    Useful gadget but with a few limitations. Its good at spotting changes but the absolute readings shouldn't be trusted as they can be out and change over the month.
    6000g unheated in ground koi pond
    +3000g lily/Anoxic pond attached
    28 koi (40 to 65cm)
    Bottom drain & Skimmer to Drum
    JBR boichamber->Blue eco 500 pump ->below surface return.
    Blue Eco 240 -> Large MB -> Waterfall -> Planted Anoxic pond (25 baskets)

    Just like the idea of having a gadget on the pond! LOL

    I do love the seneye despite its limitations - On one occasion I spotted from Egypt that our house sitter was over feeding and was able to head the problem off at the pass. Between watching the fish and the seneye I find that unless I perceive a problem I hardly need to do chemical tests - I might perhaps test monthly no more.

    You need to test nitrite manually as the Seneye can't do this. Plus KH is another important one to manually monitor.
    I love the Seneye for monitoring trends though.

    Have you ordered the Seneye Web Server to go with it? You will need one if you don't want to leave a PC/laptop out by your pond all the time. I installed Ethernet cables to my filter house when I built it to plug the SWS into as I found the wireless dongley thing they recommended for it not very great and cannot get any signal through water.
