View Full Version : Apex Jr. Question

04/16/2017, 07:33 PM
I think I know the answer but want to be 100% sure before I buy anything.

I have a brand new Apex Jr, I have a PM1 if I need to do PH or ORP (which I won't) this is on a nano.


Would you...

A. Buy another EB4 or...
B. Buy an EB8

I have a pump, heater, MP10wQD, AI 26 HD, Skimmer, Carbon Reactor. So a total of 6 items, would you save the money and just pickup another eb4 or run an eb8 with the current eb4 to move around the load.

I am fine with either, but wanted you professional opinions. I have a Auto Fish Feeder too, but will be buy the Neptune ATO when it comes out in a couple weeks, so I may need another power outlet.

Thanks in advance.

Personally I would pay the extra $40 and get the EB8, unless you specifically think you'll need the two extra switched outlets. You only have six items now, but like you said if you add in an ATO, a couple dosing pumps, a GFO reactor, maybe a sump/fuge light you're already at 11 and you've outgrown that second EB4.

I would go with the EB8, that way you can add other items later if you choose.
