    Anyone using these settings on AI hydra 26hd's that are supposed to emulate the radion AB+ light schedule? ive seen a number of different .aip files that claim to be this but they are all different. Just curious if anyone has the original file and wants to share and/or has pictures of the growth and color they are getting from them. TIA

    I ran my Hydras at what BRS video said produced about the same spectrum as the raidons. UV-119% Violet-116% Royal Blue-79% Blue-80% Green-4% Deep Red-4% Cool White-19%. My few corals grew fine with it, but I don't have any SPS/high light demand corals.

    AI website has the signature series profiles available for downloading. Had to download them to my laptop, then email the file to myself , next open email on the device with the AI app, when opening the attachment had to select to share/open file with with myAI. HTH

    I have most all of the popular profiles saved in AI already so I should be able to send them to you or anyone else if you like.

    I personally have had great success with the AB+ 24”AWL on my tank. Tank is a 92 corner (quarter circle) that’s 24” deep, 2-26HD, with 1-1 1/2” sand depth, lights are 15” AWL. Mostly Rics, JB, and Bounces on sand bed, zoas and LPS midway, top mostly leathers and few Montis lost some of my other SPS in recent past but they were thriving in the top 20% of tank. Actually thought it was the lighting but my ALK got way to high.

    Hey @ADAM wondering which AB+ you using? BRS AB+ FULL POWER / SPS AB+ FULL POWER / SPS AB+ WITH RESPIRATION??

    Also do you if any of the schedules run for 12 hours?

    Would like to see the tank when i leave for work and when i am back.

    I tried that and it seem to mess things up, maybe I am doing it wrong. My poor fish and corals they are confused cause I cant find the right setting... lol I have a little of everything and I like seeing the blue at night so the colors pop and can enjoy them

    I have a AI 26HD on my jbj 45.. it is a new tank setup and looking for some light setup settings.

    I guess I want to know what is the difference between BRS settings and AI signature settings? It looks like AI signature settings has lower UV, violet, and royal blue.
