Hey, Swinging on over after hearing the ScapeFu podcast. I can grow plants, but I can't aquascape very well, so I'm here to learn. I've been in the hobby for a few years now and have a high tech 125g w/ sump conveniently located in a wall. Here is a slightly older gallery documenting the build process: http://imgur.com/a/jwssM#0 and here http://i.imgur.com/Jn6vs4R.jpg is a more recent, but not so super recent picture. I'm not happy with the way it turned out and am planning on a redo during the spring... a more "island" style scape located closer to the left overflow. I'm also a web programmer and decided to combine my love for websites and programming with my love of fish tanks. I decided to solve a little problem I have... forgetting to do things. so I'm looking to automate my aquarium. Now video below is a little "older" and doesn't showcase everything I've got done. at this point my controller can schedule 6 outlets to be on/off or on/off based on temperature. I can schedule 2 peristaltic pumps to pump once a day a specific amount of liquid in mL. so effectively, this is going to handle my lights, co2, and fertilization dosing. I have 2 float switches that I'm wiring up to further control a pump to top of sump when low. my original goal with my fish tank was an african biotope w/ african community fish. Finding the right plants, in abundant numbers for a 125, has proven difficult. so at this point I just want a jaw droppingly gorgeous planted tank w/ african community fish.
