Pondering what to do

    I have
    - RKE on my display tank (with Net Module), SL1, and float switches for ATO.
    - RKL on my nano. - I am using a JBJ ATO on this tank

    I also have spare:
    - 2 extra PC4'
    - 1 SL1
    - 1 ALC

    Then today, I purchased Austin's RKE (wihtout the net). It has
    - RKE
    - SL1
    - 2 PC4's

    I was going to use the new RKE to manage the nano, and also the frag tank I have sitting here, waiting to be setup. I could also use the SL1 for ATO's for both tanks. Sounds pretty simple, I just need to buy another temp prob (or can I use the one from the RKL??)

    But then I thought. Couldn't I make a 20 foot cord, and just run everything off of my display tank's RKE? If so, will that complicate things, or possible put my DT at risk? I see benefits to separating it out, but also to keeping it together.

    Running them off one rke would be awesome keep things simple. When I getmine up again I'm gona do some consaladating between systems.

    FWIW, I ended up making a 25+ foot cable, and connected everything together. Here is a pic of my main screen, if anyone is interested.

    I know RKE is different in a lot of ways to the Apex, but they basically do the same thing and I was at one point in a similar situation as you. I decided to run everything off one, and in hind sight it was a good decision. Less to manage and everything in one interface.
