Help the Fidgits grow food! Set up an aquaponics farming system, which use water fertilized by fish poop to grow plants. The plants use the poop to grow, cleaning out the water in the process. Grow enough plants to keep the Fidgit Farmstand well stocked.
Design and build a aquaponic farm system with fish, pipes, and plants.
Grow up to 10 different species of plants.
Introduce children to aquaponics farming, an eco-friendly way to grow crops.

How to Play
Help the Fidgits build a aquaponics farming system.
Starting the Game
On the welcome screen, select the play button below the game’s title to begin.
The game begins with a cutscene explaining the premise of the game.
Your web browser automatically saves your game progress.
With your mouse, left click to select and navigate.
Select and navigate by tapping on the screen with your fingers.
Choose a plant from the Fidgit’s Farmstand to grow. Each plant represents a level.
Plants are unlocked in a sequence.
At the start of the game, you can only grow mint plants.
Growing mint serves as your tutorial to the way the game works.
You can replay any of the levels you’ve unlocked.
The following plants are growable:
Building the System
Place fish in the tank.
Grow as many plants as you need to meet the level’s quota.
Set up a system of pipes to grow the plants you need.
Turn the system on and feed the fish.
Harvest the plants once they’re big enough.
The pipes and fish are available on the left side of the screen.
The section with the pipes can scroll up and down. You’ve a lot of pipes to work with.
Right below the pipes is a section dedicated to fish.
The aquaponic system occupies a grid on the right side of the screen.
If you want to remove something, select and drag it back to the left side of the screen away from the grid.
Make sure everything is connected to the pipes that lead to the fish tank.
You don’t need to make anything too fancy unless you want to finish the level really fast.
Laying just enough plants to span the two pipes is enough.
Keep the system balanced. Don’t put too many fish in the fish tank.
Feeding the Fidgits
With your mouse or fingers, move the Fidgit around to catch all the vegetables that fall.
Eat as many of the vegetables as you can.
The number of vegetables that fall is equal to the amount you grew in the level.
Growing plants in water
The system shown in this game is based on the real-world technology called aquaponics. This is itself based on hydroponics, a system that lets farmers grow plants without any soil.
Aquaponics uses a system of pipes to grow plants and raise fish at the same time.
Fish are kept in a tank, where they are fed and taken care off.
The poop sinks down and is taken away from their tank into the pipes.
The pipes flow through the plants. The poop acts as all-natural fertilizer, providing nutrition for the plants.
The plants remove the poop in the water, acting as a filter.
People can eat both the plants and the fish. An aquaponic farm can make more food than a regular farm of the same size.
Using plants as filters is an excellent way to clean water. People who keep pet fish find that growing a lot of plants (be they houseplants, aquatic plants, or seaweed) in their aquariums is a great way to deal with fish poop.
