12" Blade Coral Grow Smart Strip LED Light - AquaIllumination
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.
A balance of blue and white diodes efficiently addresses the photosynthetic needs of coral. The Blade Grow delivers output in the deep blue through blue range of the spectrum (400-500 nm) which is proven to be a highly effective marine spectrum range.
LEDs (per cluster)
The AI Blade utilizes a cluster group configuration. Each Blade size includes roughly one cluster group per foot. Tight grouping and balanced diode placement contribute to the incredible balance and shimmer that the Blade platform delivers. The Blade Coral Grow includes the following 24 diodes per cluster group.
- 12 – Royal Blue
- 6 – Cool White

Build Your Own Solution
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.
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.
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!
The Blade Coral Grow, Blade Coral Glow and Blade Freshwater are available in 7 different sizes from 12" all the way up to 66". Regardless of tank size or application, Blade has you covered.
The Blade incorporates a highly efficient heat sink design. Passive cooling means no fan and no air moment or fan noise. This makes the Blade ideal for lighting aquariums in living spaces where less noise is a big plus.
