    Does anyone have actual evidence of a lawsuit between SciTronix and Vertex? I just did a quick google search and found nothing. The only evidence I’ve seen is user comments in forums such as this, which are hearsay at best. Ditto the reports of bankruptcy.

    There is an article in Reefbuilders that I’d seen before, but as I read it again, it does make it sound like the people at SciTronix were the actual developers of the Cerebra V1 and Vertex was a partner used for marketing/distributing. Who knows? At this point about the only thing that’s clear is that SciTronix is separate and Cerebra V2 is being developed independently from them. The other thing to keep in mind is that since V2 is completely new hardware and software, when it does ship it will likely be a beta unit again.

    It will be a beta version, as vertex said on the forum that those of us with V1 will get first dibs on the accessories.

    This has been a drag, feel bad for them at Vertex no matter what happend.
    Glad I didn't fork out the kinda cash for the V1 like I did with the GHL line I run now.

    Your sure can be right and its dangerous to spread lies but this is the answer i got from one of german largest shops

    Hello,

    Vertex went in bankruptcy. No joke.
    We ordered red pipes from an other manufacturer, but they didnt arrive yet.
    For the white valves there is no real alternative.
    There are white china valves on the market, but i wouldnt use them.

    Vertex has a new distributor in Europe
    http://www.danireef.com/2017/12/21/vertex-de-jong-marinelife-distribuzione-europea/

    Maybe there is no longer a need for a German office now that the product has a distributor in the Netherlands.

    I'm sure this move would relieve them of an unnecessary tax burden. Would it not?
