In this paper, the design had been aimed to control water temperature and circulating water system to achieve the better enhancement of hatching fish eggs; Arduino C as software and arduino board and temperature sensor as hard ware. By using arduino uno board provides multiple inputs analogs and input/output digitals to made reading data of sensor, control water temperature degree and water pump operating as desiring. Present study was conducted to induced on breeding of commercially important common carp (Cyprinus carpio linnaeus)
due to the non-availability of its quality seeds from the natural resources for environmental degradation. This study to investigate the effect of three water flow rate about (110, 230, 350) ml/min for 1 litre volume of water and three number of eggs density (1000, 2000 , 3000 eggs per litre ) on hatching percentage and fry production of water quality mentor (pH , oxygen and temperature) was measured during incubation period every 2 hours until the eggs hatch. The obtained results revealed that the hatching ratio in incubator unite in water flow rate (110, 230, 350 ml/min) were 64%, 65%, 70 % at 1000, 2000, 3000 eggs/liter respectively. On the other hand, hatching ratio in the incubator unite in water flow rate (110, 230, 350 ml/min) were 68 %, 73%, and 77 % at density of eggs 1000, 2000, 3000 eggs/L respectively. Fry production at the third different water flow rate (110, 230, 350 ml/min) were 20.4, 21.9, and 23.1 fry/L at 1000, 2000, 3000 eggs/L respectively. The mean value of pH was 6.0, the mean value of dissolved oxygen was 5.7mg/l, and the mean Degree of temperature was 24oC±0.1.
