“Great Addition”
5
5.0
I required more reach in the corners for my SPS dominated Reef Tank and already having the Hydra52's programmed and running for about 2 yrs. now, the addition of the Hydra26 was a perfect match with the 6" Extension. I installed and configured them in minutes. Great PAR and reach. Well built a...Read More

Excellent build quality. Compact but powerful. Two units flood my 36" long and 24" deep tank with plenty of light, (running at 60%, 10" above water surface). New controller allows great flexibility and precise tuning of light color, intensity and scheduling. 5th star held back, for la...Read More

“Excellent!”

5.0
I don't usually rate something as "Perfect" but these lights truly hit all the marks. They are very well engineered and the output is blinding! I purchased 4 of them for a mixed coral reef tank (LPS & SPS) with 60"Lx27"Wx22"Tall dimensions so I would have the coverage ...Read More

“Great Upgrade from Sol Blue”

5.0

The spread is much better than the 40/70 optics on the Sol Blues, with no hot spots. I have two on a 46 gallon bowfront perpendicular to the front, about ...Read More

“need better instructions”

4.0
The light is great so far but the instructions and paperwork that came with the product are lacking. It was not clear and took some time with trial and error to program. Also it makes no sense that this is called wireless because you have to have the remote control plugged in. The control does not ...Read More

“very excellent”

5.0
This lighting system is perfect. The wireless controller accessory is a must. (I never write product reviews, but I had to for this one). I have a 29 gallon cube aquarium, and it's more than enough. A bigger aquarium may need the FiftyTwo. It is good to experiment with the colors. I tu...Read More
