Why do people optimize natural resources for human needs only?
How might one create good water for people and for fish?
The Fish and Us system proposes a solution to this second problem. It is a two species water fountain. It transforms compromised urban water into clean water and adds an additional
processing step. Depending on how one positions the mechanical valves, the system either adds trace minerals, which people enjoy, or it removes
additional chemicals, such as ammonium that goldfish do not like.
A solar powered mini-computer displays the service history of the machinery and tells the story of the gold fish it serves,
and of boys who love their goldfish.
