Hydra 26 HD Lighting
Deluxe Reefer 170 includes 1x AI Hydra 26 HD LED modules
Aqua Illuminations has been producing LED lights for many years directly suited for sustaining reef tanks. The Hydra 26 HD is years of research and design wrapped up into a simple to use full spectrum LED module. The Hydra lights are WiFi controlled through the MyAi app that can be used on any internet connected device.
The mounting solution that Red Sea includes lets you attach the mount directly to your wall, or back of the tank stand. The hinged arm lets you rotate the light into an upright, and out of the way position for easy maintenance.

Going from the top of the Reefer system down to the bottom, the first thing you will notice is the crystal clear glass and elegant beveled edges. The second thing you may or may not notice is the slim overflow that houses all the drain and return plumbing to keep the water a constant level within the display tank and surface skimming while being super quiet and taking up a very small amount of real estate inside of the tank. The return nozzle is fully adjustable for to direct the flow where you need it, and the dual drain system keeps overflows from making any type of noise like a single drain design may encounter. The dual drain design has one main drain that includes a diaphragm valve for easy tuning and adjustments. The other drain is completely open to flow directly down into the sump in the event that the main drain gets clogged. If plumbing is one of the reasons why you have never wanted to install a tank with a sump don’t worry as Red Sea has done all the planning for you and there is no gluing needed to assemble and seal all the plumbing.
The sump includes a filter sock holder and sock to keep large pieces of debris and detritus from clogging pumps and other pieces of equipment. The water can then flow from the filter sock into the skimmer compartment where the water will keep a steady level to aid in the best performance in your choice of skimmer or any other filtration components that you choose to include can be placed there. The water will then flow through the final bubble trap and into the final chamber where the return pump (not included) can be placed to pump water back through the Reefer tanks return plumbing.
Integrated Top Off
When water starts to evaporate all Reefer systems include an integrated top off system and reservoir that can hold a few days worth of top off water to keep the water level, salinity and flow rates consistent throughout the tank.

Has potential, but... By Robert on 4/19/2017Robert wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI ordered his aquarium from a local fish store (not BRS). It took less than a week to arrive - this was great! I got it put together and set up and found the lights didn't work. I had to go through AI since they manufacture the lights used by Red Sea. AI finally decided they were bad, so they sent new ones - they sent them UPS ground - it took a week! In the meantime I noticed th sump had a crack. After sending pictures to Red Sea and getting them to agree to send a new sump, it has been a week and a half and I still don't have it. They ship with a company called Road Runner. Road runner's web site it was scheduled to be delivered today, so I stayed home from work to receive it (figured they'd require a signature) - well, they were a no-show! All I want to do is get water in this aquarium and get it running! The guy at the store I bought this said how great Red Sea is and that if there are issues, they are known to over night parts out to you.... Let me tell you, that isn't true. It has been a month and I still can't use my aquarium - BUT my credit card statement has come, so I can start paying for it!
