    Hi Reef Angel guys

    I am contemplating getting this system.

    Could you advise if it is really worth it.

    Rand for rand this is the best value you can get.

    what would you like to know about the reef angel or how would you like to use it.

    That the million dollar question, I work away from home 3 weeks away a month. I am trying to automate my tank as much as possible. I am wanting to add dosing pumps to handle KH CA MG, I also like this WIFI iption where you can see you tank parameters while I am away. Would probably want to run everything from the Reef Angel. Heater, lights. Skimmer, Tunze flow pumps ect.

    What would you suggest.

    Then look at the reef angel plus with analogue dimming. with a wifi add on, thermometers and tunze cable, to start off with.

    this will allow you to monitor ph, top up, temp, and control the tunze pumps. As well a switch on/off 8 ports (these can be heaters, skimmers pumps flow pumps dosing pumps, lights anything you want on a timer of controller)
    The other things can me added on at a later stage

    The plus has more memory. so more options to program ;)

    Hi @ Damen

    Why does it sound confusing? there is 2 x versions, the Analogue and the PWM

    In both versions you have a memory upgrade, and its then called a + version

    Hi @Visser

    All our contact details are in our Sponsors Forum

    Drop Reef Marine Aquarium Customs - Marine Aquariums South Africa

    Also have a look at all the Reef Angel info in the forum

    Regards

    Jean

    I got a full demonstration from @butcherman yesterday and I really liked it. Will be getting one in the near future. Very impressive.

    Hi Guys,

    If I could as a quick question here. If I was to get a RA and I wanted to control Tunze pumps, but not lighting, as the led lights I want to order has a controller, would I need the PWN unit or the analogue?

    I'm very impressed by the RA stuff Butcherman has got going. And switching the skimmer on/off via cellphone is like magic.
