    Red Sea MAX S-Series True REEF-SPEC® for a successful reef

    The MAX REEF-SPEC® performance criteria is the result of Red Sea’s years of research into the sustainable growth of all corals, including the most delicate “SPS” corals, in an artificial reef environment. This knowledge, gained over 25 years, forms the basis for the specification of all MAX Aquarium systems designs. 

    Red Sea Max S-650 Customized systems

    Make your Red Sea Max S-650 unique by choosing from a variety of five modern colors. 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 color 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.

    Red Sea Max S-650 Total Reef Filtration

    The Red Sea Max S complete reef filtration system starts with the surface skimmer that feeds the water to the in-cabinet sump via a flow-regulated, silent flow down-pipe. 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-650 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.

    The MAX S-650 filtration system follows the one-plug MAX concept and features a power control center with easy access to 10 individually switched power sockets for all pumps, and other accessories, safety protected with integrated circuit breakers.
