CO2 probes are expensive; do you plan to purchase one?
Salinity is not really needed in a planted aquarium. But they are also BNC.
Temperature is just with the DS18B20 from Dallas. You can put it into a waterproof container and it will work fine.

6x6 inches is quite large; I assume you want it to be touch screen too? It will be quite expensive.

To get an idea, the iPad measures 9 x 7 inches.
