If you're looking for a simple starter aquarium then the baby biOrb is for you. You can be up and running in no time, everything you need is in one box. It really is a case of just adding water and fish. 

Does small mean unhealthy? 

Not at all, the baby biOrb actually has a biological filtration system that is bigger than any other similar sized aquarium. In fact, many aquariums twice its size have less biological filtration. 

To maintain your baby biOrb all you need to do is simply replace the filter cartridge every six weeks and change a third of the water every two weeks. 

The baby biOrb is an illuminated aquarium. 

For your peace of mind, the light and pump are low voltage and both are backed by a 12 month guarantee. The aquarium itself is made from acrylic which is ten times stronger than glass.

Mia Williams (Katie Jarvis) is 15 years old and lives in a shabby apartment block with her mother, Joanne (Kierston Wareing), and younger sister, Tyler (Rebecca Griffiths). Mia is a reckless and rebellious teenager who frequently argues with her mother and sister and has run afoul of the authorities at school, leading to her being suspended. With plenty of time on her hands, Mia spends her days drinking when she can find alcohol and partying in a empty flat near her apartment. Joanne is a single mother, and she's begun dating a new man, Connor (Michael Fassbender); when Joanne brings him home to meet the girls, Mia is immediately attracted to him, and it's soon clear Connor feels the same way about her. Mia attempts to seduce Connor to take him away from her mother, and when she succeeds, Joanne's greatest anger is not with the man who has slept with her underaged daughter, but the girl who is now a rival for the affections of her lover.

    Underrated!, 26 April 2013

    This review is from: biOrb Baby Aquarium, 15 Litre, 30 x 32 cm, Silver, LED light (Misc.)
    I’m a novice fishkeeper. I also have a 60l rectangular tank. This ‘regular’ tank is quicker to clean out. But the Biorbs are wrongly criticised. The reef advice needs to be ditched. On the fishlore forums you will find lengthy posts about how to look after the biorb. It’s just like a regular tank.

    Do a fishless cycle,it can take 2 months.
    Never replace the spongy filter as reef advises, swish it in dirty tank water with water changes, change water once a week, fish like clean water. This is more important with a small Surface area.

    when sponge falls apart, cut it in half and put half a new one in. Then after a month put the other half in, to avoid ccling the Tank a second time.

    When cleaning the the tank never empty it all out. This will stress the fish and could lead to disease and death. There’s no need to to this unless there’s a big problem in the tank work around the fish.

    wash anything frm the tank in dirty tank water never clean tap water.

    Get low light plants preferably those that don’t need a substrate and won’t need, ferts or co2, will help with keeping nitrates and ammonia down, also help with algae. I.e hornwort, pennywort, java fern, Marimo moss balls. Co2 liquid form will help keep algae at bay too if you decide to use it. Use the smallest amount dont want to kill the fish.

    Keep the water 2-3 inches above filter outlet, this will give maximum surface area for fish.

    Its a small tank so microfish or one betta. I wasn’t sure about a betta in this tank but he seems happy, not shy at all.

    Negatives:

    the tank distorts viewing, with one betta often I think the fish has disappeared, but he soon reappears. I suppose if you have more than one fish it won’t be an issue.

    Only tiny fish can be kept I.e minnows, chilli rasboras or a single betta. I wouldn’t keep a goldfish in there, it’s a shame reef promote this.

    Because its a round tank the back cant be painted . So if you have naff decor it will show through, as do the heater wire. But with dense planting this can be solved.

    can’t use no substrate other than the ceramic filter stones as it will prevent it filtering. but apparently pea sized gravel has been successfully used. The only other way is to remove the filter and pump and use a regular mini filter then any substrate may be used. ( I may do this in the future)

    be economical with feeding to avoid polluting the water before the week is over.

    The pump is crazy noisy, what were the manufacturers think cheap cheap cheap? I can’t relax in my lounge. I recommend the eheim 3701 pump. On full power it is loud but nothing like the biorb pump. On the lowest setting it is very quiet. Just be sure to separate wires to reduce vibration. If you have a cupboard it’s totally silent, all I can hear are the bubbles.

    It’s overpriced for a tiny tank, a large rectangular tank can be bought for this price, and it will be easier for the novice, plus you could have more fish.

    I love the tank aesthetically it is beautiful, but don’t expect to keep lots of fish in it, I wouldn’t recommend it to someone starting out in fishkeeping especially if they want a community tank, save your money for something bigger.

    Baby Biorb – a waste of money., 19 Jan 2012
    By 
    KC

    This review is from: biOrb Baby Aquarium, 15 Litre, 30 x 32 cm, Silver, LED light (Misc.)
    I was so excited getting the Baby Biorb for my daughter’s birthday, 9 months ago. Since then, we’ve lost 9 fish – that’s one a month. I followed the instructions to the letter, have replaced the filter every 6 weeks, cleaned the tank weekly, used the right food, replaced the water (1/3) regularly and used the various sachets suggested for the tank, and patiently replaced each of the lightbulbs that blew after only 2 weeks.

    It’s cost a lot more than I thought a fishtank should, but it looked good and we wanted to keep it.

    But, today when I got home and found the two small guppies boiled to death because of the heater malfunctioning, my patience with this tank, and all its Biorb accessories, has run out! I’m not even going to try to re-sell it, or freecycle it as it would just cause problems for the next poor soul that gets drawn into the ‘Biorb’ myth!

    You’re better off buying a cheap tank without all the frills.

    Best British film since Harry Brown, 20 April 2010

    This review is from: Fish Tank [DVD] [2009] (DVD)
    Fishtank is the story of Mia (Katie Jarvis); a 15-year old living on an estate in Barking. Behind closed doors she aspires of being a dancer and practices religiously, away from prying eyes, afraid to show any weakness to even her family. When her mother’s new boyfriend, the charming Connor (Michael Fassbender) moves in and supports her in her dancing, she starts her coming of age and the lines between a friendship and her feelings start to blur.

    I thought this film was really something special, completely different from the usual fare and had me captivated from beginnning to end. The relationship between Mia and Connor is electric, as he plays the supporting friend fantastically and you are not sure if it is completely one-sided or if there is mutual chemistry. Fishtank is well shot and illustrates the harshness of London council estates and what one must become in order to survive and persevere. More importantly, it shows Mia burning desire to escape her life through her aspirations to dance at any cost.

    Katie Jarvis is an excellent actress for someone of her age and shows a full set of emotions, with both angry and sensitive moments, you really start to feel for her in her trials and tribulations. The film is more of a snapshot of her life than a biography; as it begins and ends rather abruptly and nothing is really left resolved at the end, despite this it is a very powerful film and will leave you thinking about some of the issues broached well after the credits have rolled. Highly recommended!!

    This review is from: Fish Tank [DVD] [2009] (DVD)
    ‘Fish Tank’ is by far the best film of 2009. Cinematically, it is a masterpiece. The tough world of a council estate in Essex is conveyed powerfully and unsentimentally. Arnold depicts the harsh conditions that predominantly white working-class people live under truthfully, without subordinating her art to the usual tired left-wing critiques of poverty. She shows us behaviour which would normally be perceived as aberrant – such as primary school children smoking – without passing judgement. Life is harsh in Arnold’s film, but there is plenty of it. ‘Fish Tank’ portrays society’s most desperate and ignored and their means of escape – young Mia (Katie Jarvis) wants to be a dancer; her neurotic mother (Kierston Wareing) finds escape through sex and alcohol, as does her mother’s handsome and mysterious boyfriend (Michael Fassbender).

    There is no Ken Loach style sting-in-the-tail in this film. Arnold is not out to make explicit political points, but one thing she does go out to show is the reality behind the lives of the so called ‘underclass’, people whom society demonises and slaps ASBOs on in the hope that they will disappear into a corner. The council estate and its surrounding area, the docklands around Tilbury, are skilfully rendered by beautiful, atmospheric camerawork – there are moments we see shots of the moon and a solitary tree blowing in the wind, subtly contrasting nature with the manmade dull grey concrete tower blocks and estate that Mia and all the other residents inhabit.

    On the DVD extras for her previous feature film ‘Red Road’, Arnold commented on how amidst the poverty there is life and vibrancy to the people who live on council estates. This was not sentimental glamorisation or cheap sympathy on her part for Britain’s poor, but an affirmation and assertion that there is life burning intensely in these places. Her observations expose how shamefully ignorant we are to pass judgement on our fellow living, breathing citizens and not see their dreams as valuable to society – that is far more antisocial and deleterious to society than an eight-year old child puffing on a cigarette.

    A brilliant, life affirming film that is at times shocking and unsettling, yet restores the soul. This is not typical coming-of-age cinema fare Don’t miss this film: life is too short!
