LOMAQ (Low Maintenance Aquarium) project is built for fish farming with less human interface. The project is based on a microcontroller circuit to control the circuit of equipment used on fish farming. The microcontroller (PIC) has a keypad to act as input made to set the timer to control the equipment. All equipment used is controlled by timer. Equipments controlled are light, water pump and food dispenser. There is a timer sensor to show the temperature of the environment and the data is shown on LCD screen. The system would supply the oxygen and food according to the need of the aquarium and cleans the aquarium periodically. The cutting edge of this system is that human can always give the input according to the needs. There would be input interface in the system where it could be altered according to the current needs. Where else the lighting would be pre set to operate in the given timing. The main idea is to make it as a selling product using PIC as the controller .The advantage of this project is that it’s very versatile and very flexible. The system could be integrated with on the market appliance without regarding the brand, type or size. It’s also flexible via its need of use. It can be used for large scale or small scale. The project would be done in small scale as a prototype. Main purpose of this project is reducing human interference in maintaining an aquarium. Besides that it would also help to cut cost of electricity usage.
