Keeping fish in an aquarium requires special attention. Aquarium owners often worry about feeding schedules and water conditions that must be monitored daily. To make this task easier, an IoT-based automatic fish-feeding and monitoring system has been developed. This tool allows for automatic feeding based on a predetermined schedule and monitors water conditions through an Android application. The system uses several components, including a NodeMCU ESP8266 microcontroller, an RTC timer, a temperature and pH sensor to monitor water conditions, an ultrasonic detector to show remaining fish food, and a servo motor to operate the fish feed valve. The objective of this research is to enable hobbyists to keep their pet fish without worrying about their well-being in case they are unable to attend to them regularly.
