    Default Thoughts on AI HD Prime?

    I'm getting a 60 gallon cube in the next couple weeks. I bought the AI HD Prime to use. It looks to have the color output I want and says it's perfect for this size cube. The tank will be softies and a nem. Just wondering if anyone else is using this light and what they think?

    What are your tank measurements? I was using one on my 20 gallons, you might need another one...

    Might not be enough or adequate for your size tank. Prime and prime HD version are basically the same with HD model have the capability in over drive certain Diodes and have built in AI-FI (wireless) You would better off with AI 26's/XR15 or better 52's/XR30.

    I don't believe it will be enough if you want to do corals. Maybe soft coral and some lps underneath the light. It is a more appropriate light for a nano. A 60G cube would need a normal, and not nano/small tank light, once again, only if you are doing corals, if you are doing fish only, you will be fine.

    Yeah, nano reefers run single Primes on like 10g Nuvo tanks. Like they said, that won't be enough. Try a full size Hydra or Radion if you're set on these lights.

    It's 24x24x24. Their website says perfect for that size cube. That's also what the LFS suggested. I'm used to T5HO.

    Any other suggestions that would be in the same price range? I can't afford ecotech.

    1 prime will not be enough. I was running 2 of a 40G and it wasn't enough. I ended up running 2 hydra 52's .

    Any opinions on a Hydra26 vs Reef Breeders Super LUX? Pointless. Apparently the Reef Breeders is still on back order.

    What about the SBReef sBox Pro 16? I just got off the phone with the LFS. He says he's using this light on one of his big frag tanks. I'm going to go look again over the weekend. I haven't heard and reviews on this SBReef company.

    I'm not a Kessil fan. I don't know how long this SB Reef company has been around. But a bunch of people on the FB group I use seem to like them. The light looks decent. Average color ouput, good coverage on my size cube. About the same as Reef Breeder.

    I was looking at the Prime for a 20g and from researching, most seem to think that's about the max.

    Miguel (organism) is selling the Aquatic Life Halo. His corals look great. The customer service is also local and top notch
