Hey guys I'm fairly new on this forum, first time posting. So with that said I need your help, I have a Cadlight 50 Gallon Cube, I'm going for a mixed reef and have been running an AI Hydra. I'm looking to upgrade to either the Hydra 26 or 52. I'm not married to the idea. I was also contemplating on doing 2 of the AI Primes. Hopefully some of you are running these lights and can give me an idea of which work better or even suggest different LED lights. Thanks in advance!

I think the prime would be under sized and would be inadequate for your tank. The 26 would be better to a certain degree, or even (2) 26 would be better option.

That's what I was thinking about the Primes, [MENTION=5085]newtothis[/MENTION] have you had any experience with the 26's. Or would you recommend any other LED light?

I have a 26, that I bought last year for my son nano. But since I upgrade his tank to a 60 cube, I feel it to smal, unless I get another. Basically the prime has (1) cluster of LEDS, 26 has (2) cluster, and the 52 has (4) clusters.

I've had one frag for a couple weeks and the other frag i just got the other day... Both birdsnest which i believe are the least demanding... But so far so good.

[MENTION=4504]Smitty1782[/MENTION] Nice do you have any pics? And what settings are your running it at. [MENTION=5085]newtothis[/MENTION] hooked me up with a 26 so I just set it up but I am still messing with the settings.
