I have a 46gl BF with two Koralia threes, a MAG5 on a CL, and a MAG5 for a return for flow. I’m looking at buying one of two things, An Apex Controller or a VorTech. My question is which to do first, the Apex or the Vortech? If I get the Vortech I will be removing the Koralia's and the CL. If I get the Controller I would be putting my new MH light with a dimmable ballasts and all the other toys that come with it, Temp and PH probes as well as my Koralia’s and the standard other equipment.

TIA

Both are great.

Get a controller first tho. There are too many benefits to it.

Then save your pennies and get a mp40 later.

Controller hands down is more important to stability and ease of use/maintenance, but a vortech is certainly not a bad buy either.

Thanks for the input.

As far as removing the CL, just to clean the tank up a little. It is a over the top CL because the tank isn't drilled. I figured with a VorTech that would give me plenty of flow adn in reef crest enough wave.

Just figured I should say I have both. And love both.

I highly recommend the MP40 but after you get a controller.

controller first. it will hold its value longer.
there were quite a few vortech black friday deals for as low as $330 new, so wait and see the price for used ones drop.

Yeppieeeeeee, my CoralVue SE 250W Finished Pendant Complete Retro Kit w/CoralVue dimmable ballast and Reeflux 12K bulb just came in. Now it's time to look for my controller :)
