Color Your Way

This is not your normal LED strip, by any means! Incorporating proprietary EdgeFieldTM Optics, The Blade enhances color and efficiency while delivering uniform PAR, smooth color mixing, amazing 95 degree spread, and a realistic shimmer effect in your aquarium. The light may wrap around high spots in your tank thanks to the broad angle and modular cluster LEDs, which reduces shadowing and creates a clean illumination. Shadows are eliminated and the light distribution is equal, equivalent to standard T5 lights, but with more efficiency and at a fraction of the price when 3 or more Blade strips are combined! In order to improve light coverage and lessen hotspots, you may also utilize the Blade in conjunction with any existing lighting fixtures as auxiliary or fill lighting.

To meet the photosynthetic requirements of corals, the Coral Grow model offers a potent and well-balanced blue and white growth spectrum with output in the deep blue through blue range (400-500nm). Use the Grow to obtain the most PAR output per square foot, the Glow to get the most fluorescence, or combine the two to achieve both. Although a 2:1 Grow to Glow ratio is ideal for achieving peak performance, one of each is completely appropriate when less light is required.

Approximately one light cluster group is included in each AI Blade LED Strip for every foot of fixture length. The remarkable balance and shimmer that the Blade platform produces is a result of tight grouping and well-placed diodes. Each cluster group of 24 diodes in the Blade Coral Grow consists of the following diodes:

  • 12x Royal Blue
  • 6x Cool White
  • 6x Blue

Mount Your Way

The AI Blade may be mounted in a variety of ways to fit any system. To discover the ideal mounting solution for your setup, select from a Tank Rest, Elevated Tank Rest, Hanging Kit, Hybrid Mount, or HMS Adapter Arm.

  • Tank Rest – Included with all Blade lights up to 39″, this low-profile mount sits directly on top of your tank and extends up to 4.5 inches on either side of the fixture.
  • Mounting Clips – Included with all Blade lights over 39″, these clips are compatible with the AI HMS Single Arm Mount and HMS Hanging Kit rails.
  • Elevated Tank Rest – An attractive and sturdy tank mount for both rimmed or rimless tanks. The Elevated Tank Rest increases light spread and allows for easier access into the aquarium when compared to the standard Tank Rest.
  • Hanging Kit – Made from high-quality brushed aluminum with a black finish, the Hanging Kit provides an elegant solution for suspending your Blade above your aquarium. The Hanging Kit also allows you to mount 3, 4, or 6 light bars in parallel for increased coverage and streamlined aesthetics.
  • Hybrid Mount – A mounting solution designed to combine Blade strips with one or more AquaIllumination Hydra or EcoTech Radion pendant fixtures. The best of all worlds, rolled into one!
  • Custom Mounting – If none of the above mounting options suit your fancy, the Blade also includes M8 mounting threads at each end, enabling you to easily create a custom mount with endless possibilities.

Control Your Way

Through the MyAi or Mobius apps for iOS and Android smartphones, the Blade LED may be wirelessly controlled. You may adjust the spectrum strength and create individual schedules for each light using the app, or you can just choose from one of the preset in-app themes. On Google Play and the App Store, both applications are available for no cost download. Additionally, each Blade LED has internal controls for switching between spectrums.
