Got some new toys for automating my tank. I'm going to add another 4 pin connector to my DIY controller and plug in the two peristaltic pumps as separate unit. This way I can make the cable as long as I want, and mount it directly above some liquid fert jugs.

I used an off the shelf 12V @ 2A power supply since it was much smaller than the ATX and could fit nicely in a custom enclosure.

I'm using a couple of MOSFETs for a dimmable driver that controls my RGB (red green blue) LED strip that I bought off [Ebay Link Removed] As for a dimmable light driver for growing plants, I'm using the standard RapidLED dimmable driver. I don't like reinventing the wheel, unless it saves me a bunch of money.

I have been getting a lot of requests for BOMs and schematics. Everything I have found was found off the internet and just tweaked to work a little better, so I have no problem posting it on this forum. I also want to post a video of my day to night cycle over the course of a couple minutes. Just give me a day or two to get everything together.
