Corrupts itself, Update experience is terrible By bentwookie on 6/24/2015

I've had a number of these over the years. Two problems. First the memory goes bad and they start acting strange. My password and HTTP port field are randomly filled with junk characters every week. Second, when you add modules (the vortech controller comes to mind) you'll need to update the firmware. The process for doing this is very difficult to get right without messing up your unit. Check out their support forum and see all the people who've had trouble. It's enlightening.

This is the first tank that I am using a control system. The initial programming can be overwhelming but the support forum while have you up and running in no time.
Probably not worth the money By Robert on 4/22/2015

When I started my current tank I decided to do it right and week one purchased the full apex with all pertinent modules including the break out box and ai light module for my ai hydra 52's. It works great but after getting everything dialed in I realized there are much cheaper ways to handle a to and the temp,pH, ORP and salinaty it monitors for me are really not the most important things to watch. If it could monitor calcium, alkalinity and phosphate it would really be worth the money but it cannot. You end up still testing for those most important parameters. If I had to do it over again I would UST otacom for that and maybe a pH stand alone monitor and the ai director for the lights. If you have to have a controller this one IMHO is the best.

OK this thing has made things so much easier for my wife to do tank stuff while I am off on business she loves, I love and the fish love it. I have automated so many tasks from ATO to water changes to supplements and I can monitor things remotely.

This system is extremely simple to set up and extremely intricate and allows to control every aspect of your aquarium. I no longer worry about my tank when i leave my house a quick and simple look on my iPhone and i'm reassured everything is perfectly fine on the homefront

I got this to use on my 60 gallon cube. The new Fusion application makes this much easier to setup and access over the internet. It was really nice to be able to check on the tank remotely while I was on vacation. This is highly recommended.

I bought this controller for my new 300 gallon. I have been using the GHL on my 250 for a few years now. The Apex is less than half the price and so much easier to use. Im even using the Apex and the feeder on the GHL tank. I have thought about selling the GHL as the Neptune can run both tanks. A must have for todays Aquarium enthusiasts.

Having a heck of a time getting connected to my home network. Im by far no dummy when it comes to this stuff. I have contacted Neptune systems for a month. You have to communicate through email, cant even talk to a real person. Im done, The product would be great if It didn't take a month back and forth to get figured out. Poor customer service, Take your money and run company.
