Blade Coral Grow

The Blade Grow offers immense power in a thin package. Coral Grow features a LED mix that maximizes spectral peaks needed for coral photosynthesis. Use alone or augment with the Blade Glow for a color combination that fits your needs.

Available in:

The Blade Grow provides enormous power in a small form factor. The LED mixture used in Coral Grow optimizes the spectrum peaks required for coral photosynthesis. Use on its own or in conjunction with the Blade Glow to create a color scheme that works for you.


Blade Grow Spectrum

The demands of coral for photosynthetic activity are well met by a ratio of blue and white diodes. The deep blue to blue (400–500 nm) band of the spectrum, which has been demonstrated to be a very effective marine spectrum range, is where the Blade Grow produces its output.

Blade Grow LEDs

The AI Blade Grow makes use of a cluster group setup. Approximately one cluster group per foot is included in each Blade Grow size. The remarkable balance and shimmer that the Blade Grow platform produces is a result of tight grouping and well-placed diodes. The following 24 diodes are part of each cluster group in the Blade Coral Grow.



EdgeField™ Optics

One of the most crucial parts of a sophisticated lighting system is optics. The Blade Grow’s EdgefieldTM technology produces consistent PAR, slick color blending, and outstanding spread.

Edgefield optics are unique to the Blade Grow and provide an incredible 95 degree spread while achieving unparalleled light mixing all the way along the Blade Grow’s length. The specular exit surface produces a vivid, natural shimmer in your aquarium.





Seven distinct sizes are offered for the Blade Coral Grow, Blade Coral Glow, and Blade Freshwater. No matter the tank size or use, Blade has you covered.



For Blade Sizes Up to 39.1 Inches Tank Rest Included

The tank rest extends up to 4.5 inches on either side of the blade (for a total of 9 inches).


For Blades over 39.1 inches Blade Mounting Clips are included.

These clips are compatible with the AI HMS Single-Arm and HMS Hanging Kit rails.  Different application? No problem, the Blade has many other mounting options available or use the clips with your custom mount.



Water Resistant

Blade is not only adaptable but also durable under the demanding conditions of marine aquariums. Blade complies with IP66 requirements, which denote the maximum degree of protection against water and particulates.

Blade Coral Glow is made to maximize fluorescence, while Blade Coral Grow is made to maximize PAR efficiency. Get the best of each by combining them. Although a 2:1 Grow to Glow ratio is ideal for achieving peak performance, one of each is completely appropriate when less light is required.

Blade is beautiful in its adaptability. For your marine aquarium, the Blade Coral Grow works great when used alone as a source of adjusted light. A versatile yet simple spectrum that is attractive and strong guarantees excellent coral development. Edgefield Optics maintains the caustics that give your tank its sparkling appearance while delivering well-mixed color and an extremely even distribution.

Love the vigor of a pendant and the fullness of a big fixture? Accept the entire spectrum during the day if you want to experience a brilliant sunset. Have excellent lighting already, but want to add more or bring out fluorescence? Blade can handle it. Go ahead and personalize your aquarium lights as you like! They are simple to use with your current Radion or Hydra fixtures and so simple to attach that they will work with many others.
