 Much like the screensaver that came with Windows XP, this project makes it look like a fish tank is in your computer monitor. Instead of screen-saving,​ this bad boy is planet-saving. ​ An old CRT monitor, a computer tower, and a number-5-plastic gardening trough went to good use rather than the landfill. ​ The Fish in the monitor produce waste that the plants in the tower consume, while filtering the water for the fish.  Everybody is happy, and the system should live in harmony. ​ The pump is Arduino-controlled,​ and the lighting is leds powered by the computer'​s power supply. Much like the screensaver that came with Windows XP, this project makes it look like a fish tank is in your computer monitor.
