Fully Featured Reef Aquariums Up to 650 Litres
Owning a thriving piece of coral reef has never been easier than with Red Sea’s new MAX S-Series range of aquariums.

Carefully designed to support even the most delicate stony (SPS) corals, the MAX S-Series seamlessly integrates all of the necessary systems and components with contemporary style.
Total Reefkeeping Solution
The Max S-Series is an innovative plug & play, complete, full size coral reef aquarium system. It is designed to 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 aquariums are fully equipped with everything you need including features such as ultra clear glass, reef spec lighting and filtration, customizable fascia and a one-plug control panel.

Choosing the Red Sea MAX S-Series will make reefkeeping easier than ever before.

Customized systems
Make your Max S unique by choosing from a variety of six modern colours. The cabinet side panels and doors are attached to a marine spec aluminum frame and are not load bearing so they 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 will add a significant resale value to the MAX S-Series.

All external surfaces use weather resistant polyurethene 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 annodized aluminum frame. Designed for simple home assembly, all of the glueing, sawing and wiring has already been done for you.

The saltwater-resistant colour trim around the top and bottom of the aquarium is long-lasting and can be replaced at any time should a different colour scheme be preferred.

Sophisticated, Upgradeable Lighting System
The unique MAX S-Series slide & swivel lighting system consists of three individually switched lighting units.

The identical front and rear 4 x T5 units are hinged to the lighting chassis that slides across the top of the aquarium providing total access for all maintenance and reefscaping tasks.

The centre unit has an additional 2 x T5 lights and LED moonlights. Additional configurations for the centre unit will be available in the future. Changeable front and side colour trim panels match the aquarium and cabinet. A dual timer lighting controller is included as part of the complete system controller in the cabinet.

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.

Notes:- Specifications may vary between the models. Chiller not included
