I am thinking to build a new controller for my other tank, and not sure yet which direction to go.
I did myself an iAqua
, from scratch. I am very happy with it. Did some changes in the code (like three pumps, different scheduling, etc) - you can find it somewhere in that thread. Pic of the two boxes below. It was very rewarding experience, thanks to the members of this forum.
A safe bet would be to do it again, but maybe something else, more challenging? Maybe based on Raspberry Pi?
I was wandering, what controllers for planted tanks (or tanks in general) are actually worth building and more importantly are doable. By doable I mean you built it to the end, it has decent documentation, and it has step-by-step guide available on net similar to iAqua. Please share your take on this: link, pros and cons, maybe some pictures of your built.
PS: at some point, when i was building iAqua (2015) i remember we had a thread on a controller, arduino based, with larger screens. I think it got banned or something. Did somebody actually built that project, and maybe can share the docs and the code?
