I have the LDK-FMM (leak detector) and would like to use the aquabus cable to connect the FMM to the Apex fusion, however, I dont know where it plugs in to since both apex aquabus ports are in use?

I was thinking it plugs in to the Apex fusion but both the aquabus ports on the apex are already in use, one is used to power the apex while the second aquabus port is used for the auto feeder.

How are other people hooking up the FMM when using multiple add on equipment ?

You can either connect the FMM to the second port on the auto-feeder, OR take the cable from the auto-feeder and plug it into the FMM, then connect the second port on the FMM to the auto-feeder (which is what I would do).

Every Apex module has at least two AquaBus ports, so you can never run out. They are meant to be daisy-chained together. You can plug any new module into any unused AquaBus port on any currently connected modules.

See my Apex Hardware Overview article for more details about all the available modules:

And if you're new to the Apex, be sure to read my whole series of Apex tutorials:
