It's finally here!

Thanks to @dave57 for asking us to double check some AI Hydra26 and Hydra52 settings that he found. Not only did I check those numbers from THIS POST but I also checked the settings we used on the Prime to see if they were comparable.

Check out what I found!

I'm not in the reefsquad or a mod but I like how you guys team up and get the word out. Hats off to you folks, I will do the same if I see anyone needing AI help. :)

This is so amazing. Having the access to the equipment and taking the time to answer these real questions is great!

Hear you go
26 HD:
UV - 117.98% (ie. max)
Violet - 101.27%
Royal - 82.34%
Blue - 64.64%
Green - 5.54%
Deep Red - 5.16%
Cool White - 19.03%

Something like this
Wow, do you keep peak intensity for 12 hours? What kind of tank are you running and how many 26’s do you have? I’m getting sub par growth but I’m only running peak intensity for 4 hours with 2.5 hour ramp up and 2.5 ramp down.

No I’m not using that. It was only to show the AB+ numbers from BRS. But it was 8 hour peak with 2.5 hour ramp

How come my Hydra26 non hd wont go past 100%? Using apex as controller.
Thats the difference with the HD models. Basically the Hyper Drive will allow you to push the power from colors that aren't set as high to the other, expl- Red at 15% has some available power that you can send to the UV to go from the 100% up to 120%. **not the actual % numbers, just an idea of how you able to go above 100 on the HD**

I have many of the Hydra HD programs saved, PM me and Ill send the ones you'd like. Also AI website has some listed that you can download from them directly, plus there are other like the AI SPS AB+ program that many use and the BRS Full Power Settings floating around the forums. I saved most of the setting files that I have ever seen with positive feedback on performance.

At the very bottom of the Aquaillumination website under the light sciences menu select signature series link and it will take you to the area where you can see a few of the most prominent settings and you can download them from there.

Makes sense. Without the capability of ramping its colors past 100%, how close is its performance to the HD's AB+?
 

Would you be shocked by today's reefing hobby if you had just returned after a long period of time?
