Hi all i have the AI hydra 26 (first gen) with remote
Does anyone have led percentage settings they can share that have had good results with coral growth?
My tank is 100ltr with the light 10 inches from water surface

This is mine, it might look basic but it works, you might want to drop the blues to 80%

Thanks Gav for the video but i dont have that Ai app for my light. My light is the first generation so it doesn't have wifi, only a Bluetooth remote and my settings go from 0% to 100% only
My individual led colours are
White
Dark blue
Royal blue
Violet
Uv
Red
Green

Hi @jordanweasel  , this thread is a general AI owners thread and info relating will be posted here , ....

You could still try the % given but modifying the top end of the range to fit within your 0-100% , I'm not sure if it will give the same effect , it would depend on if the colours of LED are the same on both lights .
eg.
UV 100%
Violet 98%
Dark Blue 80%
Royal blue 79%
White 19%
Red 4%
Green 4%
The dark blue and royal blue may need tweeked back a bit to suit the lower power of UV and V in comparison to the HD light .
You could then make small adjustments from there to suit , if you find you don't run your lights at 100% then you'd need to work out the decreases on each Chanel to keep it proportional .

Ok i will give it a go but i have had a few leds on 100% before and it looked too bright so wanted to see if anyone here has them and what settings they was on. Certain corals do grow but some like my zoas and pulsing zenia cannot keep alive. My levals are good but after a few weeks they just shrink and fade away so i have narrowed it down to possible light either to much or to little

If your having to make substantial changes do it slowly over a week or so , you don't need to over do it and bleach your coral .
I run a preset that I've modified for my own tank but I've had to take back the top power levels down to suit my own corals and needs , use the above as a guideline of which channels to have duller and which are brighter .
It may take 3 to 4 weeks to see any results on the corals .
What corals do you keep ? Are they all softies or any LPS SPS as well ?

A few days ago I've had a fault with one of my lights , during the update from 2.0 to 2.1 one of my 3 hydras stopped working . It would still talk to the others but just would not illuminate .
I tried various combinations of setup as parent or child etc before just performing a master reset . The indicator LED flashed through the usual start up , red green blue , followed by teal , but instead of flashing green blue the LED went white / pink in colour for around 20s flashed red 16/17 times before going solid white / pink again .
I got in touch with Tony at D-D who was incredibly helpful , at which he found the WiFi board within the light was faulty . I was sent out a new board to fit which has resolved the problem and they are all up and running now . 😊 .
Thanks Very Much to Tony at D-D 👍
I've posted this in here as the fault code above isn't listed in the manual .

Hi Gav
I had heard problems with this happening so I have skipped it the last few times it has come up on mine.

It was a bit of a pain , strangely when AI logged in and reverted the firmware back to 2.0 the light came back on and worked fine until the replacement board arrived . All updated to 2.1 now and going fine .

That’s good to know they can push the update back to get the light going.

They also tried to install an earlier version than the 2.0 , but the light wouldn't run that either it only lit when running the 2.0 firmware .
