Product Questions

With the Apex Gold system what else do i need to purchase to connect my G3 Radion Pro's and my Tunze 6105 pumps?
Question by: John on Aug 29, 2014 2:18:00 AM
Hi John,

To control your Radions you will need the WXM module.
http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/vortech-wireless-module-wxm-neptune-systems.html

The VDM module combined with the Apex to Tunze Stream cables will allow you to control your Tunze 6105 pumps. Each cable will allow you to control 2 Tunze pumps.

Have a great day :)

What does this have on top of the lab grade probe version? Just trying to determine the value of this package.

Also, is the Fusion upgrade available yet, or is it just in beta still?
Question by: Michael on May 14, 2014 4:05:00 AM
Hey Michael,
The gold package adds in the PM2 module, the Salinity Probe, as well as the ORP probe. If your going to add all of these things to your system it will save you some money to get it as a kit.
Apex fusion is still technically in Beta but it is now in Open Beta so you should be able to apply to participate if you wish.

  • Great once past hiccups By Ken on 7/23/2015

    I have had the Apex Gold for 6 months now and love the capabilities and control it gives me. I have however had communication issues with some modules. 1st one of my EB8's went into fallback mode then completely shut off and would not reboot. Then, the PM2 salinity module caused the second EB8 to go into fallback mode every time the PM2 was plugged in. It turned out the PM2 was defective. Neptune has since repaired both the EB8 and the PM2 module though I wound up paying for shipping to Neptune. Victor at customer service was very polite and helpful.
  • Total control for the reef keeper By Adam on 6/4/2015

    This was an upgrade from my Apex Jr. This version of the Apex gives full control over simply everything. The only part of this is the ORP, I have no idea what it is really measuring in the water and what it means but the rest is a must have.
  • Wow! By Joseph on 6/1/2015

    I haven't even begun to realize the capabilities of this unit. While in hindsight I wish I had bought better lights before buying this, I know that I would have bought this anyway thus I do not regret my purchase. I'm not entirely sure the Gold package is worth it as I suspect most reefer do not need the ORP functionality. That being said, I do love the ability to constant see my pH. This has already alerted me to check my alkalinity more often. Also, the ability to remotely see my temp alerted me to the fact that one of my heaters was dead even though I didn't yet have it hooked up to the Apex. Get it!
  • Evert tank should have one By Plomanto on 5/23/2015

    So far I am just using the apex to control the basic functions of the tank. I am also adding safety features.
    The apex s very straight forward to get set up
    I love the alert function that texts me if parameters get out of wac

  • Amazing you need this By Mike on 4/15/2015

    if you have any doubt , don't. Order this now and you'll wonder how you ever lived without it! Seriously.
  • Apex-not much else to say By Tripp on 4/1/2015

    Bought this to replace a very old Apex that finally died-I received it from my brother in law who bought it second hand, so no complaints as I assumed it had been abused. Neptune is even diagnosing the old one so I can hopefully use it for my frag and QT tanks. This time around I went with the Gold system with all the goodies, including their AFS. Didn't get doser yet however. Plug and play... Do wish the EB8 had more spacing and could vary the amp amts a bit more, but other than that, I'm very happy.
  • Not easy to setup but great once it is going! By Vincent on 3/30/2015

    I don't know that I'd recommend this to someone looking to add to an existing tank. However for my new tank I had an extended time to get used to the controls and it is the most expandable thing out there. I don't know that I fully trust the readouts other than to alert me of a rapid change in my chemistry. One other suprise for me was that it would not work with my dosing pumps on the majority of my outlets. This was easily in inexpensively fixed with what I think is an upgrade. You can purchase Light up outlets that you plug your pump in to then plug in to the apex. The problem is the BRS Dosing Pump it self does not draw enough power. However the addition of the (Woods 4325C Single Outlet Power Adapter Plug) and it works great and gives you a visual indicator when your pumps are on to boot!
  • High quality products By Hamad on 3/20/2015

    High quality products , it has all futures any reefers needs. You can monitor your tank when you are away.
  • Upgrade from RKL By Micah on 3/15/2015

    Got to say after three years of using a rkl from digital aqutics (which works well) Neptune is an upgrade! There is so many different things you can do with this controller compared to rkl, I am bummed I haven't got it intaeed of the rkl.
  • Great Product By Michael on 3/4/2015

    I bought this last May and it is now running my ATO, BRS 2 part dosing, UV, Bio Pellet, new Gyre pump, main pump, heater and my skimmer. I would never be without one again. As others have said, fusion is great and works well.

    I also have the apex auto feeder, but haven't used it yet.
  • Is it worth the price?? By StaFishMan on 2/17/2015

    Although this cost me as much as my 180 gallon tank after watching all the videos on-line and hearing everyone else say that it is worth every penny I would have to agree. Yes $799.00 is a lot of money for a controller. Hey you can buy a PC for only $350!

    That said I can see that this will do everything I want and everything I think I could ever want it to do. What good is an expensive tank if you can't keep it up and running and look like the show piece you wanted? For me this is exactly the ticket and even though I am still adding more upgrades like more outlets I need, and eventually the Lunar Module, and others that I will do over time.

    They have really put a tremendous amount of effort into making this work without having to be a computer genius. Kudos to Neptune systems for an incredible product!

    Watch a few videos on YouTube and you can see why you can't live without one. Even if is the less capable models I would do whatever you can to save for one of these Apex controllers.
  • Excellent By Miguel on 1/28/2015

    Great system, very useful, apex fusion is awesome, I would highly recommend this
