Testing water parameters on a constant basis can become tedious and expensive. Test kits can set you back anywhere between $10 and $25 on average, and they’re not always easy to use or even accurate in some situations. The small electronic testers were supposed to solve these issues, but they were only designed for single water parameters and even those weren’t all that easy to use. Because of this, hobbyists have been searching for ways to still gather good data about their aquarium without having to invest in expensive controller setups. Companies like Seneye have done a great job filling those needs, and it looks like we’ll have a newcomer to the game. Mindstream is the newest aquarium monitoring system to splash onto the scene, and although it isn’t available to purchase just yet, it looks rather promising with its twelve confirmed water parameters and cloud-based access to hobbyists. According to Mindstream, their new monitor uses fluorescence sensing technology to continuously test twelve different water parameters. As it gathers data about the water, the monitor streams all the information to a user’s profile located on Mindstream servers. From there, the information is loaded to individual hobbyist profiles, allowing users to read data and graphs from their PC, Mac, smartphone or tablet MORE: Mindstream Aquarium Monitoring System Measures Twelve Parameters with One Unit
