Yeh it's not cheap. I believe now they have it at 499. I think it will drop more by time for sure. It already dropped from 699 to 499.. it's still the cheapest than any other option considering its stand alone and do not require you to buy anything else.Added to my list of shit I wish I could afford lol.
Honestly having a successful tank do not necessarily require fancy equipment as long as you are diligent. These equipment automate tasks thats all.
Also when it come to kh, my write up is more relate to sps tanks with sensitive coral and with balanced systems like zeovit in mind.
Depend on your system you might be ok testing kh/ca once a week.
One day I will do a write up about zeovit as its intricate system and can be annoying at times how balanced it need to be. But I love it out of all what I have tried in the past.
What am trying to say is, we should scale up or down with our systems demand and not make things more complicated than it needs to be. If you do not carry sensitive coral. If you are not running funcky systems that requir certain balance you do not have to be too stringent.
