Bought a second EB8 from a fellow reefer and got the cord to connect them but was cautioned to make sure I am using a passive of Aquabus cable or it will damage my APEX. How can I confirm that is what I have. just looks like a regular 3ft USB cord that I have

Not a problem. Standard USB cables work fine as long as they do not have some sort of power device in them that you sometimes find on long USB extension cables.

Just DO NOT plug one end into your Apex/EB/whatever and the other into something like a PC, UPS, power adapter, etc or something will get fried. Only plug your Apex controller and modules together -- never into anything else.
