    I love the WXM because it is so easy to use and reliable. But I hate the idea that I can't managed my G4 properly. Unless they get a lot of requests for an updated program from the freshwater users, they will probably not update for the Radion FWG4. What's the link to Alain B's video as I was told I wouldn't be able to see 8 channels.

    The only Radion that has 8 channels is the marine G4Pro. The freshwater G4P only has 5 channels. Updating the WXM firmware cannot change that fact.
    I'm not a Neptune support rep. Please do not send me PMs with technical questions or requesting assistance - use the forums for Apex help. PM me ONLY if the matter is of a private or personal nature. Thanks.

    The plant tank man: Saw the video. I went through all those steps with a support rep a few weeks ago. RussM is correct, my model will never see 8 colors.

    So I decided to just go with the Ecotech program as I wanted to utilize the new colors. When I was using the Apex, it wasn't using the warm white as I thought. I just got off the phone with Ecotech to confirm that my programming was correct and to help me with the moonlight programming. Now I am seeing a huge difference in colors between the G4 and G3. The G4 side is a lot brighter and the G3 side is not as bright and the colors are warmer. Even working with the Ecotech program, it would be very difficult to match both sides of my current setup. The plants under the G4 side are pearling like crazy and very little under the G3 side.

    I guess at this point, I will be thinking of upgrading my G3 to the G4 and not use the Apex until they upgrade, if ever, the Radion FW program.
