    Just received the ai hydra 26hd for the setup might also get the aquatic life fixture to add t5s with it [​IMG]

    Right now I’m just waiting on my sump from 302aquatics so I can do the plumbing on the tank.. going red pvc on this one

    Went from a 20 gallon to a 60 cube myself! Love the footprint and size is great. Looking forward to your build thread!

    Sorry it took so long but here’s a few I snapped for ya. Haven’t really been doing much to it as we are anticipating another move within the month. But when we do I’ll be building a new stand and sump for it

    I love it, when I begin to upgrade I may debate getting the hydra or doubling up the primes. But I run it at 45% max so I have some room to build it up. Great starter light that got me into led's from my t5's
