AquaIllumination Classic Rail Kit Information




Mounting your lights on your tank is easy with the Classic Mounting Rails. The rails rest on your tank or combined with the Classic Hanging Kit make it easy to suspend your lights.

Our versatile Classic Mounting Rails allow you to place the lights above your favorite corals by simply sliding the lights along the rails. The rails can easily be sized for your specific tank, and once placed you may move the modules as you wish about the tank. Compatible with Sol, Vega, Hydra, Hydra FiftyTwo, and Hydra TwentySix.

Available in 12", 24", 36", 48", 60", 72" pre-cut lengths, or easily cut to fit your tank.

works with Hydra 26

Comments: very sturdy, now is shipping with 3 end cap sets to match the different AI light dimensions. With Hydra 26 you have to mount the fixture so the 2 pucks are perpendicular to the tank length. This will give good lighting coverage front to back, but less side to side. Hydra 26 is also now shipping with the screws you need to mount to this rail kit (I'd seen earlier reviews about needing to go to Home Depot for parts). I'm not using the feet, using hanging kit instead, so can't comment on that. Power wiring on the Hydra comes out the side of the fixture because of the orientation instead of the back like it did with SOL fixture so it is slightly visible from the front of the tank, no big deal to me, but FYI. Overall this is a good mounting system, very sturdy, no worries about lights falling into the tank!!

Adpters for Hydra26

Comments: Picked up a piece of aluminum flat bar 1"x36" from HD, cut 2 pieces of 9.5" and drilled a hole in the center, then screwed these pieces, on each of the mounting screws on Hydra26 (like an H shape), and only then was able to insert the assembly on the rail. Worked like a charm.

Comments: In the picture, this seem to be the best solution to hang your light safely and secure. It is not how it looks. When you adjust the light, you will hear a terrible screeching sound. The light does not hold very well. I recommend measure the distant you want your light apart and buy the ext rail. That is a much better option

Comments: Overall I am pretty happy with the stand. It is pretty heavy duty and my two AI Hydra lights hang on here nicely. It is sturdy and I have no worried about the lights falling over or breaking the unit. The feet that clip to the tank rim are really wide (maybe made for a bigger tank). On my tank they are so wide that I can't open my glass top without picking up the stand. Not a big deal, but thought I would mention it. There are two end caps you put on to help stabilize the stand, the bolts that you put in them have very large heads. If you put them in and then try to slide in the legs or your lights they won't fit because the heads are blocking the end channels. Makes it a real pain to add or remove lights to the rail system. I also wish they had a system where the lights went the other way across the tank, I think you would get better lighting coverage.

Comments: It works and looks good! I just would have liked them to give two different sizes (one for the hydra as well) otherwise it's easily rigged.

Comments: AI really no good for The vega lights. Sits right on the water so there are dark spots in the tank. Must be hung from ceiling at least 8 inches to have my 120 illuminated with two fixtures. Product is made nice though and marine depot is very helpful when u call for advice.

Comments: I ordered this rail kit for 2 new vegas, installation was simple, no instructions were included. It is made of good solid quality, except for the black sides which are made of plastic, but do seem strong enough to hold up. The only downside to this rail kit was the fact that it did not include 4 sets of screws for mounting the vega's onto the rail. From what I read at Aqua illumination website under FAQ. I found this, Does the Vega come with mounting screws? No, the Vega is designed to be used in with the EXT rail system. All mounting hardware is included in the EXT rail system. Can the Vega be used on my existing Sol rails? Yes, the Vega was designed to be backwards compatible with previous generation mounting solutions. However, the screws for the Sol may not be used on the Vega, the Vega can only be used with #10-32, no longer than 1" screw size. So now I have to make a trip to the hardware store. Minor set back, but for the price you'd figure they would have included the screws. FYI for those who plan to use this rail for new vega.
