MAX® C-250 REEF-SPEC® T5 lighting
Why is Red Sea not yet using a complete LED lighting system?
The promise of a MAX® coral reef system is that it provides a complete, plug & play, reef spec® aquarium for all levels of hobbyists
without having to worry about the choice, compatibility and suitability of the equipment.
All of the products that Red Sea develops for reef hobbyists, including the MAX systems, start with understanding the biological
needs of the corals. This approach has enabled us to develop our "Reef-Spec" which defines the environmental conditions
necessary for successfully maintaining SPS corals in a reef aquarium.
Lighting is an important part of the Reef-Spec definition and our research over many years has clearly shown that T5 fluorescent
lighting provides all of the needs of corals in a simple and safe way. Furthermore, T5 usage requires no expertise or understanding
by the hobbyist and will support all of the major species of SPS corals in all areas of the MAX aquarium.
The move from Metal Halide and Fluorescent lighting to LED lighting for aquariums in general (and reef tanks in particular) has not
been driven by the needs of the corals, but by the move within the lighting industry towards more energy efficient systems.
Without getting into the technical details, it is sufficient to say that there are significant differences between LED lighting and T5,
and unless LED light is applied knowledgeably to an aquarium it can cause harm to the corals. Many hobbyists are investing a lot
of time in learning how to adapt the LED lights that are available on the market to their reefs, with various levels of success.
In keeping with the lighting industry's advances in this field, Red Sea's goal is to be able to provide MAX aquariums with LED
lighting that can safely ensure at least similar coral growth, coloration, vitality and longevity to that currently achieved in our T5driven MAX systems.
Red Sea's development team is currently evaluating LED lighting for use with the MAX aquariums and we hope to be able to offer
a reef safe LED lighting solution within the near future.
