Great lights By Tom on 4/21/13Tom would recommend this product to a friendLove the sunrise and sunset use with Neptune Apex. I'm not sure if the fish like the storm but I think it's cool. Have I have four on my 125 gal mixed tank.
Amazing lights. By bigdeptex on 4/3/13bigdeptex would recommend this product to a friendI bought these due to the fact that these lights would save me a ton in the long run. They put out amazing colors and my corals couldn't be happier.
good By Dustin on 3/31/13Dustin would recommend this product to a friendI love these lights,they really make the corals pop and are easy to instal and control. i have had some bleaching issues dialing in the inensity, everything is good but the only con for me is it can bleach your corals easy and its hard to dial inn.other than that i love em. i have 5 lights over my 300 gallon mixed reef tank.my sps love the lights.lps and some softies not as much but still fine tunning.

Rapid Who?!? By Tony on 3/26/13Tony would recommend this product to a friendWhen I got back into this hobby, I purchased a DIY LED kit for my 90g tank, and after spending 8 hours soldering, I was not happy with the color or options that I had with the kit. IMO, it's $500 out the window. Do yourself a favor and skip the DIY and get these, you will be money ahead.
With the DIY kit, my corals would open, but not like they should. the light was plenty bright being cree led's, but the coloration of the corals left a LOT to be desired. As soon as I put these on, EVERYTHING opened up like it should and ONLY at the intensities posted below! Not the 95% that I had the DIY setup at.
White = 65%
Blue = 60%
Royal = 60%
With that setup, the corals look amazing, the shimmer is great, and everyone that sees the tank loves it.
There was an issue with the storm function, but I will cover that under the "New Controller" review since it had nothing to do with the lights themselves.
IMO, get these lights. I have 2 of them over my 90 with everything from Monti and acro, to a huge colt, to shrooms to zoo's, and everything is LOVING it. Best investment yet!
great light By jordan on 1/15/13jordan would recommend this product to a friendi have one over my 60 cube dont even have the light at 100% and have great lighting all over the tank
Awesome LED fixture, if you're not interested in DIY. By David on 1/10/13David would recommend this product to a friendI've had my LED fixture for two and a half months now. I purchased it for a 40 breeder (36 inches long) and hung it parallel to the tank vice perpendicular, which is what AI's website recommends. I did this initially because I only intended to keep one unit over the tank. Now, after two and a half months, my focus has shifted to an SPS dominated tank. Now that I'm heading that route, I would absolutely recommend that you follow manufacturers recommendations and get one unit for every 12 inches of coverage ( length-wise).
I have seen a decent amount of growth from acropora, montipora, seriatopora, various zoanthids and a slew of LPS.
That being said, I would do the research and see if this system is best for you. There are a ton of different systems out there, some including red, green and UV LEDs. This system contains none of these. You can build a DIY unit of better performance at a comparable price.
Love this fixture By Kevin on 12/27/12Kevin would recommend this product to a friendThis was recommended to me by a friend and I am amazed by it. I had that post purchase jitters due to price but it was worth every penny. It was easy to set up looks good over my rimless tank and the lighting looks amazing. I have been running thunderstorms every night since I got it !
great for the most part By Joey on 12/19/12Joey would recommend this product to a friendI love almost everything about these lights except for the spread I was hoping to only need 3 on my 6 foot tank but thinking a 4th will be needed for better coverage. I LOVE the thunderstorms
Beautiful lighting By Vitiock on 11/1/12Vitiock would recommend this product to a friendBeautiful lighting with independent control over all 3 LED types. The Pendants them selves look really nice and makes it possible to display them outside of a cabinet environment. However it really needs a controller to shine.
Extremely happy my friend recommended these! By Terrie on 10/27/12Terrie would recommend this product to a friendI purchased a set of 3 of these with the mounting rail, hanging kit, and AI controller for my 125 gallon tank. I quickly realized I needed one more for sure. It's recommended 6 for this size tank however I'm confident 4 is going to do the job just fine! They are expensive but worth it! I might in the future go ahead and get two more just b/c it's the recommendation for my tank size. In a very short couple of days I noticed great improvement with my corals and that's just with 2 lights (replacement and 4th light will be here in a couple days). I'll have to come back to provide feedback for the long term of these but I'm sure I'm going to be happy!
These were very easy to mount, hang, and set up! I was surprised how easy it was to set the controls up (there are multiple settings you can choose)! Great thing is it's also very easy to add more to them in the future if you choose to do so.
My hubby really enjoys the thunderstorm settings, I do as well! I almost rated this a 4 b/c the ONLY thing I would change about them is adding sound to the thunderstorm setting. But as fun as it would be that's not worth even a portion of a degrade in the rating!
One of the three modules didn't function properly when I received it. I called AI for tech help and they were quick to help out and diagnose the problem. I then contacted Bulk Reef Supply and Reid was a tremendous help and did get a replacement out right away. I am very pleased with the customer service at Bulk Reef!
Awesome product, clunky to install By lexin on 10/9/12lexin would recommend this product to a friendI picked up two of these bad boys and a controller for my 90g. I had a 48' 6 bulb t5 with LED's down the middle (so no canopy).
The hanging rails and cables didnt come with it, and the rails are pretty much mandatory for use. The 2 default mounting screws are poorly placed, leaving few other options. I ended up having to build a canopy (or pay $300) to house them. I used $3, 3/4" closet hook rails, instead of the shiny $50 option since they were going to be out of sight.
I opended them up to find that the heat sink on one had been badly scratched and bent (looked like drop on concrete) and the other had a scratch along the edge. Both had finger prints on the backsides of the lenses from whoever installed them. I ended up having to take both of them apart to clean them before I even got to plug them in. QC failed that one.
The default program for the controller is terrible (unless you like cooked coral), and programming it was a chore. I also found out that its very sensitive to movement. Just picking it up to look at it could cause the signal to drop and the lights start freaking out. So plan to mount it to something.
My corals all still look happy after a few days, and my water temperature has dropped about 3 degrees. I like the shimmer and the color temperature they provide. They output almost no heat and operate silently despite having a computer fan mounted in the heatsink. And maybe most importantly, my power usage has gone down considerably from the t5 and no more bulb changing!
Amazing lights! By Casey on 8/29/12Casey would recommend this product to a friendI absolutely love these lights. I have 2 over my 75G, and will soon have them over all my frag tanks/quarantine/180G. The adjust ability with the controller makes them way easy to adjust to your liking. I prefer the blues over the whites to give it more of a deep blue 20k look. I have every different kind of coral and my sps love them. Anybody not using these right now is missing out! Currently have mine set at 90/90/90% 14" above the water.
