Nowadays, we are in lack of time even to take care of ourselves .Then how could we take care of our pets. Many people hesitate to keep fish tanks in their home as fishes need to be fed regularly which they aren’t capable of it they were out of station. Some of us even maintain a fish tank as it gives us lot of happiness by handing it over to our neighbors to take care of it whenever we aren’t available. Here we came up with a solution to this with our Smart Fish Feeder. Our Smart fish feeder is a simple system that works on our response to number of fishes, number of feeds & interval of time required between each feed. This thesis uses a GSM module that intimates the user to clean the tank once the water becomes dirty. These above details will be fed as input to the microprocessor by means of an LCD and a keyboard set up to set the values. Once these values are fetched by the microprocessor it fetches all the data and performs the action of opening the solenoid valve (food valve) in a manner that we would require it to operate. This system helps us to maintain our fishes with ease even without our physical presence.
