    Controller/Monitor?

    Looking for a controller/monitor that I can hook up to a PC. Would like to monitor temp, SG at a min.. anything else a bonus.
    Any suggestions?

    Neptune and Profilux are two of the top brands, both can hookup to networks etc.. and got a bunch more sensors you can add-on.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    I have a ReefKeeper2 that I really like. Mine is hooked up to my PC and I can view the temp and PH from work, as well as all the programmed settings (8 of them).

    If you like this one, buy it from the link below as it is cheaper here than from the actual manufacturer.

    Beleive me, I have thought about it. I just don't know where I would mount the camera without having to run a cable across an open floor. That's the only thing stopping me.

    I know someone that has the controlable web cam to watch his tank. He can adjust to to seethe sumo and back up to see the main tank. I gotta get one !

    I have the RK2. Great little unit at a very low price. The only draw back is that its not expandable.

    I also have the Profilux which is an amazing unit. If you can imagine it, it can do it. I really like that it is completely expandable so it grows with you in this hobby.
