    I'm looking into some options to automate / remotely access my tank's parameters. Could anyone tell me which controller would be a good interface to do this with? I currently am running a Neptune AC jr on my 60cube and I can get temp and pH from this, however, i'd like to be able to get my calc and alk readings as well. Any suggestions on how I could set this up so I could monitor it from work, my phone, etc?? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You can upgrade to an AC3, APEX, or RKE. All 3 units are network accessible, and will monitor calc and alk.

    Good to know. I may have to look into going that route. I would like a controller that has more comprehensive parameter readouts so that I can track more of my parameter levels in one shot without repeated testing.
