Fully featured reef aquariums
Total Reefkeeping Solution
The MAX S-Series is Red Sea’s flagship reef system and features the very latest in reef-keeping technology.
Red Sea’s all-new ReefLED lighting, REEF-SPEC filtration and circulation systems, customizable fascia and a one-plug control center allow you to focus on the beauty and diversity of your own piece of coral reef, rather than worrying about component selection, suitability and compatibility.
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 colour 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 glueing, sawing and wiring has already been done for you.
Reef-safe ReefLED 90 lighting
The MAX S-Series incorporates the all-new Red Sea ReefLED 90 lights which are designed to ensure optimal coral growth and maximum rendition of their vibrant colours.
At the heart of the unit is a compact Led array that provides a reef-safe range of REEF-SPEC light through a single REEF-SPEC Blue (23,000 Kelvin) channel that consists of an optimum combination of ultraviolet, violet and blue LEDs and an 8,000 Kelvin white channel. In addition, it has a separate dedicated 3W Moonlight channel to provide low levels of light for reef-safe nighttime viewing. The ReefLED includes a single optical-glass, hollow lens that creates a homogenous light giving a dramatic coral coloration and a gentle shimmer throughout the aquarium.
ReefLED is controlled by Red Sea’s ReefBeat App which provides a wide range of easy to use functions such as random clouds, acclimation for new installations and a lunar cycle for the moonlights.
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 can also supply water to additional filtration systems, an optional chiller and/or reactors.
The 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, a REEFER 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 centre with easy access to 10 individually switched power sockets for all pumps, and other accessories, safety protected with integrated circuit breakers.
