    Big news for Reef Angel fans - the first aquarium open-source controller just released a relay expansion module so you can double the amount of sockets you can control from 8 to 16. The original 8 socket hardware limitation nagged some so it is good to see this module address it.

    Even so, being open source, amazing things have been developed for this controller - just take a look at what crank2211 released on 3reef over the summer. With the Reef Angel module and the soon to be released hub (next month) that will let you chain up to 8 of these modules for a mind-numbing 72 sockets - the sky is truly the limit!



    This module is available now for around $100. - On sale now for $89!

    I'm looking at picking one up but I want it to control my calcium reactor as well. I have been unable to find any info on reading PH under 7. Can this controler have 2 PH probes? Can it be set to read PH under 7? My goal is to run auto topoff water through my calcium reactor and then through my kalk reactor to raise the PH. If topoff water is not needed then it would circulate tank water through the reactors. This would save on CO2
