Product Information

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 utilising 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.The MAX E-170 reef aquarium system uses a single 90W 26HD 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 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. 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 customised glass sump with a dedicated constant height skimmer chamber, a flow-regulated overflow system and an integrated automatic top up.

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 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 impeller run cooler and quieter than before and the built in silencer on the air intake does a great job of eliminating skimmer noise.

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 centre is conveniently located in the cabinet and enables safe and easy control of all of the MAX sub-systems.
