In-stock and Available to ship immediately! AI SOL Blue

Aqua Illuminations SOL Super Blue Modular LED Lighting System.

Reduced Energy

The AI modules are some of the most efficient lighting products on the market. Because of the lower energy consumption, an AI module will realize over a 1/3 savings when compared to the equivalent us of a low output metal halide (250W) bulb.

No Heat Increase

The AI shows less than a 1 degree water temperature increase over a 12 hour period. A low output metal halide (250W) bulb in the same configuration shows an increase of over 15 degrees. Because of this, it is unlikely that aquarists will have to use chillers when running AI modules resulting in substantial savings from equipment purchases and energy consumption.

Over 8 Times Longer Life

The AI’s modules are rated for over 50,000 hours providing for years of maintenance free and environmentally friendly use. Metal Halides require costly annual replacements due to deteriorating output and unpredictable color drift.

Built in the USA

Every AI product is made with high quality components. We assemble each unit at the AI headquarters and have been doing so since 2007. We test all critical components in-house including a PAR output, heat output, and electricity consumption test after a 24 hour burn in period for each module to ensure that each AI module is of the highest quality.

Skimz Kone Skimmer in Action SK181

ES2000 Needlewheel Skimmer Pump creates massive air bubbles.

Skimz   KONE  SK181  internal  protein  skimmer  features  the  highly  efficient  Skimz  ES2000  needlewheel  pump,  suitable for aquariums up to 1,200 litres (53-320 gal).  With the combination of the conical body and bubble plate, it is the most effective skimmer in its class by significantly  reducing  turbulence,  bubble bursting and surface agitation. The Skimz  SK181 draws an air intake of 540 l/h.  With low power consumption (12 watts) and  superior  performance makes the  Skimz  SK181 an excellent  choice for reefers looking for a value-for-money, attractive yet powerful skimmer.

SKIMZ’s  latest  design  allows  cleaned  water  to  exit  the  protein  skimmer  chamber  at  its  base  where it  is  almost  bubble-free.  Precise  adjustment  of  the   water  level  within the skimmer body can now be easily achieved using the new Micro-adjustable Valve.

No feed pump required, skimmer draws water directly from sump.

Technical Data:

* Skimmer pump: 1 Skimz ES2000 needlewheel - MADE IN ITALY
