The MAX® E-series combines a contemporary, rimless design with state of the art technology.
The fully-featured REEF-SPEC® MAX® E system provides everything necessary in order to enable you to enjoy the beauty and diversity of your own piece of thriving coral reef, rather than worrying about component selection, suitability and compatibility.
The MAX® E-Series features the very latest in reef-keeping technology including the Red Sea’s all new ReefLED 90™ lighting with Wi-Fi control, REEF-SPEC® filtration and circulation systems, a revolutionary modular sump system and a one-plug control panel.
Advanced LED Lighting system with integrated WiFi The MAX® E-Series incorporate the all-new Red Sea ReefLED 90 lights which are designed to ensure optimal coral growth and maximum rendition of their vibrant colors.
At the heart of the unit is a compact Led array that provides a reef-safe range of REEF-SPEC light through a single REEF-SPEC Blue (23,000 Kelvin) channel that consists of an optimum combination of ultraviolet, violet and blue LEDs and an 8,000 Kelvin white channel. In addition, it has a separate dedicated 3W Moonlight channel to provide the low levels of light for reef-safe nighttime viewing.
The ReefLED includes a single optical-glass, hollow lens that creates a homogenous light giving a dramatic coral coloration and a gentle shimmer throughout the aquarium.
Red Sea Max True REEF-SPEC for a successful reef - The Red Sea Max REEF-SPEC performance criteria is the result of years of research into the sustainable growth of all corals, including the most delicate "SPS" corals, in and artificial reef environment. This knowledge, gained over 25 years, forms the basis for the specification of all Red Sea Max Aquarium systems design.
- Peace of Mind - ReefBeat is constantly in contact with your ReefLEDs and will notify when communication is lost
- Lunar Cycle - Your ReefLED can be programmed to mimic a lunar cycle, a 28-day moon phase for the 3 watt moonlight channel, for reef-safe nighttime viewing
- Acclimation - An acclimation program for new corals to get used to the light by starting at a lower intensity, gradually increasing it each day, the length of the acclimation period
- Weekly Schedule - ReefBeat stores your custom lighting schedules, using the same schedule each day, or, a different program for each day of the week
- Staggered Sunrise and Sunset - When using multiple ReefLEDs, a time delay between your lights can create a stunning sunrise and sunset effect across your aquarium
- Clouds - ReefBeat provides a natural "shading" effect for a specified period of the day, with 3 levels of random cloud activity
Start your reef with the built-in rear sump that houses the complete REEF-SPEC® filtration and circulation systems. If you decide to add additional equipment such as a calcium reactor, the modular filtration system can easily be expanded by installing an optional Red Sea in-cabinet sump.
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 customized glass sump with a dedicated constant height skimmer chamber, a flow-regulated overflow system and an integrated automatic top up.
MAX® E-Series Ultra Clear Glass 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 Circulation Twin European Eco pumps used in the MAX® E-260 provide 4,300 l/h (1100g/h) of water flow, circulating the entire water volume 16 times an hour through the filter system. MAX® E-170 is equipped with 2150l/h pump. The flow is returned to the aquarium via the discrete multidirectional “eye ball” nozzles that can be adjusted to ensure there are no dead spots within the aquarium, preventing harmful detritus from building up on the corals.
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.
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 impellor run cooler and quieter than before and the built in silencer on the air intake does a great job of eliminating skimmer noise.
MAX® E-Series Media Rack The rear sump includes a convenient media rack for Red Sea’s new highly adsorbent phosphate-free REEF-SPEC™ Carbon which is supplied with the MAX® E system, and has extra shelves for the easy addition of other chemical filter media.
Chiller Ready Kit The Red Sea MAX® E-Series sump has a dedicated place for the addition of a chiller pump as well as a convenient connection bracket for the chiller piping (Chiller and pipes are not supplied with the system).
Integrated Power Center 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 center is conveniently located in the cabinet and enables safe and easy control of all of the MAX® sub-systems.
MARINE-SPEC Cabinet The MAX® E-Series feature a marine-spec laminate cabinet fronted with weatherproof epoxy painted doors with convenient push openers as well as soft close stainless steel hinges. The cabinets are ventilated to provide convection cooling for a chiller. Offered with black or white exteriors, all cabinets have a black interior which maintains its clean appearance over time.

Yes, I would recommend this.
Pros: Beautiful and easy set
Cons: None yet.
Love this tank. It's beautiful and fits perfect in the space I wanted to keep it. Its sets up fairly simple and all its functions seem to work properly and effectively. My only complaint is the black film on the back of the sump was peeled up in 2 different corners. Also looks like one of my overflow vents doesn't sit flat against the glass like the others do. Other than that, it's great!
