Abstract: The goldfish is awell-known beautyful aquariumfish, butit is highly sensitive to the environment; thus, it demands lots ofcare and attention from the owner. The main purpose of this project is to assist the goldfish owners to monitor the pH level, turbidity and temperature using the Internet of Things (IoT). A productis developed based on the user-centric requirements, and the Design Thinking Model in five major phases of actions, namely empathise, define, ideate, prototype, and test. Controlled by acircuit board of Arduino WeMos D1 R32,the electronic device usesthree sensorsto monitor the conditions of the water–pH, temperature and turbidity. Testing of thefunctionalities was performed successfully and yielded meaningful results. The input and output functions operated smoothlyaccording to the flow chart,and were indicated by LED;at the same time, notifications were sent to the Blynk application platform.The LCD screen displayed the real-time conditions of water quality in the aquarium;the data were used to maintain the ideal conditions of the water for the goldfish to live in.
