Red Sea Max-E 250 - 69gal Salt Water Aquarium

Fully featured 250 liter/69 gallon, Plug & Play® Salt water aquarium system

Advanced LED Lighting system with integrated WiFi

The MAX® E – Series incorporate the all-new Hydra 26™ HD LED lighting, providing the most up to date LED technology to give superb performance and a remarkably user-friendly interface.

The Hydra 26™ HD unit offers a full spectrum, 7 color LED configuration giving great color rendition and a multitude of lighting effects.

The revolutionary control system dynamically adjusts the power available to each colour by utilizing power not being used by other colors, effectively enabling selected channels to be ‘boosted’ to above 100% output. The lighting is fully controllable via a built-in WiFi which is compatible with iOS and Android devices and with any WiFi-enabled Mac or PC.

At only 90w power consumption per Hydra 26HD, the MAX® E achieves excellent performance at a fraction of the running costs of using traditional T5 Fluorescent lighting. The LED unit is firmly bolted to the aquarium and can be rotated to give easy access to the rear sump for all of the regular maintenance requirements or for reefscaping.

The MAX® E-170 reef aquarium system uses a single 90W 26HD LED unit while the MAX® E-260 reef aquarium system has 2 units that are seamlessly paired together by the Wi-Fi controller.
