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.

Two Major Problems

PROS
Great light for coral
CONS
Absolutely no moisture protections.
REVIEW

I love these lights and the control ability of them. They give off just enough shimmer that doesn’t overtake the views. Easy to control use and set up. Highly recommend these lights to anyone in the reefing community
