These may be programmable through the Apex under the advanced setting when programming the outlet. Information for programming may currently be available on the Neptune Forums (one of the best sources) as well as by emailing Neptune Systems directly. I have included their contact information below!
The Standard Apex and Gold will have 2 variable voltage ports included and if they are still open you can connect the pump directly to them. If they are taken you will need additional ports in the VDM module. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
With 15’ of head height, you will be using right around 70% of the pumps available flow to simply just push water up. That will leave you with about 30% or so left for available flow (around 900gph) which would be just fine for a 125g tank. We would suggest keeping any elbows or hard turns down to a minimum since any additional fittings can restrict flow as well.

How to maintain Waveline DC pump
Waveline DC pumps are designed and built in module-pattern. In most of the circumstance, the controller and AC/DC adapter can be easily replaced or re-organized. For example, a DC6000 controller and DC10000II AC/DC adapter and DC4000 pump body can run together. Nevertheless, DC4000 AC/DC adapter can not run the DC6000/DC10000II/DC12000 pumps.
We recommend the users should check and clean the pump in very 6 months or even in shorter period.
Muddy fresh water;
Hard Water, high K-Value water, high minerals water;
Warm water below 35 degree C or tropical climate water
The maintenance will be simple, unscrew the pump volute and check if any stocks in pump impeller and volute. Use fresh water to clean all parts. Pull out the Shaft to check if any mud, sands on the surface and clean the shaft house inside with acid detergent, like Tunze Citric Acid. Use fresh water to wash out the whole pump again.
Great Product By Voreden on 7/29/2016Voreden wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis is my first dc pump. its great with the ability to control the flow volume. I am pumping up 15 ft to a tank on the first floor and the variable flow makes a big difference, full volume knocks all the debri free so it can be sucked into the sump.
Tons of flow By Windwaterwaves on 4/4/2016Windwaterwaves would recommend this product to a friendI picked up this pump for the apex features, and it's GPH. Let me just say the amount of water this thing moves is impressive, on my 200 gallon tank with (2) 1" returns it is too much water and I have to run it about half speed. I'll be installing a manifold to feed my refugium, gfo, carbon, etc. I would use it with my Apex but those variable control ports are at a premium, I wish the apex had more but both are controlling two of my leds (full spectrum/blue) so alas without spending $100 for another set of controller and light ports I will just have to run the waveline in on/off mode..

Quiet & efficient By Bob E on 11/11/2015Bob E would recommend this product to a friendUsing this as an external, return pump. This pump is smaller, quieter and much more efficient than my Reeflo Barracuda. Yes, it flows 25% less water but uses 60% less power, at least by my watt meter. 4000gph @ 321 watts vs 3100gph @ 144watts. I really had too much flow through my sump with the Reeflo, I needed to slow down a little anyway. Also with Apex, I can slow DC12000 down at night and vary flow during the day. I have an external recirculating skimmer, so I don't have any worry about changing water levels in sump. Only time will tell. I would be totally happy if the pump lasts as long as the reeflo, 9 yrs, running 24/7/365, and still working when removed from service. DC power is the way of the future, IMHO, of course.
