Owning a thriving piece of coral reef has never been easier than with Red Sea’s new MAX S-500 aquariums.
The Red Sea MAX S-500 is an innovative plug & play, complete, full size coral reef aquarium system. It is designed to allow you to focus on the beauty and diversity of your own piece of coral reef, rather than worrying about component selection, suitability and compatibility.
Red Sea MAX S-500 aquariums are fully equipped with everything you need including features such as ultra clear glass,REEF-SPEC® lighting and filtration, customizable fascia and a one-plug control panel. Choosing the Red Sea MAX S-500 will make reefkeeping easier than ever before.
The Red Sea MAX REEF-SPEC® performance criteria is the result of Red Sea’s years of research into the sustainable growth of all corals, including the most delicate “SPS” corals, in an artificial reef environment. This knowledge, gained over 25 years, forms the basis for the specification of all MAX systems designs.
