I’m really excited about this event. I want to learn how others are using their Apex data, what experiments are they doing on their systems... I initially thought I’d only use an Apex to baby-sit my tank while out of town, but I was already able to right-size heaters on my garage tanks and reduce heat loss by looking at the temp plots, and the other data is really interesting.

Some questions:
-what do people do with their pH data (fine-tune additives, regulate refugium light/feeding time, detect “events”?)
-is there any reason to use the “ORP” probe?
-for those that have multiple tanks, how do you configure your modules (which extension modules do you use and why)? How did/how often do you calibrate all those probes?
-wiring - what do you do about GFIs and current loads with respect to the controller and outlets?

Are these questions you want to ask at the event or looking for answers here? Happy to answer them but I suggest starting a new thread.

A WD from fellow hobbyist. I’m trying to figure out how to post “live” photos so the movement & speckle come through...
I'm curious, do you happen to know the lineage of this WD piece? I know there's a JKR and Cornbred version. I have the Cornbred version and I have a similar polyp extension. Anyone with the JKR one see anything similar?

At the time I got that WD (from Tim) 1.5 yrs ago I didn’t know or care about coral lineage yet so I didn’t ask and he didn’t tell me which variant.
