It was good while it lasted. I liked having a backup temperature alarm to my controller, without having to pay for slides. Have no real need for the pH or ammonia monitoring that the slides provide. Also, the slide sensor light for my Seneye is stuck on. Which may or may not affect the pH and ammonia readings anyway. The temperature reading works just fine however and is consistent with my controller. The only time I could see myself using a slide again would be when on vacation, just to have that backup temperature indication when away. I do have a couple of slides that I could use just for that purpose.

Aye it's a shame really! I'm gonna continue buying the slides though, it's not a great added cost for the benefits in my opinion.

I am running a Seneye alongside the Neptune Apex and two separate heater controllers.

For about £8/month I reckon it's okay.

Yep, I received an email a few days ago about this.

You can still obtain the temp data if you jump a few hoops, by querying the device directly.

I did so a while back using some info I found here.

You do not get anything if you don’t pay a monthly fee even when replacing slides. So, basically all the slides I bought are for nothing

There is no monthly fee, just the cost of the slide.

That is essentially the same as replacing a test kit when it expires.

It's a pretty insignificant cost in terms of keeping a reef tank and less than a couple of cups of takeaway coffee a week.
