Product Description

Color: Black

The AquaIllumination Hydra combines the power of the Vega and SOL in one package. Combined with the AI "New" Controller you have one of the most advanced aquarium led on the market.

Customer Reviews

Given that the AI site gives only an email address for tech support, I fire off an email about the app.

When replacing with these lights corals reacted somewhat to the change, it is recommended to introduce the intensity of the lights gradually.

You can set it to a variety of tropical locations to simulate their lighting, you can even program it to have storms, including lightning.

This AI Hydra is fantastic...I purchased two from this seller for my 75 gallon tank along with the controller. The best led light out there for your reef tank...it doesn't have the swapability (it has the perfect combo of leds including UV so why would you have to?) of the Vega but it appears to have better lenses...beautiful shimmering light..control...growth...this light is the best! The seller is great he delivers faster then anyone else supplying the same thing. It comes nicely boxed and brand new. Highly recommend.

Back in september I purchased this lights for my aquarium. I had in my room until last month when I finally decided to install it. Within 3 week of using it the power supply doesnt work properly. The lights keeps turning on and off.
I dont recommend this product for the price of it.

I love my Hydra and the spectrum options, but I am pretty disappointed with the director and they are a package. It does the bread and butter beautifully; creating a light program that lets you customize the intensity of each color option in your set-up over a 24hr loop. I think the coral acclimation option also works well. What it doesn't do very well is almost everything else.

The global weather option does not work at all. It doesn't matter what I search for, I always get two responses back, one in the Mediterranean and one off South America. The tech service, which is available only by email, suggested that I may have a browser caching issue and to not use IE. I'd like to believe that, except that I get the same result on my iPhone app, firefox on my work computer and firefox on my home computer. It doesn't really come with an instruction manual, rather just a sort of quick-start guide. The lack of thorough reading materials might not have been that big of a deal if my director had worked as clearly as the quick-start would lead you to expect. I tried setting it up the first night with my iphone, which worked perfectly well as far as setting up the network connection. However the iphone app itself returned an error message when attempting to register, saying my serial number was invalid. Given that the AI site gives only an email address for tech support, I fire off an email about the app. The next day I try again, but this time no LED. Again, another email. Turns out there is a known problem with the power cable and they have to ship me another one. Separately, there seems to be a considerable lag between when you change the cloud effect or lightning settings in the iPhone app and when it actually starts to happen.

The colors are beautiful. The only thing that disappointed me was the coverage, it covers an area of ​​about 18x18

I returned mine. They are great lights if maybe you pair them with some T5s. I had so many issues with them connecting to the Director and I also had issues with the fans. The lighting was a bit shallow and spotty. It just was not giving me the colors like T5s. I do miss the "Jimmy Hendrix effect" shimmer so I am getting some stunner strips to go with my T5s. Also, for that kind of money I would expect to be able to talk to someone instantly at customer support. I just could not take the e-mailing back and forth to diagnose problems with brand new out of the box $400 lights and $100 controller. Would have expected a replacement right away or at least a phone call to guide me through their troubleshooting.

I have tried power compacts, T5 and Metal Halides I have had the best results for my reef set up! I like the programmable controller other than you have to keep it plugged in to your computer or wall and when it comes time to updating the new software it is not really user friendly. maybe after I do it a couple times It will get easier?
OK so I am not shouting.... but I am putting this in caps hoping to get some comments!!!!
I AM CURIOUS WHAT PEOPLE WHO ARE CURRENTLY USING THESE LIGHTS HAVE THE DIFFERENT COLOR SETTINGS SET AT? INCLUDING UV?
Not sure what happened but my controller went back to factory setting which is 80% I didn't notice this with my naked eye and burned almost half my tanks corals before I realized this. So I am running all settings real low and things are coming back!
Any information would be GREATLY appreciated!

Overall a pretty good light (quiet, decent light spectrum, well manufactured) for a small to mid size aquarium (under 125 liters).

The two major problems I have had:
1. When the device arrived there was a sticker on the box - warning to download new firmware before use. If you are not ready to do some programming yourself using the command line, and to mount the new firmware and write new paths to replace the old firmware - then this is not a light for you! (see programming instructions about 2.5 min into A.I.s Youtube instructional video). Strange attitude toward customer service making it my problem to learn programming to use their product - why not just update the firmware at AI facilities before shipping?
2. Still have not figured out why I have to keep the controller always plugged into my computers USB drive to keep the aquarium lights on. When I disconnect the wireless controller from my laptop that the lights go off and it forgets its programming. As a hack fix I have purchased a separate aftermarket USB charger plug - so that the controller is plugged into a wall outlet at all times (I want to be able to take my laptop to work/downstairs/etc without the umbilical cord of the controller) - but there must be a better solution.
