Hydra 26 HD Lighting
Deluxe Reefer XL 525 includes 3x AI Hydra 26 HD LED modules
Aqua Illuminations has been producing LED lights for many years directly suited for sustaining reef tanks.

The Hydra lights are WiFi controlled through the MyAi app that can be used on any internet connected device.
The mounting solution that Red Sea includes lets you attach the mount directly to your wall, or back of the tank stand. The hinged arm lets you rotate the light into an upright, and out of the way position for easy maintenance.

Going from the top of the Reefer XL system down to the bottom, the first thing you will notice is the crystal clear glass and elegant beveled edges. The second thing you may or may not notice is the slim overflow that houses all the drain and return plumbing to keep the water a constant level within the display tank and surface skimming while being super quiet and taking up a very small amount of real estate inside of the tank. The return nozzle is fully adjustable for to direct the flow where you need it, and the dual drain system keeps overflows from happening like a single drain design may encounter. The dual drain design has one main drain that includes a diaphragm valve for easy tuning and adjustments. The other drain is completely open to flow directly down into the sump in the event that the main drain gets clogged. If plumbing is one of the reasons why you have never wanted to install a tank with a sump don’t worry as Red Sea has done all the planning for you and there is no gluing needed to assemble and seal all the plumbing.
The sump includes a filter sock holder and sock to keep large pieces of debris and detritus from clogging pumps and other pieces of equipment. The water can then flow from the filter sock into the skimmer compartment where the water will keep a steady level to aid in the best performance in your choice of skimmer or any other filtration components that you choose to include can be placed there. The water will then flow through the final bubble trap and in to the final chamber where the return pump (not included) can be placed to pump water back through the Reefer tanks return plumbing.
When water starts to evaporate all Reefer systems include an integrated top off system and reservoir that can hold a few days worth of top off water to keep the water level, salinity and flow rates consistent throughout the tank.
