freshwater aqurium contoller

what do you guy recommend for a good controller for a freshwater aquarium. I have Neptune apex running on all my saltwater aquariums. I just put together a new 180 gallon plated tank with Ultum nature substrate, a Fluval Fx4 canister filter and a Carbon doser regulator with a external co2 reactor. my lighting is 3 kessil a360 tuna suns

I guess my question is what do you guy think i need to really push my tank to the next level.

No way to tell. Don't know what level it is at now.

But sure would like to learn more about it. 180G planted got my attention.

You should start a journal with the details of the tank, along with pictures. I'm sure many, myself included, would like to see what you have going on.

And the more folks know about the tank, the better the advice and ideas you will get.

You could also consider building a reef-pi controller. I'm building one to monitor pH during CO2 optimization (I don't want the probes in the water all the time for aesthetic reasons). I also have a simple temperature probe that I use, which spits out data to my home automation system through MQTT.

Why not just add another powerbar and a few modules and your tank will be on to the next level.
