If you haven’t done so already, please read our Why Apex? page to get a high level view of why the Apex is so important to your aquarium.
The Apex Jr. System the perfect option for those that want to have the basic functions of a controller like light and temperature control but have a smaller budget.

With the Apex Jr. you will be able to not only monitor what is happening in your tank, but you will also have 100% control while at home, or away to do something about it!

THE APEX JR. – IT ALL BEGINS WITH THE BRAIN
THE ENERGY BAR – SO MUCH MORE THAN A POWER STRIP!
The Apex Jr. is so much more than a glorified power strip. In fact, this component of your aquarium controller equipment is far more important than most people realize – and not all controller systems are created equal!
It is obvious that this component is key to controlling things on your aquarium, but what is not so apparent is how it is critical to preventing catastrophe in your aquarium. Here’s how.
MoreThe Apex Jr. runs at up to 10x the speed of other controllers in its class due to its advanced processor technology (most others use 8 or 16 bit microcontrollers). It also has memory on board to store over a month’s worth of complete tank data in non-volatile RAM. Even with a power outage, your tank history and all configurations are safe.
LET'S START WITH CONSTRUCTION
Sure, like our competitors we could have gone with a slick, inexpensive plastic enclosure, but that would not provide you with the best protection against catastrophic failure. You see, plastic timer powerstrips and power bars used by some of our competitors can easily catch fire should saltwater enter them and cause a short. With our solid metal Apex Jr., if such a short did occur, it would be far less likely to spread to the tank or your home.
SOFT-START EXTENDS THE LIFE OF PUMPS
BUILT IN INTERNET CONNECTIVITY
The Apex Jr. is Internet-ready straight out of the box. Just plug it into your router and you are good to go – no software to install! This means that you can control your tank from any computer (or mobile device) in the house. There is no need, ever, to connect it directly to a computer to monitor your aquarium or update its firmware. And, once you set up external access via port-forwarding on your router, you can easily access your Apex from anywhere in the world via a web browser or via our iOS or Android apps!
