i'll have months to go between the basement being done and the tank being ready to be set up... i really want to start picking up parts to jump in on this goodness!
can anyone recommend sites to read?
anyone having a shopping list w/ links for parts that'll accomplish all these tasks?
This thread is a good start; there are some others on these forums.
If you Google Jarduino, you will also find some more information regarding that project. Older versions of the source code are open source, so you can build from there. There also is a list of some of the items that were used for that particular project, so you can see what was used, and then expand from there.
