The joy of aquarium keeping is sometimes overshadowed by the struggle of upkeep. The worst is when your aquatic life is sacrificed when parameters like temperature drift into lethal ranges due to failed equipment or other mishaps.

A proper monitoring and control system for your aquarium solves these problems. Following in the footsteps of the Apex, Neptune wanted to create a more affordable, entry-level model – enter the ApexEL.

The ApexEL prevents aquarium catastrophes by monitoring equipment, temperature, and pH in your aquarium, takes corrective actions for you, and alerts you via your smartphone when things go off track. You can know how your aquarium is doing -- instantly -- from anywhere.

The APexEL manages equipment (lights, pumps, filters, ATO, etc.) on your tank with simple setup and an easy to use app. The unit can track your manual test results, maintenance, livestock purchases, and tank observations to help you correlate issues in your aquarium.

The ApexEL can take the place of many costly and cumbersome components such as light timers, heater controllers, pump controllers, etc. Plus, it's expandable – add more monitoring, control features, and specialized Apex-ecosystem hardware as your needs require.

The ApexEL is iPhone, iPad, or Android app controlled, and also works on PC or Mac using any common web browser. Includes reliable, built-in WiFi. Controlled using Apex Fusion, a cloud-based site that lets you access your ApexEL from anywhere!

The Neptune ApexEL comes with one EnergyBar 832. The Energy Bar 832 has eight individual, 7 amp relayed outlets. Each individual outlet can also monitor and detect power usage in amps or watts, letting you set alarms for malfunction pumps. light, and heaters. Each EnergyBar 832 also has two 24VDC accessory ports. The all-new mounting system on the EnergyBar orients the power strip in the correct direction keeping cords neat and the outlets have wider spacing.

The ApexEL is easy to setup and use.
