Power

Combining the control of the AI Vega and unmatched power of the AI Sol, the AI Hydra brings a new level of performance. Unlike the Sol Blue & White, the Hydra uses 80 degree lenses to provide uniform light output and color blending. At a maximum of 95 watts from the wall, it follows in the family’s efficient footsteps.

We Love the Visible Spectrum....It Just Isn't Big Enough

The Hydra fills the visible light spectrum with light to spare. AI set the standard in LEDs, and have taken them years of experience and customer feedback to provide an even wider spectral output with the AI Hydra by adding 415nm Violet and 400nm UV LEDs to the mix.

It Blends

The Hydra uses proprietary 80 degree lenses to provide uniform light output and color blending. AI`s latest lens design utilizes the same TIR (Total Internal Reflection) optical design while incorporating a diffuse exit surface to optimize color blending.

*Optional 50 degree lenses are available for those needing more penetration.

Wireless

With built-in wireless control capabilities you can connect wirelessly to any of AI`s Wireless controllers (required and sold separately) without being tethered to the light.

Control

Compatible with the AI family of wireless controllers, the New Controller (sold separately) is an easy-to-use set it and forget it solution. If you need more advanced control, our upcoming web-based Director solution can be used anywhere on the web or mobile devices.

Mounting

Compatible with the EXT Rail System of Rails, Tank Mounts and Hanging Kits. Learn more about the EXT Rail System.

“Nice Fixture”
5.0

The fixture works very well. The only issue that I have is the way they mount. It makes me a little nerves only holding on with two screws and on the rail system that goes along the top of the tank the screws can't even be tightened up. It would be nice if the controller had batteries in it. I call...Read More

“AMAZING!!!”
5.0

I have one Hydra mounted 24" off the bottom of my 50G rimless sapphire cube, and it has more than enough power for pretty much anything you would want to put in the tank. I would think a Hydra52 would be over kill. The full spectrum control is unbelievable! My Hippo tang looks radioactive as we...Read More

“Hydra's”
5.0

Just received my 3 AI Hydra's for my 150 gallon reef tank. In addition, I purchased the controller and the rails to mount AI Hydras to. In my opinion, Hydras should go on horizontally on the rails. Of course if you have a canopy like I do, you will have to remove the canopy, place the rails on th...Read More

But my SPS corals are not as colorful as they were with T5 lights. I have a mixed tank and all my LPS & softies love the ...Read More

“beautiful LED module”
5.0

I had 3 AI SOL's already but want some more choices on colors and some extra coverage in my tank. I thought about adding more SOL's but decided to try the Hydra, i love these. I have a reef tank and as long as you are careful with acclimating them to the LED's all is fantastic and vibrant. My...Read More

“Hydra LED Lighting”
5.0

The AquaIllumination Hydra LED Fixtures are well constructed and are easy to set up. I bought these to replace 3, 250 watt MH fixtures. I wanted to reduce my overall electricity consumption while adding color and functions, Storm, cloud, etc. I bought 3 for a 6' tank, make sure when you buy you e...Read More

“Exactly what I needed”
5.0

When the LED craze came out I stood back and watched, although I was tempted to get out and build one of my own. These days, I don't have the time to worry about building my own, so I decided to purchase an existing solution. Ultimately my top concerns (aside from PAR) revolved around controllab...Read More
