    The fish are far too small to eat… Although I am hoping it is using the tank water as water for plants as the fish poo will also act as fertilizer.

    @Tim, it holds up to 2kg of fish and yes, it uses the water and fertilizer for plants.

    Maybe read the article?

    The fish aren’t for eating actually. Their waste provides nutrients for the plants. If you’re interested, the process is called aquaponics.
