The HYDROS Maven is an advanced aquarium controller designed for saltwater aquariums that automatically tests the water parameters. This stand-alone device frees aquarists from the need to perform regular water testing, and performs the task with greater accuracy. It does not require another controller to function. With constant testing, the Maven greatly increases aquarium stability, and can be used to manage dynamic dosing schedules and other parameters with the HYDROS System. The HYDROS Maven can automatically test Alkalinity (dKH), Nitrate (NO3), Phosphate (PO4), Calcium (Ca), and Magnesium (Mg).

Maven can perform the following tests:

  • Alkalinity (dKH) - Reagent-based, NEMI method
  • Nitrate (NO3)
  • Phosphate (PO4)
  • Calcium (Ca)
  • Magnesium (Mg)

All HYDROS controllers are meticulously engineered, assembled, and supported in the USA.


  • Tests can be individually scheduled.  CA/MG are one test. 
  • There is a total of 7 different reagents.

Maven Features:

  • External testing chamber for easy maintenance
  • Waterproof separation between the cuvette and the electronics
  • Color-coded reagent lines
  • Easy to install
  • Fully stand-alone; no other equipment is necessary for testing
  • Complete HYDROS integration for enhanced redundancy
  • Made in the USA

Maven Includes:

  • Maven Controller
  • Power Supply
  • Sample Reagents

Maven Specifics:

Dimensions (LxWxH): 9.5 x 4.25 x 11in

What you can expect from your HYDROS Smart Device

  • Control your HYDROS device(s) from anywhere in the world using the technologically advanced HYDROS cloud-based app
  • Ability to monitor and control your HYDROS device(s) locally through WiFi
  • A fast dual-core 32-bit processor that allows control decisions to be made within each device
  • The user sets the alerts and notifications
  • Internal health monitoring to report voltages, currents, CPU status, and the internal temperature of each device
  • HYDROS Command Bus connections to transfer data and power to devices

Quick & Easy Setup

There is no complicated programming language to learn. If you can operate a smartphone, you can be the operator of a smart aquarium—tap, drag, press, or flick to adjust settings using intuitive icons and simple menus. Schedule each component in your aquarium life support system to run at a specific time, frequency, or intensity.  You can also use real-time data and easily configure more complex actions.

12V Drive Port - 2 Available

The Drive Ports provide switched 12V DC power for running small HYDROS aquarium devices. The Control continuously monitors the exact current supplied by each port, so you will be immediately notified if a motor or pump quits drawing current or draws too much.

Each drive port can handle up to 1.5A, and the entire device can handle up to 3A in total.

Drive Ports Currently Support:

  • Auto Top-Off (ATO) pumps
  • Dosing pumps
  • Cooling fans
  • Cabinet LED lights
  • Solenoids - 1/4in water and CO2 control 
  • Steering valves and relays
  • Diaphragm pumps

Sense Port - 2 Available

The Sense Port is a new concept in aquarium parameter measurement. HYDROS devices include several Sense Ports. A Sense Port is a generic input port that can accept data from numerous different types of sensors.

Sense Ports Currently Support:

  • Temperature sensor - Either air or water
  • Fluid level - Optical sensors to measure liquid levels
  • Leak detection - Monitoring for both point and wide area leak detection
  • Flow rate - Measures the amount of fluid flowing through a pipe
  • Total dissolved solids - Dual measurement of the TDS levels from your RODI system

Command Bus - 2 Available

The Command bus communicates with other HYDROS devices for the ultimate redundant failsafe to any HYDROS system.

Control up to 8 WiFi Devices

The HYDROS App allows you to create rules and set schedules to control our 4-Outlet WiFi AC Power Strips and Smart Outlets. Quickly turn on or off different pieces of aquarium equipment like pumps, powerheads, lights, algae scrubbers, UV sterilizers, protein skimmers, and more.
