The window is going into the tank which is the top half of the original 5k litre water tank. I covered the top with a slab of polypropylene,screwed (not bolted) and sealed with silicone and its still good after two years so that gave me a bit of confidence to try the window.

Late afternoon and all I get is my own reflection(I reflect,therefore I am). Anyway no leaks so far and its fun to watch the Tandanus. They have been endearing themselves to me over the last few months, kind of a laid back,docile critters, they never complain and look happy just sucking on algae. They've been in with the Silver Perch without problem, except when I try to net out some Perch you always get more dopey Tandanous in the net than the wiley little Perch. When they're all thrashing around in the net the Tandanus wreak there revenge and directly or indirectly poison the Perch, I lost about 30 Perch before I figured out what was going on. So they are going there separate ways (tanks).

Watered the front lawn then replaced it with tapwater.

Hi, from a little Shopfitting Display/Plastics Fabrication business in the local Industrial Area.

Great effort!

As a fellow windower, I can tell you it's awesome!

A big light for watching at night is well worth the expense!

Thanks B. Definitely getting a light, my daughter is getting tired of holding a torch over the tank so I can watch them at night. Its addictive, certainly better than watching 99% of the drivel on TV.
I put some SP's in with the Tandanus for some more entertainment and thinking about other fish I could put in, maybe some gudgeons. First thing I noticed is how aggressive the larger Perch are to the smaller ones, it was none stop the first few days, maybe a bit less now but what a waste of energy, if they could breed that out of them they might grow a bit faster.

Another development with the system, Matt (signore) rigged up an Arduino and a couple temp probes so I can keep an eye on the temps while I'm away from home. Huge shout out 'THANKS' to Matt he is AWESOME ! http://www.appquaponics.com:1337/users/rendang and he gets free trout fingerling forever.[img]

I really like the weekly chart function, you can see the spike where I had the temp probe in the chilled system out for a few minutes yesterday afternoon. The ambient temp is not really showing correctly its being affected by the heat of the modem, I need to replace that with a cable, or move it into its own box.

next time I'm there we can put a lead on it and mount it outside the box.

I was about to ask about that weird ambient temperature profile! You really need it away from the wall, in open air with a housing similar to a Stephenson Screen to get an accurate air temp reading. You can make a cheap one from 100mm white PVC with plenty of ventilation holes and an air gap at the top under a wide shading lid, making sure the sun cant shine directly on the sensor.

The graphs look great, what logging interval are you using?
