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
I have a 220 gallon reef tank and looking for a new light, what do you suggest? Tank is 72 inches long

Q
Would one of these work for a 93 gallon cube 30 x 30 x 24 ? If not which would you recommend. Tank will have some sps and lps

You may want to look at the hydra52. It is for 30x30, the hydra26 is 24x24 so you may end up with dark spots around the edges.
