AI Prime

Aqua Illumination Prime debut coming soon

The upcoming release of the AI Prime LED light packs a plethora of features into a diminutive footprint.  This feature-rich LED light is a perfect solution for reef aquarium lighting on smaller aquariums where a light such as the Hydra TwentySix is more than you would need.  

Featuring on-board WiFi control, there is no need for a separate controller such as the AI wireless controller or the AI Director which are required for the Hydra FiftyTwo and TwentySix models.  As premiered at MACNA 2014, Prime LED lights are easily programmed and controlled via any smartphone, tablet or wireless computer.  Prime LEDs will be available in either a white or black finish and will include 7 independent channels and 7 distinctly colored LED diodes.

AI Prime Technical Specifications  

  • Dimentions: 4.88" x 4.88" x 1.34"
  • Colors: 7 LED colors
  • Power Specifications: 45w at full power
  • Power Consumption: 100 to 240VAC / 50-60Hz
  • Cable Length: 10 feet (3.048m)
  • PSU Regulatory Compliance: UL, CE, RoHS
  • Channels: 7 independent channels
  • Controller: Built in WiFi via smart phone, PC or Tablet
  • Mounting: Includes tank mount arm with ball/socket adjustment


Aquarium Specialty will begin taking pre-orders for the AI Prime fixtures in the very near future.  Stay tuned to the blog or sign up for the Aquarium Specialty newsletter if you would like to know when pre-orders will begin.

    The new Neptune Systems "DOS" pumps are now available for pre-order from Aquarium Specialty. According to our Neptune Systems representative, the first product shipment will occur no later than Mid-November, possibly sooner.  Due to limited availability during its initial release, Neptune Systems is allocating only 15 of these systems to each of its authorized distributors.  Aquarium Specialty will accept the first 15 pre-orders and then mark this item as unavailable until further notice once the first 15 are pre-sold. Ordering now will ensure that you will be one of the first who are guaranteed to receive this highly antiipated product offering.

    Wet Work Reef 924

    9/15/14 12:28 PM

    Wet Work 924 Gallon Reef by Sam Slobusky

    We are excited to present Sam Slobusky's latest "Wet Work" project. The design features a custom 924 gallon Elos Systems tank outfitted with a specially fabricated Royal Exclusiv Dreambox with Bubble King filtration.  Sam has tasked Aqua Specialty Wholesale, a divison of Aquarium Specialty with providing the Royal Exclusiv components of his new build.  Over the coming weeks and months we will periodically post updates of the progress of this ambitious new work.  Be sure to check in frequently with the Aquarium Specialty blog to stay up to date on this and other new and interesting developments.  The initial fabrication of the tank and sump is currently in progress in Italy and Germany respectively.  Here's a look at the mockup.


    Wet Work 924 Reef

    Imagine over 26 running feet of reef. That's a lot of real estate and it is precisely what Reef 924 will offer. At 9.2' long by 4' wide, this walk-around custom Elos display will provide a reefscape that will allow zoned environments to be created with the intricate flow system and modular LED lighting.

    The aquarium itself is unique. With absolutely no framing or bracing, the vertical panes are double-laminated 19 mm low-iron glass. The multi-piece exclusive Elos bottom is triple-laminated 19 mm glass. But, what really sets this display apart are the corners. Rather than square, they are all mitered. There is only one other tank like this in the US, owned by Wet Work's Marine Pond 6435 client in Miami Beach.

    Neptune WAV

    Neptune Wav

    The Neptune Systems Wav pump was recently premiered at MACNA 2014.  The Neptune booth was abuzz with activity when we dropped by to visit Terrence and Curt and see what new projects they had going.  The new Neptune Wav wavemaker pump was generating alot of interest.  Since Neptune Systems formally announced pricing on the Wav pump and the iLink yesterday, we thought it would be a good time to share this info with the public and to post these items as "coming soon" on Aquarium Specialty where you can learn more.



    A powerhead that answers all your needs:

    • Extreme flow (~3200+gph – tests pending)
    • Compact size (far less mass than similar-flow pumps)
    • Directional flow (pivots +/- 20 degrees and can be rotated – great for rear wall use)
    • Safe, 24V operation
    • Multiple operational modes (random flow modes, mirror, inverse, etc.)
    • Easy to clean
    • Incredibly Quiet (Even when pump is ramping or pulsing)
    • Magnetic mount works on up to 3/4″ glass
    • Easy installation with just one tiny wire for all power and control (1LINK interface makes it a snap!)
    • Competitive pricing: <$300 for one WAV, <$550 for two WAVs and a 1LINK Module

    Aquarium Specialty announces new product offerings in it's online catalog.  Recently,  Doctor Eco Systems, the makers of high quality fish, coral and invertebrate foods asked us to consider carrying their coral, inverebrate and fish foods.  After careful study, Aquarium Specialty is pleased to offer these new products.  The following is a review of one of these products known as Doc's Eco Eggs.

    Dr Eco Systems Super Eggs


    Doc's Eco Eggs are super high in protein-brined fish roe which contains a high fat content including omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids for your fish and corals.  Made from a high quality brined-fish roe which has been shown to send corals and fish into a feeding frenzy.  A benefit of this product  is that it can be shipped via regular UPS/FedEx with no need for refrigeration until it is actually opened for use by the consumer.  

    The manufacturer reccomends not to overfeed Doc's Eco Eggs or you might have a protein skimmer.  RLSS DC controllable protein skimmers offer a 30 minute feed timer button as do many of the Reef Octopus models so we reccomened pushing the 30 minute feed timer button when using a lot of the food at one time.

    Doctor Eco Systems recommends breaking up the egg mass in a cup of water prior to feeding your aquarium, but you may also squeeze some  directly onto your finger and add it directly to the aquarium. The egg gel tends to stay together longer, allowing large fish and larger LPS corals to ingest larger globs of the food. Small fish and corals benefit more from break...

    Hydra vs. Hydra TwentySix


    Recently we have received several customer comments and concerns regarding the Hydra vs. the Hydra TwentySix.  Most of these comments suggest that the Hydra with 4 LED clusters is better than the Hydra TwentySix because it has only 2 LED clusters. The goal here is to put that perception to rest. We consulted with Joel at Aqua Illumination to better understand the rationale behind the development of the Hydra TwentySix since the Hydra was a fairly new product and still in good demand.  Here's a quick look at the differences and why Aqua Illumination feels that the Hydra TwentySix is a viable alternative to the Hydra.

    Hydra vs. Hydra TwentySix - key points of interest:

    • The AI Hydra TwentySix has 26 LEDs versus the Hydra's 20 LEDs at the same wattage.  (The Hydra TwentySix is more efficient)
    • The LEDs on the Hydra TwentySix are in a tighter cluster which lessens the shadowing or "disco ball" effect.
    • The 2 LED clusters are further apart in the Hydra TwentySix VS the 2 center clusters on the Hydra.  Basically, the Hydra TwentySix provides the power of each two outer clusters of the Hydra within each of its individual clusters.
    • The footprint of the Hydra TwentySix is 7.28"x5.375"x1.6 while the Hydra is 11.9" x 5.4" x 2.1"
    • What is not to love about more output over the same area in a smaller package at the same price?

    BioTek Marine is currently developing a Hydra TwentySix mounting bracket similar to the HM mounting arm which presently exists for the standard Hydra fixture, but at a reduce...
