 Main Features and Benefits:

  • Patented 2-Gallon Aquarium Cleans Itself!... simply pour in clean water and dirty water flows out! It's so easy a child can do it!
  • Hassle & Stress Free for You and Your Fish! Other desktop aquariums force you to remove the fish, stones, plants and decorations before cleaning. This is a messy hassle for you and stressful and traumatic for your fish! With NoClean Aquariums your fish, plants, rocks and decorations all stay put during cleaning... and you stay clean and dry. 
  • Eco-Friendly & Wallet-Friendly! No noisy pumps that can leak or break. No expensive replacement filters. No electricity use. No annoying cords to get in the way. Waste water collects for easy disposal or recycling as fertilizer for plants!
  • Display it Anywhere! GravityFlow2 is a fun, functional work of living art and stunning conversation piece wherever you display it. It’s smart, cordless design allows it to go where other aquariums can’t.  Customize your bowl with a gold or silver spout.

Aquariums are fun to watch, great for kids and make an awe-inspiring addition to any room. The only problem is the cleaning – yuck! Talk about a messy, smelly, time-consuming chore! 

A few short years ago we set out to solve this problem right here on Kickstarter by inventing the worlds first self-cleaning aquarium. Thanks to you, it was a big success!

After raising funds we won a 1st Place Award at Global Pet Expo, North America’s largest pet trade show, were featured on DIY Network's "I Want That!" and Fox & Friends.

We even collaborated with a manufacturing and distribution powerhouse to create My Fun Fish which is on TV and in major retailers everywhere!

Now we’re back to ask for your support for our newest 2-gallon aquarium: GravityFlow2™ Self-Cleaning Fish Bowl. Like the original, its super quick and easy to clean, just with a larger, classic form factor.

How GravityFlow Works:

Footage from original Kickstarter launch

Dirt sinks through the rocks and gets trapped in the patented cleaning system built into the bottom of the bowl. This keeps your fish out of harms way and water crystal clear. When it’s time for a cleaning simply pour fresh water in and the dirty water flows out. It doesn't get easier than this! 

GravityFlow2 automatically shuts-off when the job is done - ensuring no spills, drips or messes. You can even recycle the waste-water to nourish your plants!

Eco-Friendly & Wallet-Friendly

GravtyFlow2 runs on GravityClean™ technology, which as you might have guessed, happens to work on the principal of… Gravity! This has a number of advantages over old-fashioned electric filters and pumps, including:

  • NO Noise
  • NO Cords 
  • NO Wet Hands
  • NO Electricity Usage 
  • NO Mechanical Parts to Break
  • NO Replacement Filters to Buy & Trash
  • NO Hassels or Headaches!

Safer for Fish!

Most fish bowls force you to remove rocks, plants, decorations and fish before a cleaning. This means work for you and stress for your fish. After all, can you imagine being chased around with a net and snatched from your home?!?!

GravityClean™ technology cleans your aquarium fully intact and your fish remains happily in its habitat. You'll be done in a snap and won’t even get your hands wet!

Beautiful Conversation Piece!

GravityFlow2 is a fun, functional work of living art and a stunning conversation piece wherever you choose to showcase it. Its smart, cordless design goes where other aquariums can't. Make a visual impression almost anywhere in your home, office or dorm room! Design options are virtually unlimited.

We Need Your Support!

Inventors David Turover (left) and Craig Wenger are counting on your support to get production rolling!

Bringing any new product to life is an expensive endeavor. This is especially true for GravityFlow2 because our product has multiple parts. This means we need to buy separate molds for each part. On top of that, each part has high minimum order quantities - which ties up a lot of capital unless a portion of that inventory has been "pre-sold". Without your support, we simply would not have the resources to get the production line rolling. So please pledge early and share this with your circle so we can start production right way!

Risks and challenges

Challenges are to be expected when putting any new product into production. We promise to keep you informed of any hiccups and how we will overcome them.

We've found the best way to run a successful project is to have everything well planned from the start - from the biggest details to the smallest ones. Even things like product packing, if not well thought out in advance, can mean big problems and delays. Because we've successfully completed a similar project in the past, we know what to expect and have contingency plans should issues pop up.

Since our first campaign we’ve been fortunate to meet some talented people & suppliers who are excited to start production on GravityFlow2. Our suppliers are well established and production molds are designed and ready to be formed. If one of our suppliers doesn't come through for any reason - we have backups. Switching suppliers might take a bit more time and will certainly be a hassle for us... but we have the resources and fortitude to accomplish the task.

We anticipate tooling to take 6-8 weeks and then production and assembly to take another 6-8 weeks. WE WILL START PRODUCTION ON THE MOLD AS SOON AS WE HIT THE 25,000 MARK (hopefully before the project ends). This means the sooner we hit our goal the sooner your rewards are delivered! So please pledge early and share this with your circle so we can start production right way!

Thank you for your support!
