Basically yes, I believe ray proved that the ph controller can be a little bit more accurate. How ever most do not use them and have had great success, But If you have one use it. If you have a lot of experience you can also read the tank to see what it needs.

Here is something you cannot do without a pH controller!

Check out this regulator from
Iím looking at the 289.99 model.
It has a digital bubble counter and an integrating display. Once you set your pH, the controller always has the exact same level of CO2 in your tank. The integrating display tells you exactly (to a couple of decimal places) how much plant activity (based on CO2 use) you have. When you increase/decrease your light cycle, the integrating display will tell you how much change in plant activity that produces. When a plant gets sick, you will know even before it starts to drop leaves from the decline in activity! Is that great or what?

I already have the digital regulator. The next toy Iíll get is the one with the integrating display.
