D&D mounts ( for Aqua Illumination)

Directly to: Slimline Bracket / Prime FlexArm / Prime Tank Mount / Rail Systems


Aqua Illumination is a prime brand in the aquarium industry. AI is known for its LED lights, for the quality and performance. D&D has developed a set of stylish mounting systems for all the AI lights. You will find all variants here, which you can apply to mount your Hydra's, Hydra HD's and of course the Prime.

AI has co-developed its lighting systems with D&D, which is why D&D has designed AI-specific mounts and brackets.

This is the most recent Slimline designer bracket developed by D&D, especially for the AI Hydra TwentySix (HD) and Hydra FiftyTwo (HD).

D&D Rail systems

To suspend your AI lights to a rail will turn your separate LED lights into a complete lighting system with unprecedented performance. A rail set will unify the individual LED lights to make it a complete system. D&D has developed a few rail variations to fit the Hydra52, Hydra26, SOL, Vega, and the normal Hydra. The rails are mountable on any size or shape of aquarium.

D&D took the comcept of the original AI SOL mounting rail system, and created an improved version, named the MKII. The MKII takes aesthetics as well as functionality more serious: It creates an amazing new version with an aluminium "section-design", built in cable management, and stainless steel end caps on the ends of the rails.


  • Anodized aluminum rail system

  • Rail system dividable into "sections"

  • Fully modular concept

  • Integrated cable management

  • LED unit position adjustable over the full rail-length

  • Strong and light weight

  • Compatible with SOL, Hydra and Vega models

Required accessories to suspend rail system to ceiling:
  • 1x MKII SOL Rail Kit

  • 1x Suspension Wire Kit (SOL WIRE 03)

Required accessories to mount rail system to aquarium glass:
  • 1x MKII SOL Rail Kit

  • 1x SOL Foot Kit

Note that we would always recommend that the rails are suspended from the ceiling rather than tank mounted as the lights offer a greater spread if they are positioned 8-12 inches from the water surface. This is not possible with the feet which support the lights about 4 inches from the surface.

Single light Installation

If a single light is to be suspended then it is not necessary to use any rail kit: D&D has instead developed a specific hanging kit which mounts directly onto the SOL/Hydra light (part: SOL WIRE 02). Multiple lights can also be suspended in this way with multiple wire sets.
