Red Sea is pleased to introduce the new Max 130D. The 130D includes numerous significant upgrades and improvements from the original Max 130, and reflects feedback received from thousands of Max owners, dealers and distributors since the original launch almost 2 years ago. You will readily appreciate the enhanced features of this new Max 130D over the original version, and the entire system is now easier to use, requires less maintenance and will give even higher performance levels.
Upgrades and Improvements
The following key elements differentiate the Max Coral Reef System from other marine aquariums:
`Reef Spec` Lighting, Filtration, Skimming and Circulation: Extensive research and development carried out in our laboratories clearly shows that in order to sustain delicate hard corals such as SPS species, it is essential to meet certain criteria. This is especially true when we remember that many Max aquariums may be purchased by less experienced hobbyists.
Protein Skimming, Filtration & Circulation: Delivering reef spec performance of 3x per hour aquarium volume circulation, and more than a 3:1 water to air ratio, the Turbo injected protein skimmer now has a foam adjustment feature which makes it even easier to use over a wide range of water conditions. The filtration system has been improved to ensure less water flow restrictions. A full sized, adjustable surface skimmer pulls water from the top of the aquarium where most waste collects. This upgrade reduces maintenance and aids water flow through the filter, making air bubble release far less prevalent. New biological media, improved media bags and an upgraded foam filter ensures water flows more freely through the entire filter chamber. The 130D includes a fittings accessory kit which makes it simple to add a chiller, external filter etc.
Lighting: Reef Spec lighting of 4watts per gallon is controlled by a high quality timer and consists of upgraded twin 55w T5 Power Compact lamps giving 110 watts output. An additional fan is now included in order to aid cooling during hot periods.
New Cabinet & Color Options: Available in Black and Silver, the Max 130D has a redesigned cabinet, reflecting a modern look and incorporating improved air flow through the cabinet to aid chiller efficiency.
Increased User Friendliness: The hood has been upgraded to allow 3-stage opening. It is now possible to fully open the hood for major maintenance to the aquarium. In addition the cable channel covers are now easier to use, and the main cord leaves the aquarium through a channel in the back of the aquarium rather than from the side. All of these upgrades improve the overall user-friendliness of the system. To further aid you, every Max 130D is supplied with a full length DVD that will guide you through the set up and maintenance of a MAX coral reef aquarium.
Overview: The Red Sea Max 130D combines all the technology necessary to grom and maintain a healthy reef. The Max gives aquarists an opportunity to focus on the joy and beauty of the hobby rather than on the component selection and installation. Optimal lighting, filtration, temperature and circulation make reefkeeping easier than ever before and ensures maximum success for aquarists of all levels.
The Red Sea Max features a complete 4-stage reef filtration systems, designed to provide perfect water conditions for all reef inhabitants. An adjustable height surface skimmer (a) takes water from where the highest concentration of waste materials is found.
The turbo air injection skimmer developed specifically for the max circulates the water volume through the skimmer more than 3 times per hour at an air/water ratio of 1:3 providing ideal skimming specifications for a hard coral (SPS) reef aquarium. The unique foam adjuster(b) ensures that foam can be produced in all water conditions.
Mechanical filtration removes the large organic substances while Phosophate-free active carbon acts as a large chemical sponge; absorbing dissolved organic carbons from the water. Highly porous bio-media provides a huge surface area for nitrifying bacteria. Additional equipment such as a chiller or an external filter can easily be added with the accessory kit (c) supplies with each unit.
