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.

AI Blade Coral Glow

The beauty of Blade is its versatility. Used alone the Blade Coral Grow provides an excellent source of tuned light for your marine aquarium. Attractive and powerful, an adjustable but easy spectrum ensures great coral growth. Edgefield Optics delivers well mixed color and super even spread while preserving the caustics that make your tank sparkle.

AI Blade Hybrid Setup

Love the fill of a large fixture and the vibrance of a pendant? Embrace full spectrum for daytime but want to see a glowing sunset? Have great lights already but want to fill in some gaps or pop fluorescence? Blade has you covered. Easily usable with your existing Radion or Hydra fixtures and so easily mountable they will work with many others, go ahead,  customize your aquarium lighting your way!

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.
