Reccomendation for a good electrical controller


Right now i have a timer for my lights and CO2. However, i was wondering if there was some kind of controller that someone can reccomend that can basically be multiple timers and perhaps also have features like toggle on and off. Thanks!

I can recommend the Neptune apex controller if you want something hi tech, they have a Jr version that is website based that can run 4 outlets independently. They can have temperature, ph, or switch controlled events. The lite on has a limit of 4 add ons. I have the light version and I am quite happy with it. Digital aquatics also makes a controller, I looked at it but decided I likes having an app to control and monitor my tank, without having to buy add on network modules.

I have two reef keeper lite units from digital aquatics. Rock sold units. Never had a problem with either one. Expandable if you need more than the basic unit.

I use the Apex controller with Energy bar 8. Can control everything from my phone.

I also have a reefkeeper lite. It's hard to beat for ~ $100. Never and any issues with controlling ph, temp or any various timers.

If you want the best and never have to buy another controller again, go with GHL Profilux.
But the others mentioned above will do.
