reef-pi is an opensource reef tank controller based on Raspberry Pi. This is the software repository for reef-pi. If you are trying to build a physical controller to automate your reef tank, use reef-pi website. If you are new to reef keeping and want to know about the hobby use one of the online forums such as reef2reef or nano-reef(for smaller reef tanks).

reef-pi is an award winning, modular, do it yourself (DIY) project that aims to provide a hackable, affordable reef tank automation platform using easy to learn electronics. Apart from Raspberry Pi, reef-pi uses a handful of additional electronics boards from adafruit, a open hardware, community-focused electronics company. reef-pi is under active development. Follow reef2reef thread if you want to stay up to date with reef-pi development. Use the build guides on reef-pi website if you just want to build a reef tank controller based on reef-pi.
