AquaMaxx Prism LED Light Fixture

Please make a selection

Cost. Coverage. Color. Control.

We carefully weighed all of the motivating factors that influence your decision-making when choosing a reef aquarium light with the all-new AquaMaxx Prism.

We took everything hobbyists loved about our first aquarium light fixture, the AquaMaxx NemoLight—the sleek and slim design, easy customization and control, and unbeatable price—and improved upon them.

The Light

The Prism is remarkably thinner than the NemoLight, measuring a mere 0.43" thick! Like its predecessor, the Prism has a smart aluminum unibody design that is passively cooled so no loud cooling fans are required. The Prism is more powerful—24 Watts compared to the NemoLight’s 18 Watts. We’ve added more color temperatures, too, increasing the number of different colored diodes from 4 to 7. We also added a third controllable color channel, making it easier than ever to dial in that 10K white, 14K white/blue, 20K heavy blue, or custom look of your choice.

The Controller

Perhaps the Prism’s biggest advancement is its controller. No longer built into the fixture itself, the Prism has a small external controller with 2 buttons and a digital display that shows the current time, light intensity, storm mode, and ambient air temperature. There is no need to buy an additional controller to use all the features this fixture has to offer!

With 6 set points— dawn, sunrise, midday, sunset, dusk, and night—of customizable light intensity, you’ll be able to gradually ramp intensity up or down between points to simulate the look of a natural sunrise, sunset, and even moon light.

Lightning mode has also been enhanced. You can now control when storms occur in a 24 hour period, how many storms will occur during that time and how frequently the storms appear.

LED Layout

The AquaMaxx Prism has 64 high-quality 0.5 Watt LEDs in 7 colors distributed in 3 controllable channels, allow you to dial in the perfect color spectrum to fit your tank’s exacting needs.

The Tank Mount

There is no need to purchase an expensive sold separate tank mount to put the Prism over your aquarium. The included mounting brackets are slim, adjustable, and easy to install. It is similar in style to the tank mount for the NemoLight, only we’ve removed one of the legs to give you more of an unobstructed view of your reef without sacrificing the stability of the fixture. The mounting brackets lock to stay safely in place on the rim of your tank.

Built by Hobbyists, For Hobbyists

Our mission at AquaMaxx is to create high-performance, low-cost solutions that are easy to use and require little to no maintenance. The Prism stays true to the ideals we established back in 2010 when the company was founded. Our LED lights truly give you a lot of bang for your buck! We think you’ll be delighted with the way your corals fluoresce and grow. Please tag your tank with #aquamaxx on social media so we can follow and share your build!

PROS
controllability and colors
CONS
Setting the lights up is a bit of a pain with no back button.
REVIEW
I've had this light on my tank for a couple days now and can say I'm thoroughly impressed with it. The price point and the light itself with the controller have been awesome! Corals look great so far and I couldn't be happier.

PROS
Customizable, easy interface, attractive, desent light output, not too hot
CONS
disco effect, arm brackets arent very stable
REVIEW
You get what you pay for. Does okay for the price. Grows corals okay. My euphillia in particular do pretty well under it. Spectrum doesn't blend that well so it discos at the bottom of the tank. Its slim, attractive, doesn't run too hot, and perfect for smaller nanos.

Great light, amazing value.

PROS
Color spectrum adjustability, 24 hour ramp timer, ease of setting. Price.
CONS
None so far
REVIEW
For the price you won’t find a better light with it’s features, and color spectrum adjustability. I bought a 24” for my IM 20, and a 13” for my IM 10. The light seem like they were made just for those tanks. The 2 button controller is as basic and simple as it gets, a little clumsy at first....Read More

PROS
Design and timer function. Easy to use and set up
CONS
Sunrise setting starts too early unless running at 000%
REVIEW
I recently purchased the Aquamaxx prism for my 36 gal bowfront reef. I don`t have any high light corals so I can't say whether it would be powerful enough for those types of coral. My mushrooms and star polyps love the light. I have a RBT anemone and it looks amazing under the new light. It is very ...Read More

REVIEW
I have it up and running, but my tank is still empty until we put hardwood in, so this is just a partial review for now. I like the slim design and the easy assembly. It is impressively bright for its size! It has a very wide range of colors, intensities, and combination options. The push-button pr...Read More

PROS
Great beginner light, doesn’t break the budget.
CONS
Blue LEDs are a bit bright when in night mode. Even when it’s dialed down to the minimum intensity.
REVIEW
Simple light, upgraded from an innovative marine skylight. Got tired of plugging and unplugging, so I decided to get the Prism. Small learning curve programming the system using two buttons. Night setting is a little bright but helps out when I stumble to the kitchen to make my morning coffee. Trans...Read More

Aquamaxx Prism LED

PROS
Good Price, Sleek Design, Easy To Use Controller
CONS
There seems to be a lack of instructions; some parts, like the controller, are quite flimsy and do not seem very durable.
REVIEW
A good LED for the price, but obviously lacks some of the quality you would see in more expensive fixtures. It will probably grow LPS and looks very sleek over a tank.
