Some more idk questions what does it mean by you can add so many moduels? Thanks
Well i dont have the apex, i have a reefkeeper but i may be able to help with a few questions.
In my opinion you will want the 8 outlets. Usually lighting takes up 2 as many fixturs have mutiple power cords, and heater tanks 1. So that 3 right there. Other things you may need outlets for include ATO, uv
sterilizer, reactors, pumps etc.
Modules monitor or control certain aspects like probes(temp,ph, salinty), moon lighting, additional outlet modules etc. the different models have limits number of modules that can be added. This might be of concern depending how many outlets you need and what other modules you may want. Or if you had multiple tanks that you would be controlling that would need a large number of modules.
Im pretty sure you can get more outlets for the jr, but im not 100%, i would have to check it out, maybe someone else here knows.
