DIY LED aquarium lighting with real time weather simulation



DIY LED aquarium lighting project for my reef tank. The 660 watts fixture simulates the weather from Cayman Islands in real time. 3 x 100 watts and 18 x 20 watts multi-chip leds controlled separately by an arduino sitting on the lamp). Weather simulation is done by requesting weather info from weather underground by a Raspberry Pi and send the data wirelessly to the lamp. Fixture supports 5 different cloudiness levels. Exact sunrise/sunset and moonphase. Wind speed and direction (defines in wich direction and speed the cloud animation scrolls over the leds). Moon travels over the lamp over night. Soft start function. Remote controllable via Web application running on Raspberry Pi. Accessable over internet.
The music is also DIY 🙂
