So I’ve been reading up all about open source aquarium controllers and some of the projects people are putting together is amazing. I though I’d startup my own project which will do the basics and then I’ll add on modules as I get the time.
Its going to take while to do this project but its going to be very interesting.
I’d like to also complete a Arduino LED controller for the aquarium but I think that will be the next project.
For starters I’ve found these links which will be very helpful:
For starters I plan to use a Arduino Mega 2560 with a 3.2″ TFT Screen and DS1307 RTC.
pH measurements will be takes with a pH probe which you can get cheaply from eBay.
I’ll be using the pH amplifier from here:
Temperatures from DS18B20 sensors and salinity from a EC conductivity probe. I’m still looking for ways to impletement this as this looks like the trickiest part of the project.
First thing is first – need to order an Arduino Mega 2560
