Red Sea Max 250 - The Complete 65 Gallon Coral Reef System
The MAX 250 has been designed as a highly specified complete 250 liter coral reef aquarium system. Each component has been specifically designed to work as part of the total system, guaranteeing compatibility and performance suited to maintaining even the most delicate stony (sps) corals.

The following key elements differentiate the Max Coral Reef System from other marine aquariums:
Red Sea MAX Aquarium
‘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 250 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 6 39w T5 Linear Power Compact lamps giving 234 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 & Pearl White. Cabinet reflects a modern look and designed for proper air flow throughout 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 250 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 250 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.

Filtration & Circulation

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.

Excellent!

Comments: Some people have complained that this tank is noisy... I have used it for years with just a hum in the background, if you are having fan or pump issues you should contact Red Sea because their customer service is the best.. I had a fan go out and I sent them an email asking what i needed to do to replace it and they just sent me a new one, with no questions.. This is a great product that is easy to use and the company provides great service.. I highly recommend. I will be buying the next size up if they ever build it...

Awesome! Product Review by Austin (Posted on 1/15/10)

Comments: Red Sea really did their research with this aquarium. It has everything a beginner and expert alike would need to get going. The starter kit makes it easy to set up the tank with salt and the appropriate chemicals. Filtration is located behind the tank in special compartments out of view from the tank. No pumps or cords can be seen--only the beauty of the fish, live rocks, and invertebrates. The lighting is superb and offers the tank owner a chance to grow some really unique and special corals. One thing that's really cool about Red Sea is that when you call customer support with any questions, a real, live person answers the phone! This is almost unheard of in business today. You absolutely can't go wrong with this system. I have no doubt it was worth every penny of the cost. If you're going to get a system, why not go for the best! This is it!
