Anyone running Reef Pi or another non-Apex controller?


Recommended Posts

I'm curious what your experience has been with Reef Pi or non-Apex controller.

Did you cobble stuff together or take a more semi-DIY route?

What types of connections/add-ons do you use?

Apex is too much of an investment for me at the moment. Seeing what others do instead.

@Shar_Zard didn't know about a $100 apex. Is that buying used? It's called Apex classic? 

The Apex Classic was the previous generation before the current Apex model was introduced in 2016.  You’ll often find them for sale as people upgrade to the latest model.  Beware that buying used models that old often means you’ll need to purchase new probes, and it’s common to see rust or corrosion that can make them less reliable.

See my Apex Hardware Overview article for more details on the various models:
