Replaced 400w MH lights

I replaced two 400W MH lights with three Vega blues back in September. I used 20K Radium bulbs and was able to get a similar color from the Vega blue lights. I have a 290 gal SPS tank that is 36" deep. I have acropora, montipora, and pocillopora corals and they are doing great under the Vegas. I have less heat issues with the LEDs and I love the slow ramp up and down through the controller. The only problem I had was that one of the fans was defective. Support was very helpful in fixing the problem. I saw how the units are put together and it's a very clean design. I wish those lights existed when I bought the MH lights a few years ago.

AI Vegas…. Amaze

What can I say? Amazing LEDS Kudos to AI for making a much better looking fixture. I went with the vega blue, because I like the blues spectrum, I didn't mind much about the red/green color vegas. I've have heard people having a disco effect on sand bed depending on height with these green/red units. I have mine at 6 feet above water level and they look bright and really nice, currently running at 35% output(acclimation) it makes all my corals pop and I see polyp extending much more than my previous 2x MH 250 W. I have them set up over a 90 G tank using a 18 inch EXT rail with the hanging kit, both sold separately. I've had the 2 units for almost 2 weeks now, I know this company AI stands by their customers and are always helpful with any questions regarding their products. My brother in law and my LFS have the previous version ai sols, running for a few yrs. now with no problems at all. That's the main reason I bought these, because they are reliable. Hope this helps, for those who are looking into buying this great Unit.

I ordered the Aqua Illumination Vega (Blue) x2. The package was delivered in perfect condition. I am pleased to say the lights and controller were self explanatory, so the installation was a breeze. The lights will cover a 24x24 area, and are bright enough to keep sps corals. Since my order has arrived my corals have really taken off, I love how easy the timer and lunar cycles are to program. The fixtures are cool and have no fan noise, they are very slim. I am amazed with the quality of shipping as well as the high quality of thes lights/ controller. The only thing that is a pain is the fact that the controller must stay plugged in to a power source to make changes to the lights. But for me it's not a problem.
