I started saltwater with a 55 gallon reef, and before that hundreds (yes, hundreds) of fresh water tanks, so I have been there. I guess it's like gardening, if you get okay at it, you want a bigger one...

As a kid I grew up in hospital waiting rooms. There wasn't any good television in those days (I didn't think so anyways) and almost all hospitals had a fish tank in the pediatric wards for kids like me that needed to think about something else besides pain and fear. That's where it all started over 50 years ago.

I still zen out on the fish tank and while I don't deal with as much pain as I did when I was a kid, I still find myself using it to relax. MUCH cheaper than a shrink and it works. So, bigger must be better, right?

Has anyone used this thing? Under $200 and says it measures PAR along with everything else.

I think I might order one. The replacement devices that do the monitoring last a month and cost under 10. It keeps you from ever having calibration problems and the whole thing is under $200. I have always avoided controllers and programmable LEDs because I am too cheap to lay out the bread. But I want to see my reef parameters on my iPad and this looks like it might do the trick. The trick it does with PAR and lumens is pretty cool by itself. I youtubed it.

That's a really cool device. I wouldnt have much uses for it because my tank is quite low tech but for you it would be great.

I may get one, they sell them at my lfs, if I do, I'll report back with any findings.

For a hundred quid it's worth a punt.

Interesting. How can they sell this so cheap when the apogee meter is well over 300? Please report your findings when compared to the one you have Greg.

Yeah I'm interested in this too, it's too bad the apex isn't capable of keeping track of your parameters like. Or it would be neat if they would sell an upgraded version of the seneye to become a controller .
