Open Aquarium - Aquaponics and Fish Tank Monitoring for Arduino

Open Aquarium - Aquaponics and Fish Tank Monitoring for Arduino | Aquaponics~Aquaculture~Fish~Food | Scoop.it
Open Aquarium has been designed to help you to take care of your fish by automating the control and maintenance tasks that take place in the fish tanks and ponds.

Via Jinbuhm Kim
Charlie Dare's insight:

Still waiting for Arduino monitoring I won but suspect they are amateur types that used me for free publicity~ Having skills is no recommendation if they have no ethics~ here are 5 sensors available in the platform to measure the key parameters in the fish tank such as temperature, pH or Conductivity and then some others to control the correct state of the fish tank (level and leakages). In addition, there are 4 different actuators to automate tasks such as heating or cooling the water, feeding the fish, activating the pumps for water change or medicines administration, and controlling the intensity of the light to simulate the day/night cycles.

Charlie Dare's insight:

Finding diurnal temperature swings between frosty nights and warm to hot days can kill fresh water crustaceans and better insulation necessary before more expensive monitoring but software is becoming more available and I need to trial before applying to larger commercial integrated systems ~

But even under the best conditions, even fish that are reared for aquaponics, at least 70% of newly hatched fish still die.
Charlie Dare's insight:

In my area most people buy from a certified disease free hatchery~ I had a council inspection for change of land use for an weather-board house and to breed fish in tanks was as much compliance extra costs as if it were a butcher shop including wheelchair access male female toilets and reinforced flooring, so much things and cost A small aquarium set up may be a better way to grow some Sleepy Cod replacements.Its not straight forward water levels need to be lowered warmish water temperatures to induce spawning injection of hormones sterilized beakers for mixing milt and  mature cover and wait 24-36 hours to examine for cell division in eggs..preparation of artemia or sea monkeys need slight bath in acidic warm water so baby fingerling's dont choke on shells of sea monkeys after hatching.. other green water production has a cross section of edible foods algae  but ponds fertilized have a much better cross section of larval fingerlings food source after they use up their egg sack after hatching~

▶ Affordable Hydroponic Monitoring from Your Smartphone: From Automated Biospheres to the OsmoBot - YouTube

OsmoBot Co-Founder and Chief Engineer, Paul Holowko, explains how his passion for systems engineering and micro biology merged in building his enclosed biosphere systems and how his innovations there led to the development of the OsmoBot.

The OsmoBot is a mobile hydroponic and aquaponic monitoring and control system. Every 15 minutes it uploads your system's latest pH, water temperature, water level, dissolved oxygen, air temperature, humidity, and light spectrum to an App on your smartphone, tablet or PC. Should any of these variables be off, you can use the application to send instructions back to the OsmoBot to engage emergency backups.

Charlie Dare's insight:

Another from Dr Nate Storey on 3 main systems " Media-based systems include IBC based systems and media beds. These are typically simple and inexpensive but difficult to scale.

- DWC (Deep Water Culture)/raft systems are common for commercial growing. Made popular by Dr. Rakocy at the Univeristy of Virgin Islands during the 80′s through 90′s, raft system design has not changed significantly in the past few decades.

- Vertical systems are a recent development. This is what we at Bright Agrotech use, because they use space efficiently and allow us to do live sales, which means reduced labor costs. There are a few tower designs out there, but we prefer our ZipGrow towers."Quote from You tube under this episode~
