The Aquaponics Mini is a personal project that explores rapid prototyping technologies in relation to aquaponics systems. The design was modelled in CAD and 3D printed in ABS. The viewing panels are laser cut from frosted acrylic sheets and mounted using silicone aquarium sealant. The result is a compact tank that houses a marimo moss ball (aegagropila linnaei) and cardinal plant (lobelia cardinalis) in a symbiotic environment.
