Includes brackets for Hydra TwentySix and FiftyTwo Lights.

  • Rails can slide for positioning

  • Clamps on tanks with rims up to 1.125" thick

  • Light brackets twist for perfect coverage

Product Questions

Hello! I am wanting to add two AI Hydra 52 lights over a Red Sea Reefer 250 via two of the HMS mounting arms. Would the weight of two Hydra 52's mounted to the glass with these HMS mounts be a cause for concern with the Reefer 250? Thank you for your help!
Question by: Renee on May 9, 2017 6:33:00 PM
Hey there,
The HMS mounts will work just fine with your Reefer and there should be no need for concern.

Happy reefing!

Full Details

The HMS Single Arm Mounting Kit is perfect for tanks that only need a single Hydra LED unit, or if you want to have multiple units without a rail running across your tank. The kit comes with mounting brackets for the FiftyTwo and TwentySix series of LED lights that can slide forward, backward, and also twist within the rails for the ideal position. The height of the mounting system can also be adjusted making it a great industrial looking mounting system for the Aqua Illumination Hydra LED lighting systems.


Between the HMS Rails, and the modular mounting brackets for the tank, and the light the HMS Single Arm can be fully adjusted to fit virtually any size tank from 10 gallons and up.



Max Tank Thickness - 1.125"

  • The mount works on rimmed tanks with minimal effort. By Ricksreefs on 5/4/2017

    So does the RMS arm work without extra help? YES. Is this the RMS arm? NO.

    You need to add shims or a plastic block inside the tank if you have a tank rim. The ecotech arm has it built in. The arm works well if you have more than 3 brain cells to rub together.
  • Problem with Rim Tanks Not a Big Deal By Michael on 4/17/2017

    It is true that this mount kit is perfect for rimless tanks and will work on other tanks without some modification. My tanks is not rimless and the brace will not work to hold the weight of the HD52's mounted to each kit. I added a shim, I made from some scape acylic nad added a couple of frag bases between the acrylic shim and the mount clamp. This supports the weight effectively and it is a nice mount and would work for a large variety of tank sizes. I give it four sars, I would give it five stars if the required sims where premade and provided with the kit (much like is done with as EcoTech's Vortech pumps). This would be easy for Aqua-illuminations to add to each kit and would help them stand out as a top notch aquarium equipment provider.
  • Not bad needs some work By RicksReefs on 3/6/2017

    You can use this bracket with a black rim tank you need to add shims to the bracket. The other guy that posted wasn't using his thinking cap and returned the product. That being said its not a perfect product but it is ten time better looking than the rails and legs.
  • Poorly designed By Matt K on 1/25/2017

    I purchased this from another retailer. Would have ordered it from BRS, but it was out of stock. I just wanted to share with folks, this will NOT work if you have a standard braced 'black rim' aquarium. I emailed AI for a solution 6 days ago and have heard nothing back so I returned the items. I guess they think everyone has a rimless tank these days. I'm not a fan and my tank is 4 years old. No intentions of getting a new tank. I ended up going with 2 EXT rails, with 12" extensions (which seems so user-unfriendly that you have to buy separate parts but I guess that's so folks can get the length they need. Why not make it adjustable?). And even then, I had to jury-rig the lights because they are made to attach to the rails one way, with the light sitting perpendicular to the tank as opposed to parallel. Again, they could have made it modular so you can turn the light with the EXT system. Must have been an afterthought. SO, I was trying to make it look professional buying the AI mount, but still had to DIY to get it to work.
    Otherwise, they are very well made. Very sturdy. Nice finish on the metal. But designed well IMO.
