The new Aqua Illumination Prime HD light fixture is a step up from the previous Prime LED fixture. Aqua Illumination upgraded the Prime to include their new HD power system. With the HD driver each LED can be individually dimmed or brightened. This means when some LEDs are dimmed the unused power is sent to the LEDs that most need it. This gives the Prime HD extra “punch” to illuminate your reef.

All this lighting power is contained in a compact fixture measuring only 4.8 inches square and 1.3 inches thick. This low-profile configuration is loaded with 13 Cree and semiLED high-quality diodes. The LEDs have a custom 80° lens that blends the colors and distributes the light evenly throughout the reef. The small size makes the Prime HD the perfect light for Nano reef tanks. Multiple fixtures can be used on larger aquariums.

Drawing only 55 watts, the Prime HD fixture is energy efficient and with minimal heat output. Controlling one or more Prime HDs is easy. Any iOS, Android or internet-connected device can be used with the myAI app. myAI gives you full control over color, intensity and scheduling, anywhere in the world. There’s even a special Acclimation Mode that reduces stress when adding new corals and fish! The Prime HD fixtures are available in black or white.

What we really like about the Prime HD LED Light:

  • Great lights for Nano tanks with soft and stony corals
  • Good-looking design blends into any room
  • HD power control maximizes the light output.
  • Versatile mounting options
  • Easily controlled with myAI

Q
What is the lifespan of one prime hd
Asked : Feb 19, 2018
By : Chris
 
 
 
A
Generally speaking, in theory, an LED diode has a lifespan of 50,000 to 100,000 hours. However, this may vary depending on your usage of the light fixture. I would say that you could easily expect anywhere from 4-7 years of life from the fixture. One thing to note is that the Prime HD uses active cooling, so the fan inside may effect the longevity of the unit more than the LEDs themselves.

I purchased this light for my daughters Nuvo Innovative 40 Gallon. So far so good, she really likes free app and ability to control the different colors of light to your specifications via WiFi.

So I have the XR15 G4 pro's on my 65 gallon. Those look good sure, but these AI Prime HD lights at half the price do extremely well.

Works great on a small footprint and nanos, really cool that you can ramp up certain channels over 100% while reducing other less desirable colors. All my soft corals and lips look great under these lights

No useful info regarding setting for proper spectrum.
REVIEW
I use this light on my Fluval Evo and it is perfect. Within a couple days of putting the light on my tanks the corals reacts positively by opening more than they ever had under the stock LED fixture that came with the tank.
