With the progress of information technology, The small aquarium and its auxiliary equipment, which are used to raise fish, have gradually developed from functionalization to intellectualization. The aquarium equipment which can realize remote automatic monitoring will change people’s traditional ornamental fish culture to a large extent. The dynamic image of the aquarium collected by analog vidicon through the IMagineWorld service system will be stored and transmitted in this system. The user can monitor the growth of fish at any time and in any place via the network server platform of mobile communication terminal software platform. Meanwhile, users utilize RS485 transparent protocol to obtain the temperature data, and remotely operate the Oxygen increasing equipment, heating, lighting and filtration system through the I/O alarm output port of the video encoder. It is necessary to popularize this production, which has achieved great response in testing.
