As of October 7, 2019, the AI lights included in the +Plus bundles of our Aquariums are the new models.
Which models will replace which?
- The AI Hydra 26HD is replaced by the new Hydra 32HD.
The AI Hydra 52HD is replaced by the new Hydra 64HD.
The Prime HD is replaced with the Prime 16HD.
The FW PRIME and PRIME FUGE will also receive changes to optics, heat sink and LEDs although the spectrums will remain largely unchanged.
- The best value Aquarium lighting on the market
- MyAi App control
- HD overdrive capability (route power to the spectrum you need)
- AI customer support
- Numerous mounting options
Rest assured that the Hydra 26 and Prime HD are beautifully designed and tested, these lights have been extremely successful for years on the market.
Mounting hardware as previously available for Hydra and Prime fixtures will work with the new version lights. (The exception is the Hydra Flex arm which will require a different light bracket due to the size difference in the new fixtures. The Flex arm bracket will change with the new fixtures. Older flex arms being used to mount the new lights will need a new light bracket.)
The Prime 16HD, Fuge, FW, Hydra 32HD and 64HD can be mounted using the existing Prime and HMS Mounting accessories.
We understand that you may want to upgrade to the newest Hydra 32 or Prime 16 if you recently received your +Plus model with the Hydra 26 or Prime HD. We are offering a discount on the new lights if you would like to upgrade.
We will not offer any trade-ins for orders that have already been shipped or received.
