Comments: This product is wonderful. The control it gives an aquarist over flow is terrific. I thought my Vortechs were the shnizzle before, and with automatic Nutrient Export modes in the middle of the night my tank has never looked better. The only reason I don't give 5 stars is the directions are terrible.

Comments: The WXM module was a christmas gift, and a welcome addition to my tank. I have a 36 gallon bowfront with 2 MP10ES-W's. In the past I had to manually do everything, and if I wanted to change modes, it involved more interaction with the Master MP-10 (had them in a master-slave setup). For those who are familiar with the Vortech pumps, you know that the setup isn't a straight forward process. My only issue with the WXM is it's initial setup. As with all of the 'programming' associated with all things Neptune, it's a wee bit of a pain and there is a learning curve. My system FINALLY recognized the module on the 3rd try. When it did, I then had to go through the programming. This is the reason for the loss of half a star. Once it's all programmed, it's a great addition to the tank, and a perfect 'companion' to any Vortech pump. Now my flow is awesome...it's dynamic, changing according to what I programmed so I can spend more time looking at the tank and less time trying to readjust it.

Comments: Product is Top Notch! Takes a little research, but once you get it you'll wonder how you made it without one! Controlling 2 Kessill 360's, 2 Vortech pumps, skimmer, and main pump right now with more to come!

Comments: When connecting a MP40 to the WXM following the procedure is confusing. The procedure to connect it is 4 pages down from where you download and update the firmware. Which is at the start of the connection procedure. You have to connect it then go and update the firmware.

Comments: The setup might be a little bit tricky at first if your not familiar with vortech pumps, but pretty easy just take your time. And if your having trouble, Paul at neptune systems will help you out programming it if your apex is connected to the internet! Now setting up custom pump modes throughout the day, night, and feed modes is all automated and super easy!!

Comments: If you have an Apex and a Vortech this is a must have. No more manually changing modes! This thing works great, a little bit of setup/programming on the Apex and I have nicely timed, random flow throughout the day and auto night mode - fish and corals are loving it as much as I do!

Comments: I have a bit of an issue with the WXM downloading the firmware from the Apex so that I could update my two vortechs, but unplugging the module a few times and everything was great. The manual that is included with the unit is pretty good to. Overall I am very happy!

Comments: Not too sure what took me so long getting this. No more resetting night mode and now can control the MP10 ES through my iPad or and web enabled device. If you want to change the pump set up, now you don't have to fool with the colors. Setup was easy too. This is a must have!
