    Hi guys
    what is a good controller to buy to control temperature? it will need to run heaters for now, but also a chiller possibly in future.

    thanks!

    Digital temperature display would be super cool as well!

    Hell, why stop now! Is there a recommended PH monitor as well? (Digital display again would be super cool!)

    I have a Tunze temperature controller which runs my heaters, very happy with it.

    I think millepora from Eco Aquatics sells SAGA temp and Ph controllers amongst others. Mekaeel is running some SAGA stuff I think.

    IKS Computer is an option. Can control way more than just temp, ph etc.
    All I do is feed the "kids" and clean the glass. Computer does the rest.
    Sms's me daily my tank info and sends me sms on power failure and when it comes back on, or if any probe is out of range which I specified.

    True, it is worth every cent. It controls my entire system. (PH, Temp, Redox, Calcium Reactor, light, top up and it even pulsates and controls my Tunze streams!!. The only other method will be to get a controller for every probe and this will end up costing a packet.
