    AI Hydra 26HD Mount Options

    Hey Everyone! I picked up (2) AI Hydra 26HD's and am trying to figure out best mounting option. My DT is already full and running so mounting anything to the back of the stand is not an option. The two options I am considering are the DIY TV mount or the HMS Multi-Light Kit. I don't want to spend a fortune to mount these lights and I am worried the HMS setup will sit too high above the water level. Does anyone know if these can be adjusted? If anyone has any DIY mounts they want to share, I would really appreciate it. Again, I cannot mount anything to back of stand as tank is full and operational. Also, if you have done the TV mount option, I could really use some good pictures showing how its connected.
  2. Finally figured something out on how to make a diffuser for my AI Hydra 26 HD since there’s nothing on the market at the moment. The difference it makes is night and day, seriously. The shimmer is so calming and soft it’s insane, no more crazy colors on the sand which honestly takes a toll on your eyes and it’s displeasing to look at. Here’s the parts I used and had laying around from previous lights. -Kessil 90 degree mounting arm (the 2” thingy) -AI Hydra top bracket from the AI gooseneck - P95 frosted acrylic (92% light transmission - frosted one side, clear the other side) Note: Acrylic has to be mounted 1” - 1.5” below fixture otherwise mounting it flush to the fixture will give no benefits. I drilled a hole big enough to fit the Kessil adapter through and secure with the Kessil nut on the other side. Slide AI bracket through Kessil adapter and find a nut to hold them together. Slide the whole thing on the fixture and voila, floating diffuser that looks quite sexy for a DIY. Now off to Home Depot to find a nut for this thing then mount it. I know not everyone has these parts laying around and purchasing separately might be a bit much for some people but I’m pretty happy with the outcome . Will have to increase the light by 10% and enjoy the sick shimmer I have now. NOTE: the piece of acrylic in these pictures is a test piece , not the P95 . I have that ready to be installed as soon as I come back with the nut:) Stay tuned for more pictures after install as well as a video of before and after .
