Detailed Description

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.

Sophisticated 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.

Integrated Power Centre

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 brakers.
