We recommend 3 of the Hydra 26's which will have a spread of 24" x 24" each. This will eliminate the shadowing concern. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
These will not work with the Apex, Only through the My AI app or through the AiFi control built into the light. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.
The Apex did used to work with the Old model Hydra 26. the new HD models have lost controlability with the AWM module from Neptune Systems

With their easy to use app for IOS, Android or any other internet connected device you can have the ability to control your light from anywhere their is internet access.

Love it By Randall on 4/15/2017Randall would recommend this product to a friendI bought a reefer deluxe system which came with a 26HD. The light is amazing so far. The interface is easy to use. I love the mobile app. Hopefully I am DONE with hot metal halides!
Superior LED Light! By FLSharkvictim on 9/23/2016FLSharkvictim would recommend this product to a friendHydra TwentySix HD LED's are the bomb and have a unbelievable look to them. I really enjoy using the MyAI app and AiFi wireless connection. It is by far one the easiest lights to connect and control from anywhere in the world. It took me a little over a day and i NEEDED a little help from AI, but i had both pair up and running in no time.. These Hydrs26's are the best bang for your buck on the market. What every you do, if you go with these Hydra's make sure you start out in the acclimation mode or your going to have a massive Algae bloom. Another plus is the RAMP UP and the RAMP DOWN. Great addition to the Hydra's.. Here are my current settings for 1 month until I acclimate my these LEDS..
Royal Blue: 75%
Really nice By VINCE on 9/20/2016VINCE would recommend this product to a friendI have a 150 gal reef, 48"/24"/30" deep. I purchased two of the Hydra twentysix hds. Set up was a snap. I use my PC as my controller. Programming couldn't be any easier. The control is amazing. I am using about 85% of all the blue channels, and 60% of the whites. Reds and greens I have set at 30%. I can't imagine anyone not being happy with the natural looking light and shimmer these LEDs produce. From ramp up to mid day to ramp down, my 150 looks awesome. Colors on all my inhabitants is exceptional. Have been keeping a close eye on all my sps corals, after two weeks, they all look great. As important as good lighting is to a reef system, this is one of the best purchases I have made in the last 15 years
Solid Led Light compared to the Radiants by Eco Tech. By FLSharkvictim on 9/17/2016FLSharkvictim would recommend this product to a friendThese Hydra TwentySix HD LED's are the best lights I have ever bought.,. I am so you to my AquaticLife T5's and wow what a HUGE difference, let me tell you. It's a little tricky setting them up but ones you have them integrated them on you smart phone it's a piece of cake. The great feature is they have an acclimation mode so your lights are all on @ 50% levels so you don't have a major algae bloom. Highly recommend these lights.. As far as the mounting I went the 45'' mount rail and extension and they look awesome.
Great Growth By Sushi Raiser on 9/15/2016Sushi Raiser would recommend this product to a friendI have 2 of technology over my 4 ft tank. There are a few shadows, but I like it. It gives me places to put corals that don't need a lot of light. Setting up was very very easy. Then the easy startup setting in the app made setting my lighting parameters quick and easy. You can also adjust a single channel at a single time. After messing with the lighting my corals are growing like crazy. My clams are open and happy. The HD 52 will be going on my 10 foot tank next year without a doubt.
have no complaints By E on 8/26/2016E would recommend this product to a friendDont base your purchase over one persons DOA units. I purchased one for my 29 bio cube. I know over kill but will be upgrading and did not want to buy two lights. So that being said the unit works well with good coverage about 6 inches over tank. The ios app works well and have had no issues. Very easy to adjust and allows me to use such a large light on a small tank w/o bleaching or algae issues. I have lost power a few times this summer and when power returned light came right on back into its normal schedule. Why not five stars.. well I can not compare it to anything else and wont give something 5 stars because of that.
Received dead on arrival, now having difficulty with distributor to replace. This is my second broken hd26, not proving to be very reliable and wifi is unstable for maintaining parent - child relationship with other HD26, a real disappointment By Fisheye on 8/19/2016Fisheye wouldn't recommend this product to a friendSame as summary - hopefully Ai will sort out distributor issues.
Great light, not happy with mounting options By Martin on 7/29/2016Martin wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI bought two of these to hang over red sea reefer 350 (softy / LPS). The lights themselves are very good, and I absolutely love the control you get just from a phone app. I can even log onto website at work and change my lights if I need to. I really wanted to like the mounting brackets, but I just did not have enough adjust-ability. I should have just hung my lights but I really did not like that setup. It works for now but I think I may look at other options to hang the lights down the road.
Solid light, easy to set up and configure By JR on 7/27/2016JR wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI'm running one of these on my 60g Cube. It was easy to set up and I can access the AI app with my smartphone. The settings and configurations are also user friendly and can be done remotely.
