The Blade Refugium is a macroalgae growing machine. Silent, sealed and easily mountable take your biological filtration to the next level with a refugium powered by AI.

The AI Blade® Refugium utilizes the latest LED technology from leading manufacturers, arranged to provide the best performance.

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.

Optics are one of the most important components of an advanced lighting system. Edgefield™ technology incorporated in the Blade delivers even PAR, smooth color mixing and exceptional spread.
Edgefield optics, designed exclusively for the Blade, provide an incredible, 95 degree spread while achieving unmatched light mixing along the length of the blade. The specular exit surface presents a crisp and natural shimmer in your aquarium.
