OK, so still waiting for a seneye USB power adapter to be shipped so I can get some actual tank readings from seneye light meter. I've tried it in the office connected to desktop and got the pics below and seneye seems to be working.

Hunting around for a laptop. The WiFi adapter would be the ultimate way to send data from tank to computer but that will be next Xmass.

First slide is of the light meter with the office light. It shows (I think) a plant reference (as thick line) and human eye reference (dashed line) against the actual light readings (white/grey line). So it seems to show PAR, LUX and Kelvin (right side in box) plus the actual light spectrum which seems pretty nifty. Er, if that makes sense?? This is all new here.


This is the reading (white/grey line) and PAR/LUX/K from office light only.



This is office light plus torch.



This is of the LED light from the mobile shining right onto the meter.

Included is further information. The link below gives PAR for different plant types which seemed really useful?

Very cool concept - hope it works well in application. I am looking at auto everything soon.

Tank readings for records:

Cu = 0

Kh = 6

Gh = 8

P = 2 to 5ppm (leaning towards 5 so bit higher than normal).

Nitrates - 30ppm I reckon.

The USB power adapter arrived so the Seneye Reef went into the tank yesterday. It is sitting about two thirds of the way down under the lights for the moment.

All looks good.

Then I hit a snag. To actually get the readings I have to take the device back out of the tank. Unfortunately I ran the USB cable behind the filter outlets to hide them and would have to wait for next water change. Why the readings are not stored in the USB power adapter is behind me.

To cheer myself up I ordered the 15m USB cable extension which is the next cheapest option.

I did try setting up a router from a spare one we had but didn't seem to work.

Also contacted Seneye about their wifi power adapter which I think sends readings to the cloud and you can view on mobile. My concern was that mobile phone coverage is really poor under our tin roof but we do have house wifi if that can be used. This was their reply which seemed promising.

"If you have strong Wi-Fi in the house then the seneye web server (Wi-Fi) will be fine on that."

It would be cheaper to buy a really cheap laptop here though and connect that up.

I can't remember if we were discussing using multiple drop checkers here or elsewhere(?) but thought this might be of interest. Last night I got readings off the ph pen over the tank. For info the tank is 4ft x 2ft x 2.5ft (high).

On the back right corner, the reading was 6.7. This matched the PH probe on the CO2 injection. I do wonder if a little low but has been calibrated recently.

Front centre of tank either side of centre brace (about a foot apart) came back at 6.5 for both readings.

The back left corner of tank above the CO2 reactor came back at 6.2 or 6.3. Was moving around.

The water flow had just switched off for feeding. I'll have to try it on next time.

Well that is quite the amount of work. I wonder that that system would be too complicated for me!

And expensive! I don't think there are many FW users of it here.

Hopefully this cable does the job and that's the last purchase (but I'm not betting on anything).
