Build Your Solution



AI Blade Grow and Glow Together

Blade Coral Grow is designed for maximum PAR efficiency and Blade Coral Glow is designed for maximum fluorescence. Mix them together and get the best of both. Peak performance is best achieved in a ratio of 2:1 Grow to Glow, but one of each is perfectly acceptable when less light is needed.




Silent Running

The Blade incorporates a highly efficient heat sink design. Passive cooling means no fan and no air movement or fan noise. This makes the Blade ideal for lighting aquariums in living spaces where less noise is a big plus.
