Can you turn a Wii remote into an aquarium sensor?

"The Wiimote can track just about anything: All that’s needed is an LED light."

I'm just waiting for some ambitious aquarist to turn this into a water level sensor for their auto-topoff unit or to somehow measure water flow velocity/force or even water turbulence. What ideas can you come up with for this?
