I am one of those paranoid reefers and this has reduced my stress and daily work load significantly! It's great to be able to monitor everything from work. Don't let the price scare you, this is a good value!

I've seen a lot of back and forth between the Apex AC, and the RKE, but I personally LOVE the RKE, and the engineering and design choices that the DA folks took. The only thing I wish it had (which will supposedly be coming) is the ability to program through a web API, or web interface. Otherwise, great tool, and i've yet to find someone who doesn't love their RK tool!

Just got this and hooked it up and all i can say is wow! Everything you could need is included, and having the tank status available online with instant emailing of any alarms you could possibly think of is fantastic. No more bulky timers or having to wonder what is happening when you are not in front of your reef. There is built in simple logic that can easily be programmed in an if-then manner.
The graphing feature allows you to more accurately maintain rock solid parameters by tweaking exactly what happens and when. I'm planning to run my two-part dosing using this and dosing pumps and can monitor exactly what is happening to the pH in real time and also by looking at the graphs for the extended effects. The audible alarm, however is close to silent, so depending on hearing it from anywhere but close by is unwise. Definitely recommended as a great asset for removing some of the anxiety and hassle that can occur when everything would otherwise be done manually.
