This floating mini-gardens were created by the French designer Benjamin Graindorge and thought of as a natural filter system. Most of the work was taken from a plant that purifies water.

The mini design floating garden was created by Benjamin Graindorge in collaboration with Duende Studio. The garden consists of several species of plants that purify water and a cushion of sand. The filter garden operates under the principles of hydroponics and recycling. In this way you will keep the aquarium maintenance to a minimum. Anything you can do, the glass walls of the aquarium is to occasionally clean with a sponge and feed fish regularly.

The mini-garden by Benjamin Graindorge based on two simple principles that drive the cleaning process goes smoothly. The first technique is based on the carpet of sand. A 5 cm thick layer of sand filters the water tank. When it comes to small particles in the water that are useful for a friendly bacterial environment remains. The bacteria convert nitrogen into nitrates already developed. The second technology is based on the aquaponics system. The nitrate rich water is separated from the sand flowing downwardly. You will find the root of the plant. This root out all nitrate water to feed then. The rest of the water is very clean and flows back into the aquarium.
