Well, yes and no. They have the ability to have the iphone access aquanotes, their pc thing, but their free software has no ability to do alarms or event logging. My whole decision for an iphone app was not just access but the fact that it would let me know if there was a problem.

OMG! Wow I'm pretty upset I didn't get on last night!


Personally glad you didn't have to spend the extra cash on the reactors, and very glad to see this will be up by the time Jen and I come to see it

I was too, I had no one to share the excitement with, it was fw land.

And also a big yay. It's also got a gigantic biowheel for some reason. It makes me giggle.

we'll discuss that one later.

If nothing else, it should suit me quite well for the near future and a long while after it. maybe in a couple years I can add the reactors but hey, one less thing to clean and still room under the tank for my ato bucket.

160 lbs of sand, how deep of a sand bed will that make for you?

i'm guesstimating about 3"?

That's about all i'd put in there anyways. I don't like really deep beds, but I like to keep them deep enough for wrasses and other burrowing.

Cool. I was asking because I'm going to set up a 90 soon and wanted it deep enough for sand sifters but wasn't sure how much to get. I was told 100 lbs would be enough.

It might be. I tend to plan on 2# per gallon for my taste in sandbed.

I don't like deep but it can't be too shallow

One more thing on the apex... It will send you alarms, when something is wrong it will e-mail you... also with the Iphone/android you can control almost everything... there are a few people that use it as a remote to turn on/off lights, pumps, skimmers etc. It can be programed to send an e-mail alert for any reason it can monitor... water on floor (additional equipment needed) Auto top off being on for longer then it should be under normal situations, at witch point it turns it off and e-mails you (also additional equipment needed) Or just something like your pH or your temp is too high/low. I'm not saying that the apex is better then the reefkeeper I'm saying that they are comparable and that the reason you stated not to get one doesn't make sense to me.
