Quick Overview

The AI Hydra Flex Arm is specifically designed to securely hold the Hydra series of LED lights from Aqua Illumination. The stiff, yet flexible arm gives you complete control over the height and positioning of your LED unit.

Each Flex Arm comes with clamps to secure the FiftyTwo or TwentySix series of LED lights along with tank mounting brackets that works with aquariums up to 1.0" thick.



Full Details

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.

  • AI Prime By Jordan on 9/25/2017

    If this mount were like the gooseneck mounts for the AI Prime, would get it in a heartbeat. This particular mount for the Hydra sucks and I will be returning this and my Hydra for two AI Primes. Wish it had worked better because I like the clean look of running just one light versus having to run two. Oh well...
  • Bad & Hard to Use By P on 8/1/2017

    Bad product. It's not convenient to use and has lots of problems. First they have a very narrow selection of tanks they are compatible with. Second it's unnecessarily heavy which will put a lot of weight onto the side of your tank. Third the contact area is really tiny so not just a lot of weight onto the glass but also a lot of pressure applied to 2 tiny dots. Fourth, it's unnecessarily complicated for a small thing like this and for the width they give you if your aquarium has a rim or if you are trying to put it on a piece of wood it's either very difficult or impossible.
  • bad design By sano on 5/12/2017

    Doesnt work unless you have a rimless tank
  • Minimalist mount for Hydra By Lauren on 4/16/2017

    I 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 1/30/2017

    Well 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 1/12/2017

    The 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.

Product Questions

Does the cord show on these AI Flex arm mounting brackets or do they have a cord management system that hides it?
Question by: John on Jan 25, 2017 12:30:00 PM
Great question! There is no built in cord management for this mounting arm. You would have to attach the cord to the arm to make a sleek look. :-)

Will theclamp on this light fit over the lip on a emerald trigger system sump?
Question by: Jeffrey Austin on Dec 22, 2016 3:09:00 PM
Great question! This will not fit over the edge of the lip on the sump. It will work on rimmed aquariums though. :-)
