Yes provided the Sol has a Wireless Adapter.

Is the Hydra Fifty Two worth the extra money?

I think depending on the depth. I have a 24" tall tank, minus sand and air gap at the top, that puts me at 21" of water. My Hydras (non-52) very easily penetrate to the bottom, and I'm growing SPS at up to 18" from the water line, so I have no problem with power.

Likely with a 36" deep tank you might want more penetration power.

I'm collecting equipment I will be needing when I finally get my 220 running.
Thanks for the info!

My AIs are 37" from the sandbed and I can grow SPS on the sandbed with no problems.

I was thinking about 2 hydra's and 2 52's I can always dim them if they are to intense.

You can manage 10 tanks with up to 30 lights with one AI Director. Call us tomorrow if you want to discuss 1 on 1.

What percentages are you running them at?

I think the lights are getting stupid now. It's all a marketing game about who has the most LEDs and the most power. Does anyone even run their existing ones at 100%?

I've been running LEDs for 2 1/2 years so I dont reccomend anyone to start out at those percentages.

I hear you Madreefer my SOLs have been on the tank about 2 years now, it just occurred to me I should ramp them a little higher.

Also agree with Ron, Kessil makes a good light for guys who want to go simple. Although I see they have now released a lamp that is externally controllable also.

Well there's those that say AI is a low end entry level led fixture, I have nothing but great things to say about them. I'll be taking 2 of my Sols off and replacing with 2 of the Hydra 52s.

Yeah I didn't think it was a big deal since the central question was answered in the second posting.
