I have 4 Aqua Ilumination Hydra. The first model of hydra with 20 led per fixture with full espectrum controlled with a deviced similiar to an Ipad. Great lights that still workk after 6 years. the controller and these fixtures arent made anymore so the day the controller fails i will have to set new lights maybe will buy one of the new AI models.

Radions, and will likely be Radions forever. Unless something changes under BRS ownership for Neptune and their lights, the fact that Ecotech had unmatched customer service and support in the industry (pumps, lights, and powerhead) will always make them a winner in my book

@Kessil they've done pretty well for us @ the farm.... a little difficult to get 34 of them to cooperate on the WiFi but I would say that's a non issue for the @ home hobbyists.

As far as power, spectrum, form factor etc.... very nice!

Thank you @Sleeping Giant for the QOTD idea!

One piece of equipment that 99.9% of every saltwater reef aquarium hobbyist uses is LIGHTS! It's also no secret that the majority of reefers now choose LED lighting over other types of lighting. (not saying other types are not good options) But how many lights we have and what brand we are using are left up to our specific needs and taste! So let's light it up with some comments today!

1. How many lights (fixtures) do you have over your tank and what's the dimensions of your tank?

2. Which brand(s) of lighting are you using for your reef tank?

I have four AI EL SOLS which I just contacted AI about and they are giving a new Hydras64 at a great discounted price. I was going to buy Radion XR30’s but the deal they offered was fantastic. The customer service and support at AI was amazing highly recommend them. Now I know there are many lights out there and different prices. All will grow coral but for me it’s the support you pay for.

I'm running 2 AI Prime 16 HDs. I was using a Fluval Sea light when I first started to keep costs low. I upgraded to the Primes this last winter and the coloration and growth has greatly increased. Tank dimensions are 30 x 12 x 12. The spectrum I'm running is also below.
