Yes to this. My main containers are great, but too big to hang on the side of the tank. And yes, micros, in particular, mold easily. Micros in particular need to be refrigerated unless you're only...

Yup. And I stole (I mean borrowed) his design. :) Nice glass cylinders in the perfect size to hold 2 weeks of ferts at 10 ml/day, with a perfect rim to slot nicely into a round hole without falling...

The OP lists it as Zoomed 501. I was going to guess either that or the Finnex PX360.

Not bad! What kind is it, and what did you pay for it, if you don't mind me asking? Always keeping an eye out for good stuff when I'm ready to make Rev2. ;)

Sorry I missed you!

And yes, I got a nice bunch of Anubias Petite. :) You can see it in the full tank photo a few posts back, nestled in the crook of the wood piece.

Thanks. I'll shop around for another card.

iAqua: My Touch Interface Aquarium Controller (Arduino)

I believe everything stays as long as it's powered up. It's initialization that seems to be hit and miss, as you surmised.

The card reader is on the LCD itself, not the TFT Shield. That's why I...

iAqua: My Touch Interface Aquarium Controller (Arduino)

The old 32mb (yes, mb) card I had was too slow. Switching to this 2gb card (at least 5 years old, possibly as many as 8?) solved the issues the first time around. Now they seem to be back. The SD...

New ElecFreaks TFT sheild came in yesterday, and last night I was able to modify it to add the 5 jumper lines relocating pins 2-6 to 42-46. That was a pain! But Woohoo! The touch...

It's an Arduino shield. They just stack right on top of the Arduino, and the "legs" on the bottom of the shield align perfectly with, and slide directly into, the headers on the Arduino itself.

Any phone charger where you put a USB connector into the charger is going to be USB standard 5v, which is exactly what you need.

The LCD screen isn't strictly necessary, but it makes life a LOT easier. I think it's possible to do it without the RTC, too, but if you ever lose power (or unplug it for a moment) you have to reset...

Well, I'm using your board, so 12v (on your board) goes to VCC on the relay, and GND goes to GND, and 1 to 8 goes to 1 to 8. :)

(or rather, 1 - 8 goes to the individual labeled device slots)
