More boring readings:

Ph tank - 6.5 pretty much by test kit, ph probe and digital meter (a minor miracle) - with co2 on.

Ph tap - 7.7 to 7.8.

GH - 9 (January - 8).
KH - 5.5 (January - 6).
Cu - 0 (January - 0).

Ammonia - got a small reading. Suspect it was the root tabs.

Actually, is it doing a good job overall?

What are your thoughts about the Seneye after having it awhile?

😀 Did a small water change last night. I think one filter clean, adding a lot of fish and so much replanting has been too much for the tank. Looking forward to another water change on Saturday to remove more debris.

For large or multiple tanks I think the Seneye is good value for money. It does have an O2 meter on it as well as ph, temperature and ammonia but I know of nothing else so cheap that measures not only par but the light spectrum output.

In a deep tank using lights of unknown quality it's been very handy. I'd like to test bulb decay over time, spectrum shift with bulb decay and cheap vs expensive bulbs so if you are a test kit nerd like me it's all pretty interesting. 😏

On the flip side getting the data to a computer can be a issue, the ph / ammonia test slides only last a month and the software is ok'ish.

Sounds pretty good overall. Appreciate your details of its benefit.

Definitely keeps the local aquarium society bemused. If I bought it all again I'd go straight for the wifi connection so I could get readings directly on my phone with the Seneye app (and from there a small step to wifi video bwahaha).

For the SW tanks it is designed for, I'd suspect this would be seen as a small expense since I know of people with back-up generators for their tanks (mainly 6 or 8ft).

Yeah, some of those kind of tanks are the 3rd largest ownership a person has after the house and the cars

The wifi is an option you can add on? Or get it with when you purchase?

Too true!

Here the unit was $200. The wifi would be $300 extra but I looked back and had spent $150 on cheaper data transfer options anyways. If you have a laptop then problem solved for $0 so I must admit I think they are good with the data transfer options.

It's a shame that the 02 meter can't be swapped for a CO2 meter but oh well

I think I had seen it way back around the time I mentioned it on here, and it was around half price around $100-115 (maybe a sale probably over - don't know). Hmmmm?! Good to know!
