*69-gallon, fully featured, open-top reef system with Wi-Fi control LED
*Very latest in reef-keeping technology supports aquarium success
*Focus on a thriving reef rather than aquarium component selection

Enjoy unprecedented freedom to create your dream reef aquarium! 69-gallon Red Sea MAX E-Series 260 - White combines a contemporary, rimless design with state-of-the-art technology for a stylish system specified for sustainable growth of all corals, including the most delicate SPS corals. Fully featured, open-top reef aquarium allows you to enjoy the beauty and diversity of your own thriving coral reef, rather than worrying about component selection, suitability and compatibility.

The MAX E-Series features the very latest in reef-keeping technology including Red Sea ReefLED lighting with Wi-Fi control, REEF-SPEC filtration and circulation systems, a revolutionary modular sump system, and a one-plug control panel.

Advanced LED Lighting system with integrated WiFi
The MAX E-Series incorporate the all-new Red Sea ReefLED lighting, providing the most up to date LED technology to give superb performance and a remarkably user-friendly interface. The Red Sea ReefLED unit offers a multi-wavelength, 23,000 Kelvin “REEF-SPEC Blue” channel (a proprietary blend of blue, violet and ultraviolet LEDs) which, together with an 8,000K White channel, provides a reef-safe range of color temperatures that enable all corals to flourish.

In addition, a separate dedicated 3W moonlight channel provides low levels of light for reef-safe night-time viewing.

ReefLED also includes an optical-glass, hollow lens that ensures a homogenous light spectrum with ideal PAR values throughout the aquarium, without hotspots or areas with insufficient light for coral growth.

ReefLED is controlled by Red Sea’s ReefBeat app which provides a number of preset lighting programs you can choose from as well as additional features including sunrise/sunset effects, lunar cycle moon light, random clouds and even an acclimation program for new installations. ReefBeat also provides best-practice guidelines during setup as well as useful notifications to your smartphone, for example, in the event of a power outage.

The MAX E-170 reef aquarium system uses a single 90W 26 HD LED unit while the MAX E-260 reef aquarium system has 2 units that are seamlessly paired together by the Wi-Fi controller.

MAX E-Series Revolutionary Modular Sump system (patent pending)
Dual sump options for total flexibility. The MAX E-Series features a unique sump system, enabling simple conversion of the integrated rear sump into a fully operational stand alone in-cabinet sump.

Start your reef with the built-in rear sump that houses the complete REEF-SPEC filtration and circulation systems. If you decide to add additional equipment such as a calcium reactor, the modular filtration system can easily be expanded by installing an optional Red Sea In-Cabinet Sump.

Red Sea's unique overflow system, with its fully regulated silent-flow downpipe (as used in the top-of–the-range S-Series), easily connects to the integrated multiport bulkhead without the need for any cutting, gluing or emptying of the entire aquarium.

The optional sump conversion kit includes a customized glass sump with a dedicated constant height skimmer chamber, a flow-regulated overflow system and an integrated automatic top up.

MAX E-Series Ultra Clear Glass
The front and two side panels of the Max E-Series are constructed from Ultra-Clear glass for the ultimate viewing experience. The 12mm thickness of the front panel allows us to avoid using bracing bars, enabling a clean rimless design with smart beveled edges top and bottom.

MAX E-Series Circulation
MAX E-170 is equipped with 2,150l/h pump. The flow is returned to the aquarium via the discrete multidirectional "eye ball" nozzles that can be adjusted to ensure there are no dead spots within the aquarium, preventing harmful detritus from building up on the corals.

MAX E-Series Rear Sump
The MAX E-Series aquariums are divided into 2 parts - Aquarium and the Rear Sump that discretely houses all of the filtration and circulation systems. The MAX E-Series sumps contain multistage filtration consisting of a REEF-SPEC protein skimmer, activated carbon and mechanical filter materials. The sump has dedicated space available for additional chemical filter media as well as the addition of a chiller.

MAX E-Series Protein Skimmer
The heart of the filtration system is the protein skimmer. The MSK 900 Skimmer implements Red Sea's REEF-SPEC criteria for SPS corals, passing the entire volume of the aquarium water through the skimmer at least 3 times per hour and with a 3 to 1 water to air ratio. The design of MAX E skimmers is not affected by the regular fluctuation in the water level of the rear sump due to evaporation and has an adjustable outlet gate to maintain the optimal skimmate consistency, which will vary according to actual water conditions. The new skimmer pump and impellor run cooler and quieter than before and the built in silencer on the air intake does a great job of eliminating skimmer noise.

MAX E-Series Media Rack
The rear sump includes a convenient media rack for Red Sea’s new highly adsorbent phosphate-free REEF-SPEC Carbon, which is supplied with the MAX E system, and has extra shelves for the easy addition of other chemical filter media.

Chiller Ready Kit
The Red Sea MAX E-Series sump has a dedicated place for the addition of a chiller pump as well as a convenient connection bracket for the chiller piping (Chiller and pipes are not supplied with the system).

Integrated Power Center
The MAX E-Series incorporates the one-plug MAX concept and features a power center with easy access to 7 individually switched power sockets for all system electrical sub-components. The power center is conveniently located in the cabinet and enables safe and easy control of all of the MAX sub-systems.

MARINE-SPEC Cabinet - Black
The MAX E-Series feature a marine-spec laminate cabinet fronted with weatherproof epoxy painted doors with convenient push openers as well as soft close stainless steel hinges. The cabinets are ventilated to provide convection cooling for a chiller. Offered with black or white exteriors, all cabinets have a black interior, which maintains its clean appearance over time.

Red Sea True Reef Specification for a successful Reef
Creating optimal Reef Conditions in your aquarium
The Red Sea REEF-SPEC performance criteria is the result of Red Sea's years of research into the sustainable growth of all corals, including the most delicate SPS corals, in an artificial reef environment. This knowledge, gained over 25 years, forms the basis for the specification of all Red Sea MAX aquarium systems designs.

Red Sea REEF-SPEC General Features
REEF-SPEC Lighting
Light is the primary energy source in all coral reef ecosystems, as it is utilized by photosynthetic organisms that provide up to 85% of the nutrition for most corals. The important parameters for light are the intensity and the spectrum or more specifically the PAR (photosynthetic active radiation).

The ReefLED lights are guaranteed to be reef-safe and REEF-SPEC® and are very easy to set up.

The built-in wi-fi connects them directly to the internet, enabling you to control them from your smartphone using Red Sea’s ReefBeat® smart aquarium app.

At the heart of the unit is a single, compact LED array that includes a multi-wavelength, 23,000 Kelvin “REEF-SPEC Blue” channel (a proprietary blend of blue, violet and ultraviolet LEDs) which, together with an 8,000K White channel, provides a reef-safe range of color temperatures that enable all corals to flourish.

In addition, a separate dedicated 3W moonlight channel provides low levels of light for reef-safe night-time viewing.

ReefLED also includes an optical-glass, hollow lens that ensures a homogenous light spectrum with ideal PAR values throughout the aquarium, without hotspots or areas with insufficient light for coral growth.

ReefLED is controlled by Red Sea’s ReefBeat app which provides a number of preset lighting programs you can choose from as well as additional features including sunrise/sunset effects, lunar cycle moon light, random clouds and even an acclimation program for new installations.

REEF-SPEC Filtration
Keeping the reef’s delicate creatures in a closed system requires special attention to water quality, by maintaining parameters within the narrow range that supports life. Effective filtration systems are made up of a number of elements, each performing complimentary tasks.

The heart of the Red Sea Max filtration is the protein skimmer, which removes the vast majority of the wastes produced by the aquarium inhabitants, as well as thoroughly oxygenating the water. Reef-Spec skimmers supplied within the Max will turn the aquarium water volume 3 times per hour and have a water:air ratio of 3:1.

This skimmer specification sets Max filtration apart from other systems, and is necessary in order to provide the water quality required by delicate SPS corals.

REEF-SPEC Circulation
Sufficient water movement is crucial for the well being of static coral reef species and helps maintain proper water quality parameters. Water flow provides the corals with the nutrients and minerals (e.g. calcium) necessary for growth as well as flushing away mucus and preventing stagnant areas where decomposing organic matter would otherwise accumulate.

Turbulence of the water surface is necessary to prevent the accumulation of a bio-film that reduces light penetration and efficient gas exchange.

Most corals suitable for reef aquariums come from shallow water with calm to moderate currents. A turnover of the total water volume of 10-15 times per hour is ideal, and every Max is supplied with the necessary pumps included, all housed discreetly within the design ensuring the beauty of the aquarium is not compromised.
