    This is what happens when you spend too much time at shows, but it’s awesome!

    You seem to like it, so that's all that matters!

    For me grey and orange don't click, but nice reactor though

    Quite the reactor!

    Orange and grey ... well ... not really my thing either.
    But everyone is different.

    You know, Apex should come in custom colors. Maybe a nice Blue?
    :p

    That looks sweet. I’m thinking about getting a Geo myself. What is your plan for a feed pump and regulator?

    Makes me wonder if you disassemble the casing and give it a quick coat of Rustoleum for plastics will it void any warranty

    Is this going on your tank or is this a work related thing?

    I do think the orange + grey is great marketing though.
    Sure, it is not a usual go-to always well liked color scheme, but that can be a good thing.

    It is not like it is a bad color and disliked.
    Obviously it is very vibrant and stands out.
    Great for differentiating your brand.

    White and red, black and white ... so overdone.

    Well the original Apex was black, in fact it looked like a knock off of the ReefKeeper Elite that had been out in a wild for a while so I completely understand why they changed up the colors, something to make it stick out from competitors.
