A single Prime HD would be a very nice light on the Reefer 170 and with the tanks 18 x 18” footprint, we would suggest going with the 18” Prime Flex Arm. That would give you a good height for the light above the tank while giving you the ability to center it over the tank as well.
Thanks for the questions and if you have any more just let us know.
These will be a little limited and for best growth and spread we recommend the Hydra 52 with a 30" x 24" spread.
This is not quite large enough with penetration to cover the 75 gallon system. Instead we recommend the Hydra 26 HD's x2. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
This light will be a great fit for the New Nuvo Concept tanks! Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
This certainly can work with some SPS no problem as long as you keep the SPS in the 12" range and adjust the light intensity accordingly. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions.
If the light is placed close enough and it is softies mixed reef tank you certainly could use several Primes for coverage!
Unfortunately a glass shield would have a negative affect on light intensity and can actually reflect/block a significant amount of light from the fixture.
Have a great day!
This will be limited for penetration much deeper than 12". We do not recommend this light for a 60 cube. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

Waste of Money By Hardwerk on 3/9/2017Hardwerk wouldn't recommend this product to a friendFailure - The network connectivity is really disappointing. My entire house is very well covered with WiFi on 5ghz and pretty good on 2.4ghz. However, these, of course only do 2.4 ghz (old school). These lights hardly connect to the wifi. It is such a weak radio. I have no devices that have as weak of an antenna as these (by far). I tried multiple times to get the Parent/Child setup to work but it doesn't. I had to control them individually. Tech support sucks but if you have a week and are patient they will respond with something, at least. Just don't be in a hurry.
Today, I came home and one of them has failed. Dead. After the issues I had with setting up parent/child, weak wifi connectivity, weak support services I'm not even going to bother contacting them about replacing. I'm going to throw both of them away and go get new lights. $500+ down the drain.
General Opinion - The price of the lights are on the high end for what they are. Yes, there are more expensive light setups but they have far more LED's, multiple fans, heavier duty mounting options, etc.. These lights are meant to be simple small form factor and perform really well. Which was appealing to me.
The lighting itself is pretty good. You need to be 10" or more above your water, though (in my opinion). My setup I was only 7-8" above with 2 of these lights and I was willing to live with having less light in the corners of my tank. The disco ball effect IS really annoying that others talk about. You have to turn off red and green to get rid of it and then of course you lose a light of vibrant colors on the corals so that isn't realy an option. You have to live w/ the disco.
Ai prime hd nuvo20 By James on 2/16/2017James would recommend this product to a friendI have this light on my innovative marine fusion 20. I had the skkye lights when it was FOWLR now I've started getting corals and had to upgrade. Spreads nicely for me I just put lower light corals in the corners, chose this over the kessil because I wouldn't need a separate controller. Takes a while to play with the settings but once you get the hang of it, it's really a nice light
If I could give this light a ZERO out of 5 stars, I would. By Jon Link on 2/13/2017Jon Link wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI have have nothing but issues with both of my AI Prime lights over the past year and AI's customer service was terrible. I had to ship these lights back 3 different times over the past year and had to pay the shipping myself. One of the lights didn't work straight out of the box when it was brand new. The other two had fans fail on them within a couple of months which made them constantly overheat. They did not work correctly at all. One of them was destroyed because they aren't sealed properly and salt creep formed inside the light. In this case, AI blamed me for the damage and only left me the option to purchase a new light. It was at a discounted rate ($150), but I had to buy a new one. Keep in mind each time I sent a light back, I had to reorganize all of my corals to keep them from dying while one of my lights was unavailable for 3 weeks or so. That happened three different times. Ridiculous... Buy something more durable or buy from a company with good customer service.
Too much disco By Alex on 1/24/2017Alex wouldn't recommend this product to a friendWith any surface agitation you get a disco ball effect. You really need to turn the red and green nearly off to stop this. AI basically shrugs and says good luck. For the price it's okay, but to be honest I'd go with the competitor.
Great light for the price By Dan on 1/15/2017Dan would recommend this product to a friendI purchased two of these for my 65 Gallon mixed Reef tank. With the lights 9" above the waters surface and maxed out, my easy SPS is growing and displaying amazing color. The softies love it. Definitely sticking with Ai products.
Good By Jason on 1/14/2017Jason would recommend this product to a friendLights a 54 gallon corner tank at 25%. Light is easy to setup via the app for the phone/tablet. App is easy to use, but I was hoping for more features. Setup of a schedule is easy. Weather and lunar affects can be scheduled and turned on/off. Manual mode can change the settings at will then automatically changes back to the default settings once exited manual mode.
Lights doesn't working. Awful customer's service By Enrique Sanchez Costa on 12/21/2016Enrique Sanchez Costa wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI bought three Prime HD lights. One of them had the Wi-Fi function without working. Then, the light was useless (for I could'nt configurate it). Another had the white channel with less power than it should have. Then, the light in my tank was uneven as you may see in the left side of the picture (bluer than the rest of the tank). I had to pay the sending to AquaIllumination for the replacement light. They never apologize for their light failures. And, after all the trouble, they were unable to send the light outside US without extra costs. At the end, the lights arrived three weeks later. The only reason my corals are still living is because they are soft corals and the room has a good natural light. I never, ever, will buy an AquaIllumination product again.
Amazing what a good light can do By RH on 12/19/2016RH would recommend this product to a friendThis light is really sleek and perfect for a nano reef. I love the controllability and for the price it is really worth it. Im really glad to have this new light and AI has my support from now on.
Awesome Product By Philip C on 12/17/2016Philip C would recommend this product to a friendJust order this unit for my 20g coral quarantine tank, love the Prime fixture. However, they need to do some serious work with the app. Works most of the time, can be frustrating at times, the concept is there. This said I can't knock the Prime LED fixture it amazing!
Would not recommend By Dcarr on 12/8/2016Dcarr wouldn't recommend this product to a friendSeems like some great features BUT ... app is not user friendly. Very time consuming to set a schedule. Main issue is the colors separate as they pass thru the water column and you get a disco ball effect on the bottom. Kessil is a much better option with the controller. It's more money but you get what you pay for.
Nice idea poorly executed By Scott on 11/7/2016Scott wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI have 3 of these lights, and they cannot communicate as advertised. They show up on the network sporadically, and when I contacted AI they blamed...my ISP.
I was setting them up as outlined in the instuction card (a 3x5 card...pretty poor) going straight from my phone to the lights...no home network or ISP involved, yet two requests for assistance point at an ISP that isn't even involved.
These lights will be going back, and Kessils will hang in their place.
Good for the money! By Ian on 10/6/2016Ian would recommend this product to a friendI have two of these over my nuvo fusion 30L. I love the colors that they produce and the amount of features that are available on the lights. I only have 2 complaints, sometimes at low light levels, the lights can make an annoying buzzing sound, it's not extremely loud but it is noticeable, from what I heard it happens when the fans turn off to conserve power. Also I have noticed the lights changing colors, which you shouldn't because they are supposed to ramp from one setting to the next according to the cycle you set up. The user interface could be a bit better but it is manageable. But those things are kind of small when you compare this light to it's competitors. Can't beat it for the money!
