I have an apex lite
older version of apex, that does most everything the new one does minus wifi out of the box but can be added externally.
What you want/need to know?
Would you do Apex classic over Reef keeper lite? Remember...simple

I hope competition picks up and controllers become more affordable. Mindstream is out there now so hopefully they put a dent in the industry. I can’t afford one either and I feel like I could actually buy one if I really really could justify needing it enough to splurge on one.

I'm going to be honest, my budget just won't allow that to even be considered.
No worries, I wasn't sure what your budget was and for new controllers $240 is about as low as it gets.

Between the RK and the Apex Lite I'd give the edge to the Apex...

The new tank will have so much equipment, I feel like it will be a plus. It doesn't have to be fancy, just functional and simple to use.

Almost everything we get is 2nd hand. A lot is 3rd hand.

I got an apex lite with display controller an extra dc8 powerbar, temp & ph probes. Used for under $250
I can Timer/control/monitor temp, ph and return pumps, wavemakers etc all on 16 outlets.
But it's expandable to leak detectors and orp probes and water level float switches, webcams etc.
