Product Description - MAX-E Series (260 Liters) (70G)

Popular Size All-In-One Plug & Play Reef Systems

The popular size MAX-E systems come fully-equipped with all the essential gear, allowing you to quickly set up a new tank and enjoy its beauty without worrying about component selection and compatibility.

Every piece of equipment incorporated in the MAX-E systems was designed on the basis of Red Sea’s 30 years of research on the needs of corals in artificial environments, resulting in optimal coral growth and coloration.

Explore Features:

Surface Skimmer

The surface skimmer enables highly effective filtration by ensuring that only water from the aquarium surface is passed to the rear filtration compartment. The surface skimmer is easily removable for periodic cleaning.

Protein Skimmer

The MAX-E skimmers have a 900 lph/239 gph water flow and 250 lph/66 gph air flow, implementing Red Sea’s REEF-SPEC criteria and passing the entire water volume through the skimmers approximately 3 times per hour (with a 3 to 1 water to air ratio), which provides sufficient filtration for even the most delicate SPS corals.

Multidirectional Eyeball Nozzle

The filtered water returns to the display tank via a multidirectional, adjustable eyeball nozzle, ensuring there are no stagnant spots within the aquarium.

Media Rack

Bubble Trap Sponge

The bubble trap sponge prevents air bubbles from returning to the aquarium.

Circulation Pump

The MAX-E comes with a 2,150 lph/568 gph Sicce return pump, which implements Red Sea’s REEF-SPEC criteria and circulates the entire system water volume about 10 times an hour.
