Dossing with a controler, or Not?


New member
Converting my FOWLR to a Reef. As I'm now adding corals (sps-lps-soft) and then a clam or four. I want to add a dosing pump system for the basics, calcium,Alk,Mag. Was looking at the 4 pump Jebao dosing pump. I have two Jebao wave makers and three 120 watt dimmable Chinese LED fixtures (dimming with rheostat).
Down the road, or now as I reseach, maybe Next week I was planing on a controler for the system.
It seems my existing equipment is not very comptabl with an Apex system.
Does this ring true?
Not sure what the benefits would be to automate?

You can use BRS dosing pump with APEX. BM does not need a certain extend unless you want to have more strict control. :)
The benefit of automate is amazing.......! I have tried manual dosing and you know 1 of the days you will forget.....:)
