I have been keeping reef tanks for over twenty years and I have learned first hand that whatever can go wrong will go wrong. Sound familiar? Yes, its Murphy’s Law and it certainly applies to reef keeping. An aquarium controller is a wise investment to prevent disasters and reef keepers such as myself have leaned on Neptune Systems controllers for reliable tank monitoring and controlling for many years. This week Neptune announced the release of its next generation Apex controller, a smart looking unit with a number of enhancements:
- New base unit and Energy Bar.
- New mounting system to better protect electronics from stray water.
- Addition of salinity monitoring.
- WiFi capable.
- One touch firmware updates on mobile phones.
- Ability to see power draw from each aquarium device.
- Indicators lights on Energy Bar illuminate when an outlet is on.
- Indicator lights blink if too much current is pulled on any individual outlet.
If you would like some help with a new tank build, including help designing a custom aquarium, or help re-configuring your current setup then you can visit this page for more information. And if you are looking to add some equipment, I do sell GHL, Pax Bellum, Reef Octopus Calcium and Kalk Reactors and Royal Exclusiv products, including Dreamboxes, which is the equipment I use and recommend. I also sell Reef Brite metal halide and LED fixtures as well as Maxspect & IceCap Gyres.
As for additional insights and information, please explore my many other reef tank and SPS related articles as well as my YouTube channel. For an even deeper dive into reef tank care you can check out my Reef Keeping Master Class. This online course is an immersive and one of a kind educational tool designed to help reef aquarium hobbyists build and maintain a beautiful SPS reef tank. The course is a series of video presentations with some supplemental video from my YouTube channel. There are also quizzes to help students retain and understand the information presented in the course.
Need some frags…..I can help with that as well 🙂 Please visit my SPS Frag store to see what is available.
