I just got the new Apex A3 Pro. The temperature probe does not look like any of the pictures or videos. Now I'm wondering if I was supposed to remove the cap? All the marketing shows a different probe.

Just looked up the A3 on BRS. They do show a different probe, but the probe you have is the same one I have on my classic, and the same probe they supply with the "new" apex, and apparently on the newer A3 now too.

Agreed. It threw me off. Same one I have on my other tank. Gyp! But not the end of the world. :)

On another topic, the ORP probe leaked in the box. I opened a support ticket for that one.

The buildup around the probe is typical and nothing to worry about

Mine seems to be working fine. ORP is low in both my tanks, about 250's. Not going to worry about it, 'cause I don't do anything to change it. I figure it is what it is.... I do care about PH and temp and those I cross check once a week. Otherwise I'm happy with the A3. I do like eliminating one FMM module.

Don't worry about the ORP number to much, its more about establishing what is "normal" then watching for abnormal. FYI, if the ORP is trending opposite of your PH then its probably working correctly.
