Real time monitoring of Aquarium water quality

I was wondering if they make probes for real time monitoring for nitrates nitrites and ammonia.
Any clues?

Yep they do, but I believe they are waaaay more expensive than the old fashioned liquid tests. There are some you can monitor via your PC.

As far as aquarium-type probes, the ammonia and nitrite ones might be hard to find. Pinpoint is the brand that comes to mind, and I don't think they make ammonia or nitrite. Nitrate though you'll find, as well as pH, salinity, calcium, ORP, and a few others.
