I have an apex classic and love it. Really let's you hone in on your tanks day to day health and also gives you tons of control with automating things.

In case you missed it, at MACNA they neptune announced an apex compatible water testing device for alk, cal, and may. This device will only be compatible with the new apex. If you plan on getting that, the unit itself will cost 500-600 over the cost of the apex. If you can do without that device, I would get a used classic, because there's about to be a flood of them to hit the market

I have the 2016 wifi apex and was a breeze to set up.
With the fusion even the classic was easier then a few years ago.
The updates of the modules or the system it self is just a push of a button. No more cables to connect to ur computer or anything.
When i first got it tho was disconnecting 2 times a day but i open a ticket with Neptune and they fix it same day. Never a problem after that.
I dont regret it.

What is your question is it whether or not to add automation and remote monitoring/control or if the Neptune systems are the best out?

We have done many Apex systems and right now is the best on the market. Now I would say it is not a necessary thing but once you have it you will not regret it and looking back wonder why you didn't do it sooner. The good thing is if you get the most recent version are able to purchase future add-ons without worry.

Theres good and bad reviews about everything
Wht works for some might not work for others. I think my used super reef octopus 6000 skimmer is the best ever. But i bet theres a few that disagree
I dont use filter socks some people swear by them. At the end is personal choice and experience.
My experience is nothing but great with the 2016 apex model.
But then again folks that weren't so lucky will disagree
Bottom line Apex 2016 is the best controller today. And great customer service !!
