Balanced Power and Spread for Optimal Reef Tank Lighting
Discover the AquaIllumination Prime 16 HD Series, designed to enhance your aquarium with vibrant colors and powerful illumination. Control is easy with the myAI or Mobius apps, allowing you to adjust and customize the light spectrum and photoperiod to your preference. No longer are you limited to using a fixed amount of power per channel. The Prime 16 HD dynamically adjusts power available to each color, borrowing power from the colors you’re not utilizing. The result is the most vivid spectrum your tank has ever seen.
Simple Built-in Control
All AI devices include smart control standards. Use the myAI app on any iOS or Android device and is probably one of the easiest pieces of software to get up and running. The programming can be as simple as using a pre-defined cycle all the way to multi-point programming that lets you customize the intensity and spectrum throughout the day. The app is fully expandable from a single light up to more than you would ever need on your reef tank using the master/slave programming, you only need to program a single light.

No more switching between multiple apps.
With a spread of 24″ x 24″, the AI Prime 16HD has a peak PAR of 100µMol at a depth of 24 inches, perfect for the small to medium reef tanks. Drawing a maximum of 55 watts from the wall, it follows in the family’s efficient footsteps.

Thank you in advance!
Thank you for reaching out to us. While older Primes are https://www.neptunesystems.com/downloads/docs/IoTa-AI_Prime_and_Hydra_User_Guide.pdf
New Primes and Hydra lights are not.
Thank you for reaching out to us. For this size tank, We would recommend 4 lights that are evenly spaced.
Please let me know if you need anything further and take care!
That would be an excellent light choice for that tank!
The recommended spread for that light is 24"x24", it should be able to grow your coral!
There are only a few differences between models, the newer ones have a couple more LED channels including a dedicated moonlight channel. Another difference is the light only works with bluetooth on the app, not wifi anymore.
Great question! For a mixed reef this should be sufficient for you needs, however higher light corals will need to be centered more closely around the LED pucks for ample PUR.
Happy reefing! c:
