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
  • Fixtures come Wi-Fi enabled

Q
Why does this unit produce less par then the ecotech radions x15 when they use the same types of leds?
Comparing par levels?

A
Great Question. The AI Prime has 15 LED's and rated at 60W. The XR15W Pro has 23 LED's and rated at 95W. The combination of more LED's and higher power allows the Radion fixture to produce more light and therefore more PAR.

Low PAR/PER output. Good only for LPS tanks.
REVIEW
I have two AI Prime HD's on my 48" tank. These lights are good for LPS tank however do NOT put out enough PAR/PER for SPS without doubling the amount of lights or supplementing with T5's.

AI Prime-After 2 years of use
reviewerbadge
PROS
It is wifi enabled so you can use your android/apple app to control the light settings.
CONS
Not a con I should say but areas of improvement could be the pivot ball that you tighten to a set position of your choice. The problem is the supplied bearing is plastic so if you over tighten it, the plastic bearing breaks.
REVIEW
I've had my AI prime for 2 years on a Fusion 10 Nuvo by IM. It is well built solid construction, very compact and easy to use.

REVIEW
Needed to replace a pricey set of 2 skylights for my Nuevo tank, which broke in just 2 years-- the bulbs and parts -- so I was looking for a single more advanced lighting system for my tank and this one is awesome! Looks beautiful and minimal and modern and I love how you control it with an App.
