The Aqua Illumination Hydra TwentySix HD combines full lighting control with efficient power consumption in a sleek fixture. The TwentySix HD comes packed with 26 of the latest LEDs from Cree, OSRAM and SemiLED. The LED array uses custom-designed 80° lenses for color-blending and light diffusion.

EcoTech Radion Gen3 Specifications

This cool-running fixture uses no more than 95 watts, making it a cost-effective way to light up a reef full of SPS and LPS corals. The small fixture size makes it perfect as a single unit above a Nano tank or used in multiples over larger aquariums.

EcoTech Radion Gen3 Specifications

The Hydra TwentySix is more than a slim, powerful LED light for reef-keeping. The Hydra’s HD power supply sends unused power from dimmed LEDs to the LEDs that are brighter. This feature allows the Hyrda HD to maximize light output in the color spectrum of your choice.

Controlling one or more Hydra HDs is easy. Any iOS, Android or internet-connected device can be used to with the myAI app. myAI gives you full control over color, intensity and scheduling, anywhere in the world. You’ll even be able to watch your reef with a Nest Cam or Dropcam! The TwentySix HD comes in your choice of black or white.

Q
What is the best way to mount this on a rimmed tank?
I have a 72x18x20 tank. I think 3 of the Hydra 26 is needed, but I'm not sure what I need to mount it. What is recommended?

Thank you for your question. Aquaillumination offers pretty good options for mounting their Hydra HD Light fixtures. You can look at their Aqua Illumination HMS Tank Mount Double Arm Kit (Item# 3Z18082) it can be mounted in tank with a maximum thickness of 1.125". Then you can run an HMS Tank Mount Rail across the tank to mount the lights. Or you can hang the rail using the Aqua Illumination HMS Hanging Kit (Item# 3Z18172)

Q
What would it be the mounting bracket for this lamp and aFusion 40?
I'd been searching for a mounting system for my IM Fusion 40 using the AquaIllumination Hydra TwentySix HD LED Fixture - Black and all I found is the HMS Tank Mount Bracket item 3Z18092, it looks like I'll still need another item to hold the lamp. Could you guide me to what I need to mount this fixture to my tank? or other complete options. Thanks

A great option for mounting the AI Twenty Six to a Fusion 40 would be the AquaIllumination HMS Tank Mount Sinlge Arm Kit (3Z18072)

PROS
Amazing control of intensity, color balance and scheduling. Configuration files can be saved, downloaded and uploaded. Over 1.5 years with now glitches or other issues. One of the better UV ranges on the market for the price.
CONS
Documentation for up/downloading configuration files could be better. Difficult to dial in the right intensity and color balance for a newbie.
REVIEW
Although the documentation leaves a bit to be desired, this is a great light. I control, set and save programs from my mac, which I did until I got the lights dialed in so the corals were happy and I got the colors to really pop. My tank never looked so good. Because you have so much control, gettin...Read More

I have one of these lights over my JBJ RL45 tank using the AI Flex mount and I really like it. My corals have responded great.

Not sealed, building quality could be more polished
REVIEW
I am not completely impressed with the build quality as it does not seem polished. The app is good and easy to use and the lights also appear to be pretty good as my corals seem to enjoy them. So far I haven't had issue like some others so I am happy
