    Gooseneck light suggestions

    I have Kessil's on my marine tank but they're a bit expensive for my tastes (like the AI ones) for a small tank like this. TMC used to do a tile for marine and for fresh/planted that weren't that expensive but build quality and reliability were an issue. One of my marine tank has a full spectrum...

    Gooseneck light suggestions

    Projects people want to see, but don't have time for?

    yeah I considered a pi but in the end I went for an arduino as i wanted to do it more of an embedded solution rather than computer based solution. if i'd gone for the pi I may as well have just chucked an old £5 android smartphone in as the processor+interface with a usb breakout cable on it.
