    beautiful object but always get advice, 21 Oct. 2007

    Fish Friend (Madrid) –

    This review is from: Biorb Fish Tank 60 Aquarium Tropical (Misc.)
    It was difficult to rate this item and I’ll try to explain why. I own this 60 litre biOrb and I love it. It’s a beautiful object. However, I’ve been keeping fancy goldfish for a couple of years and I’ve learnt quite a bit about then in that time. I wouldn’t recommend this aquarium to a novice and to be honest I think any pet equipment should be bought with extensive advice from an expert in a good pet shop, to do right by your animals, (and to be honorable if they have given you their time and expertise you shouldn’t then run off and look for it cheaper on the internet!!).

    I wouldn’t recommend the biorb for all fish. Goldfish which are especially messy create a lot of waste. The celebrated ceramic filter medium surely does provide a good home to all those helpful bacteria but it also means that food which falls to the bottom of the aquarium falls between the ceramic pieces, where it is out of reach to your fish and sits there decomposing and contaminating the water and maybe leaving your fish hungry if they are slow feeders. My fish are black moors and celestials which feed off the bottom. If your fish are bottom feeders this could be a problem. Traditional aquaria are typically floored with sand or small gravel which is much better for bottom feeders. So bear this in mind.

    If you are more experienced with aquaria you could do what I did which is cover the ceramic media with a layer of mesh and cover this with a layer of dark gravel (dark colour also reduces stress for fish). I don’t know if the manufacturers would agree but I have had this in place for 3 months and it is working well re filtration. I have no problems with levels of contamination. However it is not an operation that I would recommend to a beginner and it does make it more difficult to change the other filter element, the cartridge. If the manufacturers could provide their own proprietary solution for covering the floor with small gravel I’d give this product 5 stars.

    In summary, a beautiful object which can look spectacular if you choose your plants and ornaments well. Not for all types of fish, get advice before buying this aquarium. P.S. You can get generic replacements for the filter media used inside the filter cartridge here. Buy in bulk save yourself a lot of money. PPS Practice regular cleaning of the bottom with a syphon (which the manufactures can sell you if you like) Fish should live for years, if yours don’t last then something is wrong, find our why.

    Stylish – Practical – Easy to Maintain, 10 Mar. 2010

    This 60 liter Biorb is my first attempt at pet ownership with my partner. I have so far been impressed with the Biorb, it looks very stylish in my living room and I have 3 Orandas living in there at the moment. I would say that the Biorb is not the best value for money tank, but it is an ideal all in one package, and I did not have to hunt around for different materials in order to set it up. I would warn future Biorb owners that the 60 liter version is extremely heavy when filled. It warped my table and I had to buy a new, sturdier table to keep it. It scratches very easily, and I would not recommend the green magnetic cleaner as it has lightly scratched the tank all around. I have not had much success with my fish husbandry so far – but i do not think this is down to the Biorb. I would recommend getting the sucker cleaner that hoovers out the tank.

    I am having trouble keeping the water clear. Water is a yellow colour. I must say fish are fine and swimming around happily. I have repeated water changes making more water each time . Then took it back to start again. Water has now turned yellow again
