Now you can easily mount your Hydra TwentySix or FiftyTwo LED light with one of the simplest methods available. The sleek look of the mounting arm is enhanced by the neoprene sleeve over the flexible portion of the mounting arm. The design of the arm mounting bracket lets the arm spin into the perfect position while holding the light securely, right where you want it.
The mount is designed for rimless tanks, however they can be adapted to rimmed tanks fairly easily.

Minimalist mount for Hydra By Lauren on 4/16/2017Lauren would recommend this product to a friendI bought this for my IM Nuvo 40g tank which is rimless. I wanted a clean look with hidden cords and that's exactly what I received. Its extremely strong and stable, but easy enough to bend into position when installing (which was also super easy). I love that it has cord clips to keep all wiring out of sight. Overall very well made and does exactly what I want it to do. I definitely agree it probably wouldn't fit well on a tank with a rim, but other than that, there is nothing wrong with this flex arm mount that would warrant a low review.
Only good for rimless tanks. By Clay on 1/30/2017Clay wouldn't recommend this product to a friendWell built product, just not well thought out. This would be sweet for a rimless tank. Anything with a rim, you'll either have to cut notches into the plastic or flip it around. Aqua Illumination recommended flipping it around, but it still didn't work on a standard 40 gallon breeder. Better off doing something DIY or finding another option.
The arm itself is stiff, which is nice because it accommodates for the weight of the light fixture. I will not recommend for someone that has a rimmed aquarium.
This doesn't fit tanks with a rim By Nick on 1/12/2017Nick wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThe 2 screws that tighten the clamp down to the tank have these little rotating/swivel heads on them where they contact the tank side. If you refer to the pic you can see two 90-degree elbows on water side of the side of the tank. These don't allow for any adjustment so if you have a rim on your tank there wont be full contact along those arms. The weight of the lamp just makes these clamps slide right off. In addition, those 90 degree arms slide into a 3rd piece using an allen bolt and a hex nut. While tightening it down the hex nut started spinning inside the carrier so I wasn't able to tighten it very well. The last complaint is the metal bit that slides onto the hydra lamp itself; I was very very careful to slide the clamp on slowly but it still managed to mare the surface of the lamp's matte finish.
The flexible mounting bar looks really cool and is very stiff so I think these would work really well if I had the right application. If you have a rimless tank, these might work for you which is why I'm giving this a 2 star and not a 1 star.
