The newest innovation in the Hydra Prime line from AquaIllumination, the Prime 16 HD Series brings more power and colour where you want it, plus the freedom to use your smartphone as a controller.
Prime 16HD Reef
The New AI Prime 16 shares the same full spectrum cluster and features as the Hydra 32 and Hydra 64, as a result the new Prime will be called Prime 16 HD as the new cluster incorporates 16 LEDs (+1 Moonlight) and the new TIR optic. At 55W this small but powerful light is perfect for tanks up to 20 x 20 inches or can be used in multiples on medium aquariums.
The Prime can be tank mounted via the special, adjustable bracket or can be hung from a single wire. The light is so well balanced that it can be tilted at an angle on the wire kit to direct light exactly where it is needed. Purchase your mounting kit here.
