Oh yee with little patience ..... and it wont be 2 years until September ........ so there.
also very cool to stand there with my i-pad and turn the lights on/off or control anything on the tank. With lights full ON the Apex says they're pulling a little under 3amps (300watts+/-) and I should be able to dim them a lot when I get my PAR meter and do final light balancing with water in the tank
It is the I-pad app for the Neptune Apex controller. You can download it for free from the Apple App Store but it will not do anything until it has an Apex controller to communicate with.
I've been playing with the dimming controlls today and have the brightness set at what looks to be high light freshwater levels and the lights are pulling 1.1 amps. .... How about 0.4 watts per gallon for a high light tank for LED efficiency.
I love that this build is well thought out and the OP is patient. For those who think it took like long time, just unsub from the thread and then look at it when it's finished and voila, you can see it all at once. I really don't understand the big deal.
