A little Glitchy! By maverick on 12/13/2014

I have lots of experience with aquariums and purchased my first controller from Neptune Systems back in the 90s. And while I still think it is the best controller on the market I have been a little disappointed with some things. I have purchased and setup 2 Apex Systems in the last 6 months and they have both had issues with the probes. The 1st one was an Apex Gold Package and within the first couple weeks the probes seemed to start having values way outside the normal range. I purchased another unit w/Lab Grade pH Probe and within the first week it went up to 9.3 in a 15 minute time period and stayed very high for days. I tried recalibrating it but it still reads high. I am now waiting on a support ticket because I wasn't able to reach anyone by phone at Neptune Systems! I also have had issues logging into my Fusion Account and thus my controller several times and resetting my username/password hasn't helped.
Overall I believe this to be a good product but am just hoping they can resolve some of these issues since you would expect good performance from such an expensive product!

This is a great device. Love all the functionality and ease of setup. Now I know how my tank is doing no matter where I am.

Easy to setup easy to use very useful already saved my tank from a heater falfunction. Only reason I give it a 4 is to really do everything I wanted I had to buy some add ons. In my opinion for 500 it should come with everything you need

Everything works fine I'd like to say...I stumbled with the video embedding on my Foscam, been to a lot of How to intructions ion forums in Neptune site. and still working on it. That's why I give it 4 stars.

As a reefer, why would you EVER build a tank without one of these. It has made automation easy. I love my APEX!!!

I got this when I upgraded my tank, installation was easy learning to use it was not so easy for me but lots of help online. I went from a reefkeeper to the apex and I can do so much more now.

Purchased this to help me with my first saltwater setup. I have also purchased the afs system for it. It has helped me be able to feed my aquarium when im not home from my smartphone, and i get alerts from the temp and ph improper. this is the best aquarium controller out there.

I cant imagine not having a fish tank without a controller. The Apex is easy to set up. You don't have to be that smart with computers to do it. Once its set up its easy to program and make it fit your aquarium needs! This controller has saved my tanks many times.

For those who wish to take their reef to the next level, this is the tool you need. From simple sunrise / sunset LED function, to full system monitoring and control, the Apex has you covered. Easily the best investment I have made in the hobby. Fantastic support from the Neptune Systems forum as well!

At first I was a little frustrated setting up,however most issues were mistakes I had made. Apex fusion works seamlessly so far. I have added WXM and leak detection. I am very happy with the web access and email warnings. WXM is a must have accessory if you have Ecotech lights or pumps. It's expensive but we'll worth it . Just think about the piece of mind the next time you are on vacation.

I've been using the Apex for about 7 months now. I started out with a ReefKeeper.. This product is much easier to use, as well provides much better customization. I have it controlling everything in my tank from the float switches, to the door switch to turn the sump lights on when I open the cabinet.
