The updated version of Hurley's controller now posted at The Krib
should work fine, as far as I can see. I have a copy of an earlier
posted version which has all the same resistor values, but one glaring
error: U6 is connected to the output of U5, not U2. Maybe that's the
error you remember?
In the circuit description,
Hurley also recommends using a better (higher input impedance) op amp at
U1. I think this is a good idea.
I'm certainly no guru, but I did work on similar circuitry at the local
university for years. I'd be happy to discuss this, or any other
aquarium electronics, if you'd care to drop me a line.
