Because we’re all about sustainability in ShaoXing (…), we–aka Tony–decided to make an aquaponic system.

For those of you who have no idea what that is (probably most people), the simplest form of the system includes fish and plants. A pump picks up the fish feces from the bottom of the bin and brings it to the plants as nutrients.

Although we won’t be able to plant anything until after spring festival, we’re looking forward to growing some foods that are more difficult to come by here.
