Pennsylvania Patent of the Month – November 2022

Building and sustaining a habitat is no easy feat. These aquariums must consider temperature, lighting type and intensity, salinity, pH and more in order to properly support fish, reptiles, and other aquarium-dwelling pets. EcoTech Marine, LLC’s latest patent makes controlling and maintaining this habitat just a little bit easier.

Their system stores and controls the optimal environmental conditions. This central control system synchronizes other devices which adjust the environmental conditions. For instance, it controls and regulates heaters, fans, filters, aerators and so on. While controlling these devices, the system simultaneously retrieves data from each piece to constantly adjust controls.

Their design is offered in a mobile application, allowing users to easily monitor and control the aquarium from a single screen. EcoTech Marine has spent the better part of two decades revolutionizing the way people think about aquarium technology. In fact, since their founding, EcoTech Marine has set all new industry standards for aquarium equipment, engineering precision technology to improve both the health and aesthetics of a marine ecosystem.
