In this experiment I have use a hydro culture plant. The plant will purify the air that we breath. It is to be possible to use a 'normal' plant or even a plant that you can eat (e.g. mint or basilicum). Just wash away all the earth and clean the roots of the plant. This will cost only a few euro's.

Materials and methods

- 2 fantail goldfish
- Mini oxidator: oxygen for aquarium (15 euro's)
- Aquarium Airpump: I bought the TetraTec APS 400 with a high capacity. It is quit and powerfull enough to lift the water from the fish to the plant.. Price: 45 euro's at
- hydro culture plant. I bought the plant for 16 euro including VAT at
- Tetra GoldFish holiday. Vacation feeder for goldfish during holiday
- The natural feeding behavior of fantail goldfish is to scavenge for food all day and eat whatever he comes across.
