I have 40 breeder with three AI primes. Two of which have some issues and AI support asked me to send it to them for repairs. It will take a week or so for the repairs, what should I do in the meantime. Will the corals handle the reduced light from just one AI prime for a week? its a mixed reef, I have sps frags at the top and lps and softies at the bottom.

That's when you whip out the rusty old Chinese fixture you had before and throw it on the tank

You always need to have back up lights. I never sold my ocean revive lights when I bought Radions and T5 combo. Buy some cheap used lights here on chicago reefs as back up and then sent those to get fixed.

take the ai apart and clean it . if the fan is not working then the light will not work . you can replace the fan for under 20 bucks and the light will then work like new . i have a few old ai lights and i have had to either clean the light inside and out , replace the fan , or replace the power supply but i can always seem to get it back going without sending it out .

The problem is the UV and violet lens burned through, so I took apart the AI primes, cleaned them and replaced the lenses. But while putting it back, the fan wire in one of the AI prime got stuck in the screw hole and got shredded. Another AI prime has a fan problem, so decided to send both of them out since AI support told me they could help me with it.
