The revolutionary control system dynamically adjusts the power available to each colour by utilizing power not being used by other colours, 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.

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.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eMAX® E-Series Ultra Clear Glass\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe front and two side panels of the Max® E-Series are constructed from Ultra-Clear glass for the ultimate viewing experience.

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.

Red Sea MAX® E-Series Fully Featured REEF-SPEC Open Top Reef Aquariums

The fully-featured REEF-SPEC MAX E system provides everything necessary in order to enable you to enjoy the beauty and diversity of your own piece of 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 the Hydra 26 HD LED lighting with Wi-Fi control, REEF-SPEC filtration and circulation systems, a revolutionary modular sump system and a one-plug control panel.
The MAX E-series combines a contemporary, rimless design with state of the art technology.


Red Sea MAX® True REEF-SPEC® for a successful reef

The Red Sea MAX 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.

Advanced LED Lighting system with integrated WiFi

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 colour LED configuration giving great colour rendition and a multitude of lighting effects. The revolutionary control system dynamically adjusts the power available to each colour by utilizing power not being used by other colours, 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 LED unit is firmly bolted to the aquarium and can be rotated to give easy access to the rear sump for all of the regular maintenance requirements or for reefscaping.

The MAX® E-170 reef aquarium system uses a single 90W 26HD LED unit.


MAX® E-Series Revolutionary Modular Sump system (patent pending)

Dual sump options for total flexibility. The MAX® E-Series feature 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.


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 2150l/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). Please note if the optional Sump Upgrade is added to the 170 it does take this space.


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

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.
