Product Questions

I have a 72x24x24. Would 3 of these fixtures spaced 18" apart work well, or would you recommend 4 spaced 14.4" apart for best growth and color on a mix SPS LPS system?
Question by: Joshua Luster on Jun 27, 2016 11:49:00 PM
Great question!
Theses have a 30" x 24" spread and 3 would work well on a mixed SPS LPS tank.

Question by: Don DeFeo on Jun 16, 2016 10:53:00 PM
Great question!
The 52 will have a great of 30" x 24" realistically 3 would be a minimum for best spread across the tank. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

32x24x20 reef tank one 52hd be enough spread
Question by: Dave on Jul 19, 2016 9:33:00 AM
Hi Dave,
A single Hydra 52 HD would be lacking in light on that size tank. We wouldn’t really recommend that light for any tanks wider than 30” at most. For a 32” long tank you would definitely want two of those. You may want to look into the Hydra 26 HD lights since two of them will cover your tank as well.

How many units for a 36" x 36" cube? About 26 " deep.
Question by: Steven Torres on Aug 15, 2016 4:48:00 PM
Thanks for reaching out to us! Two of these fixtures would be perfect for that cube! :-)

Would this light be good on a 54 gallon bow from tank? It's about 26 in across in longest part. And 20 inch deep?
Question by: Adam on Oct 6, 2016 10:19:00 AM
Hey there, I think this light would be a perfect fit for a 54gal bowfront! :-)

How many modules would I need for coverage on a mixed reef 65 gal 37" long, and 24" deep? If one isn't enough, can I sync a fiftytwo and a twentysix together?
Question by: Tim on Jun 25, 2016 10:43:00 PM
The spread of a single light is 30" x 24". While they will not be synced together per se they will work through the same app and run the same programs.

  • Absolutely a quality product By AnotherPlanet on 9/5/2016

    I went through several lights before finally investing in (2) Hydra 52 HD lights for my 90 gallon reef tank. The ability to use a well designed iOS app to set specific schedules or manually adjust lighting is an excellent feature. The lights themselves produce a brilliant display for all times of the day. I combined these lights with the ext ceiling hanging mount and I'm not disappointed. My corals and fish love these lights.
