The World’s Most Popular Reef LEDs

The newest innovation in the Prime line from Aqua Illumination, the Prime 16 HD Series brings more power and color where you want it, plus the freedom to use your smartphone as a controller. No longer are you limited to using a fixed amount of power per channel, the Prime 16HD dynamically adjusts power available to each color, borrowing power from the colors you’re not utilizing. Giving you the most vivid spectrum your tank has ever seen. The Prime 16 HD Series is capable of producing a limitless number of spectral combinations to fit your tank’s exacting needs.

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.
