Overview

*135-gallon, ultimate, full-size coral 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

Flagship reef system provides total reef-keeping solution for unprecedented freedom to create your dream reef aquarium! 135-gallon Red Sea MAX S-Series 500 - Black boasts state-of-the-art technology for a stylish system specified for sustainable growth of all corals, including the most delicate SPS corals. Full-size and fully featured 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 S-Series features the very latest in reef-keeping technology including the Hydra 26 HD LED lighting with Wi-Fi control, REEF-SPEC filtration and circulation systems, and a one-plug control center.

MAX S-Series Customized Systems
MAX S systems are available in Pearl White and Black. The cabinet side panels and doors are attached to a marine spec aluminum frame and can be replaced at any time, allowing renovation or a complete color change on a functioning aquarium. This feature combined with the replaceable trim on the light and aquarium adds an unprecedented level of longevity and flexibility.

All external surfaces use weather resistant polyurethane paints (similar to those used in the car industry) giving an elegant and durable finish.

Elegance and durability combined
MAX S-Series aquariums are constructed from 12-15mm ultra clear (low iron) glass supported by saltwater resistant plastics and a marine spec anodized aluminum frame. Designed for simple home assembly, all of the gluing, sawing and wiring have already been done for you.

Advanced LED lighting system with integrated WiFi
The MAX S-Series incorporate all-new Hydra 26 HD LED lighting, providing the most up to date LED technology to give superb performance and a remarkably user-friendly interface.

The Hydra 26 HD unit offers a full spectrum, 7 color LED configuration giving great color rendition and a multitude of lighting effects. The revolutionary control system dynamically adjusts the power available to each color by utilizing power not being used by other colors, effectively enabling selected channels to be 'boosted' to above 100% output. The lighting is fully controllable via a built-in WiFi, which is compatible with iOS and Android devices and with any WiFi-enabled Mac or PC.

At only 90w power consumption per Hydra 26 HD, the MAX-S achieves excellent performance at a fraction of the running costs of using traditional T5 Fluorescent lighting.

The lighting fixture features Red Sea's unique, mounted lighting chassis that slides across the width of the tank, providing easy access for all aquarium maintenance tasks.

MAX S-Series Total Reef Filtration
The complete reef filtration system starts with the surface skimmer that feeds the water to the in-cabinet sump via a flow-regulated, silent flow downpipe. The filtered water is returned to the aquarium by a main system pump that also supplies water to all of the filtration systems such as the protein skimmer, an optional chiller and/or reactors.

Connection between the aquarium and sump is via standard union connectors so no plumbing is required.

The MAX S-System is supplied with the main system pump, C-Skim 1800 protein skimmer, mechanical and carbon filtration media and all piping including preparation to connect a chiller and auxiliary reactors.

MAX S-Series Integrated Power Center
The MAX S-Series filtration system follows the one-plug MAX concept and features a power control center with easy access to 10 individually switched power sockets for all pumps, and other accessories, safety protected with integrated circuit breakers.

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 MAX E-Series incorporate the all-new Hydra 26 HD LED lighting, providing the most up to date LED technology to give superb performance and a remarkably user-friendly interface. The Hydra 26 HD unit offers a full spectrum, 7 color LED configuration giving great color rendition and a multitude of lighting effects.

The revolutionary control system dynamically adjusts the power available to each color by utilizing power not being used by other colors, effectively enabling selected channels to be "boosted" to above 100% output. The lighting is fully controllable via a built-in WiFi, which is compatible with iOS and Android devices and with any WiFi-enabled Mac or PC.

At only 90W power consumption per Hydra 26 HD, the MAX E achieves excellent performance at a fraction of the running costs of using traditional T5 Fluorescent lighting.

The lighting fixture features Red Sea's unique, mounted lighting chassis that slides across the width of the tank, providing easy access for all aquarium maintenance tasks.

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.
