The Apex Classic is the original Apex introduced in 2009. Although it was first launched a number of years back, it still runs the latest Apex Fusion cloud software and is an incredible value. There is likely not another aquarium controller in this price class that will provide you more features, is easier to use, or has a larger and more active user base than the Apex.
Prevents catastrophes by monitoring key parameters in your aquarium, takes corrective actions for you, and alerts you via your smart phone when things go off track.
Monitors your equipment – ensuring it is operating correctly at all times – and lets you know when it’s not.
Tracks your manual test results, maintenance, livestock purchases, and tank observations and helps you correlate issues in your aquarium to the things that are happening inside.
Manages the full operation of equipment (lights, pumps, filters, ATO, etc.) on your tank with simple setup wizards and an easy to use app.
Takes the place of many costly and cumbersome discrete components such as light timers, heater controllers, pump controllers, etc.
Gives you the peace of mind to know how your aquarium is doing, instantly, from anywhere in the world.

The most successful aquariums are those where the owner has the most understanding of what is going in their little world-in-a-glass-box. However, the real key to enjoying this hobby is to do that without making it a full time job!
Owning the Apex is the best way to get you back to focusing on the things you love like your fish and coral, and less about temperature issues, pH levels, light timers, dosing tanks, vacation plans, etc.
The most important aspect of having an Apex though is the disaster prevention it provides. The Apex will notify you when things go bad, giving you time to take action and prevent an aquarium catastrophe.
Of course you also unlock the door to more advanced things such as LED dimming, variable pump control, auto top-off, calcium reactor control, ozone control, auto dosing of elements, auto-feeding your fish, and much more!
