About

Well, since becoming interested in keeping saltwater fish, I've already had my share of things I "need to keep my eye on" in the tank, such as are the new clownfish getting along and/or hosting to an anemone, or why is it that I keep coming home to less fish (thank you Sally Lightfoot Crab)......so I ended up setting up a wireless IP cam next to my tank so that I could keep an eye on it throughout the day, but unfortunately, depending on the time of day, the angle of the sun or whatever, I was unable to see reliably and started thinking that an in tank solution would be so much better.  Sure, I could get a GoPro and wedge it somewhere in there, but why do that when I can design something that would allow me to take a good look around and actually interact a little bit when I’m bored at work or on vacation wondering if everything is surviving.  Also, when paired with a ReefKeeper, Apex or Reef Angel you can feed them (with an Autofeeder) and make sure everyone is eating, or turn the lights on and off for your viewing pleasure, etc.

Risks and challenges

It will be challenging to build something that can stand up to long term, constant exposure to saltwater, but nothing insurmountable. Developing a web interface that's easy to access from both smartphones/tablets and computers should not be exceedingly difficult either, but could present some challenges.
