I'd love to get started on this to eventually control the lights and co2 of a 125g. I've heard of the arduino and knew it was being used for fun stuff like this. I'm a web developer by trade, so this hardware stuff is quite confusing to me, but i can definitely dig into the code.
If you're new to arduino, I suggest playing with simple stuff first like making LED blink and such just to get yourself acquainted. Buy a starter kit like here

It's too much and confusing if you jump right in.
If you want to get acquainted with the coding check here
