Neptune Systems has informed us that for the eagerly awaiting folks that would like to pre-orderÂ the Apex Aquarium Controller that your time is almost here. With confirmation of production units hitting the Neptune Systems warehouse pre-orders should start next week on the Neptune Systems website. We are expecting the first units to be shipped to customers less than 3 weeks from now which puts it smack dab in the middle of June. Our guess would be the week starting June 15th, but with new product launches this could be delayed for any sort of reasons. Retail pricing is still on track to launch at $499, which will get you most items needed to run a fairly large full scale reef tank.
