I'm setting up a new salt water aquarium, and one of my goals for the project
is to include a Linux based data acquisition system.

This system would be able to sample pH, ORP, Temp, etc sensors, and have the
ability to switch outlets on and off, run dosing pumps, send alerts, and sound
a local audible alarm.

I'm going to write all the software for control decisions, and may use
Nagios for alerting.

The missing pieces are the data acquisition component, and relay driver
system. An idea for a salt water friendly aquarium enclosure would also
be helpful.
