The Smart Aquarist’s Toolbox: Must-Have Devices for Your Tank

There are many clever aquarium devices to use whether you want to reduce maintenance or increase the durability of your aquarium.

AWES protects against floor flooding and fluctuations in aquarium salinity by using a liquid sensor as well as software that runs on smartphones and PCs. It also automates many different aspects of the aquarium.

Aquarium Technology

Technology is revolutionizing the way aquariums are designed and constructed. Aquarium owners can ensure their tanks are well-maintained by using modern the latest technology.

Water quality monitoring systems are among the essential aquarium technologies. These systems monitor essential variables in the water, such as temperature, pH level and the level of dissolved oxygen. They can even be alerted if they observe any anomalies in your tank’s water chemical composition.

A popular technology for aquariums is LED lighting. LED lighting systems are energy-efficient and has programmable options such as night and day settings. These lighting systems will improve the health of fish and corals. They use less power as compared to traditional metal halide lights. New LED technology offers an array of color spectrum choices to fit your particular marine configuration.

Automated Feeding Systems

The automated feeders dispense an amount of food according to a pre-programmed timetable. The feeders that are automated fit inside the 2.8L tanks used to farm killifish (Aquaneering). These feeders use two holes in the tank’s lid to deliver feed.

Automated feeding systems need to be utilized in conjunction with continuous monitoring to be sure that the fish follow their preprogrammed schedules and the system is working properly. If not, beginner farmers are often prone to run after their feeders, turning them off and turning them back on, feeding too much on one occasion, and underfeeding on the next.

Noncentralized feeders remain operating in a power-saving mode up to the designated feeding time. At that point, they will rotate an acrylic disc in between the green LED array as well as photoresistors. Then, they will rotate over the drop area in order to confirm the loss of 5 mg (Figure 1 figure 1A, supplement 1A). An onboard steppermotor determines the photoresistor’s resistance and then confirms that a feed has occurred.

Smart Monitoring Systems

The majority of aquariums require sophisticated equipment. This technology allows aquarists to manage and monitor these equipment using a smartphone. This technology can reduce time spent testing water, checking lighting or feeding fish.

Two types of products are offered which are monitors and controllers. Monitors are devices that track a parameter such as pH, temperature or turbidity while a controller is not just able to keep track of it but also operate the devices that are based on this data.

A good example is a thermostat which automatically shuts your heater off when water temperatures exceed safe levels. Another instance is a doser that could be programmed to dose Fertilizers or Trace Elements. Also, it can do Balling Salts. Others monitor evaporation of tank volume and various aspects. Users are notified via smartphone apps or computer software.

Aquarium Controls with WiFi connectivity

If you have an aquarium for fish or a saltwater terrarium there are many things that need to be observed. Things like water temperature as well as pH levels, lights and pump operation to name just a handful.

The best way to automate this is with an aquarium control. An alarm feature is programmed to shut off the lights if temperatures reach dangerous thresholds.

A smart aquarium that is connected to the Internet of Things will monitor the various variables above, and permit users to monitor the aquarium from anywhere via a mobile application. The system will also reduce the amount of effort required to maintain healthy fish tanks and avoid unusual death of fish. A good aquarium controller let you instantly increase the size of your tank with a wide range of equipment and modules.

Automated Water Change Systems

A regular water change for freshwater aquariums as well as saltwater reef aquarium are an essential part of maintenance of fish tanks. They replenish vital minerals, minimize the accumulation of waste and toxins substances, and ensure the proper temperature and salinity. The smart water change systems can automate the process of siphoning, replacing and repurposing thi cong be nuoi hai san nha hang tank water to save both time and energy. Additionally, they reduce stress on your fish.

They are usually made up of a controller device and tubing that connects the aquarium with the reservoir, and also an interval pump. The tubing is connected to a valve, which lets you control how much water flows through the tank and reservoir.

It is the Neptune Apex DOS is an ideal choice for an automated tank water changing system since it functions as a Reef Controller as well as a Reef Controller. It also comes with many other options, including the tank’s water level sensors and a sump water level sensor as well as a float switch that can be used for the reservoir and many more!
