Hi, will introduce myself. I am peter a Dutch aquascaper, and I love nano tanks. I will regularly post updates of my nano tanks in this topic. Hope you can enjoy the tanks, will first start with the 19L tank.
The beginning of the 19L nano tank. (10-May-2012)
I have used old water from other tank, filter was already matured in other tank.
Few days after the planting, now it is up to the plants themselves.
24-June-2012 New diy led kap, 12 x 1w power leds, cheap china leds, 50 euro cent each. (50:50 - warm white:cool white)
Filter: JBL crystalprofi e900 (7.6L volume, 900L/h, not fully open of course)
light: diy led 12 x 1W power leds, 50:50 warm white:cool white.
Diy Aquarium controller( ph measurement, temperature measurement, wireless power socket(433Mhz), co2 controller, webserver, pc software through usb, ....)
Presure co2 500gr and inline Co2 diffuser.
Very nice. Your DIY controller sounds very interesting. Are you able to remotely monitor your aquarium?
Yes of course i can tell more about the controller. It is fully home made, from design to final. Will now post some pictures, and will later open a topic about the controller, if there is a need for it.
Cost of PCB, lcd and buttons are 25 euro, encloser was 3.29 euro. Total was just under 30 euro.
Front, old picture, firmware was not finished jet.
Couple PCB v1.0. In this picture you see the wireless socket, white plug on the right. they are quite cheap here in the Netherlands, 15 euro's for three plugs and remote.
Just an update of my nano tank, picture from yesterday.
