Something like this (though this is an old photo; I've cleaned up the wiring, added a few components and switched to the TFT LCD Touchscreen)

as I was working I was thinking about this, on how people would plug in a probe etc to monitor/control their PH, co2, salinity, temp etc.

my other concern was how small the screen is I was hoping to have a screen at least 6x6 inches so it could be easily seen from a distance. Maybe something we could look into?

Dark PM me to please I have an idea I want to run by you that is kinda off topic.
