- Prime Flex Arm - 12 Inch - Aqua Illumination
The Aqua Illumination Prime Flex Arm was designed to exclusively work with AI Prime LED lights. The mount is very robust, and adaptable allowing you to use the Flex Arm on any type of aquarium rim up to 1.20" (30mm). The flexible portion of the arm has a silicone coating allowing easy cleaning while protecting it from moisture.
The included set screw system allows you to twist the arm within the base letting you fully secure your Prime LED to the screw attachment point. After your Prime has been snugged to the Flex Arm, you can loosen the set screw located within the base and twist the arm until it is perfectly flat, then tighten the set screw (do not over tighten the set screw, hand tighten only).
One of the biggest issues with mounting lights can be wire management, and the Flex Arm even has that covered, supplying clips that can attach directly to the Flex Arm and secure the power cord for the Prime LED, keeping things neat and clean.

Great improvement over the tank mount By Josh on 5/4/2018Josh would recommend this product to a friendI bought one of the first Primes for my 6g nano tank. It's been on one of their tank mounts which uses a ball joint and clamp assembly to attach to the light that was difficult to get tight and stay in place. It finally failed completely and was impossible to tighten to where it held the light. This flex mount screws directly into the light and is essentially one piece, and is waaaaay better than the tank mount I had.
Nice product By Scott on 4/21/2018Scott would recommend this product to a friendBRS was backordered on this mount so I ordered from another company, sadly! Anyway, owning this flex mount and the rigid elbow mount, I prefer the flex mount. More compact, modern, rubber coated, and attached in 2 minutes. Same rim attach mounts on both devices. It probably would not support any more weight than the AI Light. For the price point, I am very happy. I love the minimalist look. May have to swap out my rigid elbow mount as the flex is really nice aesthetically.
Working great for me! By Matthew on 1/31/2018Matthew would recommend this product to a friendI have 2 of these on 2 different tanks, both 12" arms. I've read of others having problems with them, but I don't move my lights around much and I've not had a single issue with them. I could see the 18" length being a bit more finicky due to the length, but I don't have experience to say that.
Looks great but really easy to break By Whitman on 8/28/2017Whitman wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThese looked awesome. However, they are really easy to over tighten when you're installing them onto your tank. As a result the screws that hold the unit together get ripped out of the plastic threads. Once they are damaged it's nearly impossible to repair them.
All in all, I ended up going with the square brackets for the AI Prime which are much sturdier and only slightly less attractive. It really came down to protecting the value of the lights; which I really didn't want to take a swim in my tank.
It does what its supposed to By lweigle on 8/14/2017lweigle would recommend this product to a friendI think the goose neck looks great and it stays in place, easily adjustable does what its supposed to and looks good doing it. The plastic screw it comes with used to attach the mount to the tank is wicked tight and i needed to use pliers to tighten it on. Once on it worked great.
Pretty Nice By Kurt on 7/19/2017Kurt would recommend this product to a friendI used this for a year over my 42-gallon cube. It works I never had a problem with it. I mounted mine with the screw on the inside of the tank, not the outside.
