    Hi there! I just saw your response now. Could you verify that the "39€" is the same as the "Por 57 $ o más"?

    I have been excitedly awaiting the blueprints since July!!! I can't wait to start eating home grown food courtesy of pet fish :)

    Good morning Ginnygin,

    Hope this find you well. What was the perk that you wanted to back up ? Looking at the list of contributors I've seen you under " Virginia Ford-Roy" for a 39€ contribution. Is that correct ? In that case the process worked correctly :) Thanks a million for believing in our project.

    $Have a good day. Guillaume from Aquapioneers team

    The contributing process on Ulule was in Spanish and I used Google Translate. It was only after I (believe I) made the payment that I saw I could switch languages on that page. Let's hope I didn't make a mistake! If it didn't work out, would you be able to still take my payment after it closes?

    Hola buen día:

    Muchas felicidades por su proyecto...

    Me parece muy importante que este tipo de muebles sea una fuente autosustentable y de desarrollo de convivencia con la naturaleza

    Les deseo lo mejor..

    Hi Aleravanetti,

    Thanks a million for your feedback ! Based on Barcelona data, the cost of 1 piece of Pine of 2,5 x 1,25 m x 18mm + Machine time + Human time to Waterproof the wooden pieces + Sanding the pieces is around 170€.

    On top of that, you will need to add :
    - 25€ for plumbing part (PVC pipes, elbows, EPDM, etc)
    - 160€ for Elec part (70W LED light, water proof electric box, timer, others cables)
    - 80 € for Aquarium part ( 50L aquarium + water pump + air pum)
    - 70€ for accessories (i.e. 40L of cay pebbles for the substrate in the media bed + 10 golden fish + fish food + Ammoniac / Nitrite / Nitrate / pH test)

    > More or less count around a total of 500€. Depending where you are living, I'm sure you can drop down the cost to 400€ working on the LED / Wood / aquarium / machine € to cut the wood .

    Hope this can help you :)

    Hi guys,

    Congrats about this, amazing stuff, really :)

    Practically speaking how much it would roughly cost to print it in a Fab Lab?


  • Guillaume & LoicCreator

    Hi Genevieve. Thanks a million for these feedbacks ! We love it !

    Transparency is a world we want to explore since a long time, and we have found a digital carpentry in BCN that is willing to make it :)

    So imagine a transparent aquaponic kit with transparent fishes like Kryptopterus bicirrhis (

    So stay tuned :)

    Keep up the great work guys! Excited to get my files and the manual! Maybe we build one in Denver?? ;-)

    Bonjour Guillaume et Loic ,

    Votre projet est enthousiaste et merveilleux.Des suggestions,Comme nous sommes en mode transparence....Ma suggestion serait de le faire en plexiglas,plus leger et permet de connaitre les dessous de l' affaire !!!! des pointes de couleurs en plexiglass pour les attaches...Differentes tailles ,pour ecoles ou restaurants....
    It i a wunderfull project.I will suggest as the world want Transparence,translucide in politiques and work.I suggest to do them in plexiglass ,not to heavy ,some clolorplexi for the nobs,0,02 mm color and translucide so when you move you create dimensions.and with your colors lamps let people dreams..differents size for schools or restaurants....
