Filtration

The MAX S-System is supplied with the main system pump which also feeds the C-Skim 1800 protein skimmer and Chiller. Mechanical filtration is by sponges which are located on the feed to sump, Carbon filtration is after the skimmer compartment in the Sump.
The Sponges are washed every other week to stop the becoming biologically active.

Lighting

The MAX S-Series slide & swivel lighting system consists of three individually switched lighting units. The identical front and rear 4 x T5 units are hinged to the lighting chassis that slides across the top of the aquarium providing total access for all maintenance and reefscaping tasks. The centre unit has an additional 2 x T5 lights and 12 LED moonlights.
I have removed the control of the lighting from the built in analog timers and now control them individually through the EB6 on the Apex

Flow

The aquarium includes a discreet rear chamber housing powerful circulation pumps and a flow controlled downpipe to the in-cabinet sump. The positioning of the circulation pumps guarantees complete water circulation throughout the entire aquarium. I have added an additional 2 Tunze power heads to increase water movement around my live rock aquascaping.

My target is to get the system in a ULNS condition. But with a large fish stock this may be a bit of a challenge.

Additives

I dose Red Sea NO3:PO4-X for the control of Nitrates and Phosphate.
