The Waterfall Aquarium

Waterfall Aquarium is an aquarium that contains three sea creatures and a waterfall.  The waterfall backlight can be changed to red, blue or green.  The sea creatures can be moved to different vertical depths in the fish bowl.


At its heart are four servo motors.  I put a servo motor in the base of the water fountain to control the colour wheel.  The sea creatures are moved in and out of the fish bowl by three servo motors that are above the fish bowl.  Each of these servo motors has a cardboard wheel attached to it, to increase the amount of travel for each sea creature.
