Superb Hydra 26 HD LED lighting:

With 26 diodes, Hydra 26 HD LED lighting offers a full spectrum performance. The lighting innovation combines colour and power to give a remarkably improved performance by producing a limitless number of colour spectrum combinations to suit the individual needs and demands of your aquarium, making the lighting solutions a superb option for the depth of the Red Sea MAX E-Series tanks. As one of the most efficient pro level lighting solutions available and with a 90w power consumption, Hydra 26 HD lighting provides low energy consumption with the lowest heat output possible. By dramatically adjusting the power made available to each colour and borrowing power from where it is not being used, the LEDs deliver the most beautifully vivid spectrum to an aquarium tank in the most economical way allowing the user to switch up certain colours to meet specific needs, whilst lowering other ones.

The Hydra LED has been cleverly integrated with a unique built-in wifi system which allows the user to not only set daily on-off functions, but also adjust maximum power outputs assigned to specific colour schemes. The smartphone-friendly controller is also compatible with tablets and wifi-enabled computers and allows you to select your favourite weather effects, lighting schemes and cloud coverage via a simple swipe of a button!

In-cabinet sump upgrade with plumbing (optional upgrade for additional cost):

Not only do the Red Sea MAX E-Series aquariums come complete with all of the electrical components needed to run as a full marine reef system with filtration equipment that is built into the back of the aquarium and hidden from view, but they can easily be expanded by installing an optional Red Sea in-cabinet sump. If at the beginning or at a later date, it is desired to expand the capabilities of the standard aquarium, this can easily be done by purchasing the upgrade kit which consists of a glass sump with a dedicated constant height skimmer chamber, an integrated automatic top up, and a flow-regulated overflow.  As an easy advancement solution, livestock can be left in the aquarium during the installation of the Sump upgrade – a complete hassle-free process!

The additional sump pipework needed for the upgrade includes a flow regulated downpipe, an overflow pipe and a return pipe. Offering a unique way to customize your plug & play aquarium, the Red Sea Max E-Series Pipework comes with all of the necessary equipment needed to build onto both the Red Sea MAX E-Series 170 litre and 260 litre versions. The piping for the Red Sea Max E-Series will not only upscale the unit’s professional ability by allowing for larger volumes and stocking capability, but also guarantees a flawless silent operation and attaches to the series' multiple bulk head without any need for gluing, cutting or emptying of the aquarium itself. The equipment which runs from the sump filter system, including all pipwework such as a regulated downpipe, an overflow pipe and a return pipe is stored away underneath the discreet cabinet.

Max E’s professional surface skimmer:

The heart of the filtration houses the highly-professional MSK900 REEF-SPEC protein skimmer – a component which features an adjustable outlet gate with a media rack for Red Sea’s new highly absorbent phosphate-free carbon. The MAX-E’s surface skimmer is built with removable comb section to facilitate easy cleaning, plus a pair of multi-directional eyeball nozzles return the flow to the aquarium whilst offering an easy-to-adjust feature to ensure there are no dead spots within the tank.
