Give the kitchen sink two drains: one drain is for liquids, soap, and water that is sent to the sewer; the other drain feeds directly into a giant sea star, crab, snail, and sea cucumber habitat tank. Now toss in your leftovers and watch them feed.

||Why is a separate drain involved? Don't you just scrape the desirable parts directly from the cutting board or plate directly into the habitat tank?
||I've never owned a giant sea star, but that's what we used to do for my black lab, Star, except we called her habitat tank a dog dish.
||//Why is a separate drain involved?//
||To separate the clean, domestic kitchen envrionment from the filthy marine environment. Just as you wouldn't put a vermicomposting canister in your kitchen you wouldn't want a giant marine tank there either, if you are going to be dumping food garbage into it. The cold-water tank can be set behind the wall, such as in the garage. And you won't have to lift the tank's lid to put pour food in and mess with a bunch of critters who want to climb out to explore your house, getting water all over the floor. I suppose a single drain with a switch installed, to sort foodscrap from potentially harmful scrap, would also do the trick. Or more conveniently, a separate recepticle in the kitchen, specifically for food disposal.
