About this project

About

I imagine you’re here because you have heard about the internet enabled fishtank, the world’s most advanced taking aquarium.
I made it as a one-off project purely to push my technical skills to the limit and create something awesome. I had a vision and loads of crazy ideas of what I could make it do, some seemed way beyond my level of technical skill. I’m happy to say I proved myself wrong.
I’m really happy with how it turned out. Naturally there’s a few bits I’d like to neaten up or spend more time on, but overall it’s a finished project.
