The Equipment

Tanks and heaters and filters and lights. These are the things that make it possible to have a small slice of nature in our homes. It allows us to see animals and plants that we would most likely never see in nature.

This is what we will look into in this article.

The plan is to work on some interesting Solutions for some of the things that make keeping fish a chore. Sometimes we are not around but the tanks still need maintenance.

The list of things I would like toautomate includes.

  • Automating Water Changes (especially for many tanks)
  • Automating Lighting (for all the tanks)
  • Automating Feeding
  • Streaming the tank via webcam

Then there is monitoring.

  • Temperature is quite easy
  • pH and other chemical tests are a bit expensive to do
