  •  I have long thought of my aquarium (3+ / 0-)

    as a sewage treatment plant for fish excrement with fish living in it. I use a lot of the same techniques: aeration, chemical and biological (aerobic and anaerobic) digestion, sand filters, plants selected for their filtering properties, that are used in large scale water and sewage treatment plants.

    My worm farm is specifically designed to produce soil, umm worm castings, umm worm shit, to put on my garden, and it makes excellent fertilizer.

    In fact, without the water cycle, the nitrogen cycle, the carbon cycle, the rock cycle... all those natural recycling processes we live amidst, life as we know it wouldn't be possible on earth.  So it's a lot like my aquarium, on a macro scale.
