new generation of Aqua Illumination Hydra lighting is here!
The Hydra 64HD has been redesigned making the reef lights more efficient with better aesthetics. The Hydra Lights have been a staple in the reefing community for years and the new Hydra 64HD lights take the same great features and benefits while using more efficient hardware that ultimately gives better light and spread throughout your aquarium
The All-New Hydra® 64HD
More LEDs. More Power. More Color. More Refined.
With over 20% more LEDs, our flagship lights just got brighter. Vibrance is improved with deeper blues and brighter whites. Your corals will pop like never before.
With over a decade of design experience, every detail has been meticulously attended to. We’re sure that you’ll love the result as much as we do.

The World’s Most Popular Reef LEDs
The newest members of the Hydra line from AquaIllumination®, the Hydra 32 & 64 HD bring more power and color where you want it, plus the freedom to use your smartphone as a controller.
Smart Reef LED
More. That’s what you’ll get with the latest Hydra HD series lights which includes the Hydra® 64HD and Hydra® 32HD.
- More LEDs
- More PAR
- More Spread
- Improved Optic Design
- Improved Water Resistance
- Thinner Form Factor
- Multiple Mounting Options
- Dedicated Moonlight Channel
- Wider Spectrum (more channels)
Incorporating the features you’ve come to love such as Hyperdrive, smart control with the myAI® app and a proven track record of success.
Now with dedicated moonlight. You can simulate moonlight for a warm glow or to aid in coral spawning.
A dedicated moonlight LED and channel has been added in the new Prime HD, Prime FW, Hydra 32HD and Hydra 64HD modules. This allows for independent moonlighting designed to simulate the natural lunar color and intensity.
My AI app
Control on the lights will use the existing myAI® app which is free, simple and very quick to a program offering onsite direct BLE connection through your smart device. Additional control options may become available for the new generation Prime and Hydras over time.
The Hydra Mounting System (HMS™) is designed to provide an easy to use, adjustable tank mount solution for the Hydra 32 & 64.
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.
Optics and Output
Output in terms of PAR, color mixing and spread are all improved with the new fixtures.
The incorporation of more LEDs results in a more targeted full-spectrum, TIR lenses shape the light’s output and improve its efficiency. The result is more color POP as well as a slightly wider output area and higher average PAR. A combination LED placement and lens geometry blend the light from the clusters so that color separation is further reduced.
Generations of successful coral growth. At the core of the new Hydra series is a trusted color mix designed around the needs of the reef hobbyist.
Plenty of growing power along with HD functionality makes the Hydra series a lighting powerhouse. With HD, when you turn down the intensity of one color, you can use that available power other color channels.
Redesigning the plastics in the Prime and Hydra lineup has resulted in two major benefits:
- better efficiency
- better aesthetics
Efficiency improvements reduce the demands on active cooling for longer component life. Improvements to design thin the fixtures and reduce their profile and presence over your aquarium.
Water-resistance is a major benefit in aquarium lighting - and while the new Prime and Hydras are not waterproof, design improvements make them more capable of facing the moisture-rich adventures of reef keeping.
