Pretty much endless for a reef tank but you can do all sorts of amazing things even with a ceph tank too. Just think.... you get a critter carrier with live mysis, in it and a dosing pump, or a solenoid driven crab version. You could could then tell it when to "dump" and watch it all on a webcam from your phone... Not to mention it can automate about every feature of your tank you can think about like water change ect. Also give you monitoring and alerts for the common parameters.
Not trying to say you need one by any means and they are pretty expensive but it was my best investment when I had a reef tank and should come in pretty nice now.
Edit: also I just got an invite to visit the central campus aquarium and I'm pretty excited. They apparently have a cheap way to bread mysis for their specimens which I will try to learn all I can on. Not to mention the largest high school saltwater aquarium.
That thing is sweet! The kelvin, par, lux and nh3 would be [email protected] lol. Yea and @JingoFresh the main reason I got my controller was to avoid another heater meltdown. It worth the peace of mind to me just for that and knowing I can expand on later if need be. Reefkeeper also makes a decent one that can do ph and temp for a much more reasonable price, 100$ I think, that will shutoff your heater if it gets stuck in the on position. Hey @DWhatley can that the seneye reef control a powerstrip and shut off or adjust frequency? That and the monthly charge for connectivity are the main difference I see between the mainstream controllers and this guy. Have you tried floating it in a ceph tank ?@JingoFresh, check out the Seneye system. There are others out there as well but a long time TONMO member in England has started working with this company so it is the one I have seen the most.
@sean1, PLEASE report in on the mysis technique. Keeping mysis alive (and spawning) for newly hatched cuttlefish is something we have not been able to get a good grip on and any new techiniques would be most welcomed.
