It’s a reality now. ProfiLux has miniaturized their aquarium controller to offer the most essential controls at a very affordable price. Is this a game changer? Probably not but it does give new aquarist an entry level option for a controller.
The New ProfiLux Mini Wi-Fi Controller is an awesome aquarium controller; yes a mini controller with a sales price in the 200s.

What I like about this GHL controller is that its very slim and compact.
This makes it easy to mount it in tight spaces. The onboard screen is also a plus.
I don’t understand why all other controllers make you buy a separate screen. All in all this is very a nice product for those looking at an entry level aquarium controller.
