Created by yojoebosolo (Joe Stiff), this $18 (£14) tiny pump project provides microdoses of a chemical that maintains a fish tank. The pump system is a peristaltic pump that uses mechanical manipulation to move the liquid through a tube. This pump system is commonly used in medical and scientific applications where precision and hygiene are key. The tube can be easily replaced as no liquids go through the pump (they are massaged through the tube), and they can be swapped for a different liquid. Yojoebosolo uses it to micro-dose various chemicals into a fish tank. Powering the project is a Raspberry Pi Pico . Based on the low price in the Bill of Materials, we see that it was the Pico, not the Raspberry Pi Pico W . Details are dotted across the rather lengthy comments section.
