Product Description

Watch Red Sea MAX® S-Series full video presentation



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 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.





Advanced LED lighting system with integrated WiFi

The MAX® S-Series incorporate 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 26HD, the MAX®-S achieves excellent performance at a fraction of the running costs of using traditional T5 Fluorescent lighting.


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 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.



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 brakers.
