic strength is low.
For marine and freshwater
Vibrant Sea™ is a highly concentrated blend of salts formulated for marine and reef aquariums that contains all essential major, minor, and trace components found in natural seawaters, plus the added advantage of enhanced potassium levels. Its formulation is ideal for the reef environment and will provide accurate seawater concentrations of magnesium, calcium, and strontium with proper alkalinity and pH for closed reef aquarium systems.
Vibrant Sea™ is an anhydrous salt, which allows for unparalleled uniformity from batch to batch as well as the ability to produce more saltwater from less salt. In addition, it is highly soluble and can mixed and used in the same day.
