How to make an Arduino Tide Clock for Marine Life Simulation

Tide clock is a clock that displays times to/past high and low tides instead of displaying real time.

Inspired by the marine life, today I found a project that uses Arduino to simulate high and low tides into an artificial environment for marine life simulation.

The project has both electronic and mechanical parts.

The electronic part features Arduino and a real time clock to calculate tide times.

The three components of my simple tide clock from left to right: Arduino Pro Mini 3.3V (red), Real Time Clock (blue), SSD1306 OLED display.



While the mechanical part features parts that control water flow and level into the artificial marine life environment.
