About this deal

The tank base should ideally be cleaned once a week to remove uneaten fish food and waste - if you use a gravel cleaner it will remove waste from base of tank and upper foam and it will also remove some water from the tank allowing for a partial water change. Even when a full cycle (0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, 0 nitrate) is achieved weekly maintenance is essential to keep the tank clean and healthy. What is the job of infrared light and what is the lifetime? The Infrared & RGB LEDs that are in the biOrb EARTH fulfil the rest of the needed wavelength for reptiles. Infrared wavelengths are the primary terrestrial wavelengths known to penetrate the skin. This means that they are more effective at heating animals.​ Infrared-A is also known as ‘near infrared’.​ It is the shortest wavelength within the group: 750-1400 nanometers. That is because it is the closest to visible light – that which humans can see. It has a high energy and is beneficial for animals. This is because the photons penetrate into the dermis of the skin. Infrared replicates 850nm and 940nm. But do keep in mind that the lighting and filter will need an outlet within them and hence, as long as that requirement is satisfied, you can place this aquarium anywhere you choose. Perfect for Beginner This kit comes with 2kg Biogravel, coarse and medium density foams, fine pad and gel filter starter balls. When it comes to the cons, one gripe that we do have with this aquarium is with the price tag. Sure, the tank itself is sturdy and made with high-quality materials, however for the price that we pay for it, we did expect it to come with some accessories which it didn’t.

Is there a water level indicator installed in the water tank? The water level cannot be seen in the APP. However, the APP will let you know when you will need to refill your water reservoir. The biOrb aquarium comes with an incredibly unique design. Not only is it able to successfully subvert the generic square shape, but with the improved LED lighting, this is a standout choice among all other accessories in the house. Why should I use Humidimist? Tap water has a lot of impurities in it. It’ll clog and calcify the misting unit and it’ll also settle as watermarks on the inside of your globe. Humidimist is perfectly balanced to give your plants the humidity they need, but not to damage the delicate components in your biOrb AIR. What is the job of UVB light and what is the lifetime? UV-B stimulates vitamin D3 synthesis from the precursor vitamin D2. Lifetime of the light is 20,000 hours.When it comes to the positives, let us first start off with what this aquarium is primarily made up of. Instead of glass, biOrb chooses acrylic as the go-to manufacturing material for this particular model. What can I grow in my biOrb AIR? Depending on whether you choose AIR 30 or 60 your choice of plants is wide. AIR 60 is specifically designed for tropical plants, whereas the AIR 30 can support tropical, temperate and arid species. The key is to choose plants that grow together in the same climate. For example, you would not choose a tropical plant like an orchid and an arid cactus together. They require two very different climates. For clarity, we list the plants under their Latin names below. Many of them are also known under more common names. Suitable arid plants include; Aloe, Conophytum, Echeveria, Haworthia, Sansevieria, Sempervivum, Senecio, Austrocylindropuntia, Astrophytum, Cleistocactus, Dolichothele, Echinopsis, Euphorbia lactea compacta, Acanthocereus tetragonus, Ferocactus, Lobivia, Mammillaria, Crassula, Lithops, Parodia magnifica. Suitable temperate plants include; Tillandsia Cyanea, Tillandsia Festucoides, Tillandsia Ionantha Rubra, Tillandsia Brachycaulos x Abdita, Tillandsia Fillifolia, Tillandsia Ionantha Fuego, Tillandsia Tricolor Melanocrater, Dionaea muscipula, Drosera Aliceae, Pinquicula, Sarracenia, Heliamphora nutans x heterdoxa. Suitable tropical plants include; Fittonia Skeleton bicolour, Fittonia Red, Fittonia Lemon, Fittonia White, Peperomia, Rotundifolia, Peperomia Angulata, Peperomia verticillata, Peperomia mixed, Ball / Pillow Moss, Micro Phalaenopsis, Ceratostylis Retisquama, Haraella Ordorata, Psygmorchis pusilla, Ornithidium Sophrontis, Ornithophora Radicans. Can I use tap water in the reservoir? We only recommend to use Humidimist. Using tap water will make the guarantee void. Reason for the need to use Humidimist is that we cannot guarantee the functionality of the product worldwide due to variations in water quality. Can I add fertilisers to the misting reservoir? No, anything added to the fogger reservoir will be vaporized into mist and eventually precipitate on to all internal surface possibly causing irreparable damage.

Change/clean the filter more regularly. Leave a maximum of one month between changes until problem subsides. Forcing bubbles of air up the central tube, the filtration system ensures that 100% of the water capacity is circulated around the BiOrb and through the filters. This creates oxygen for the fish to breathe and removes carbon dioxide. Why is my Misting Unit only working occasionally? The misting unit will only mist when the humidity has dropped. The biOrb AIR has been designed to retain humidity and reduce the need for repeated topping up of the misting reservoir.

Can I use tap water in the base of my biOrb AIR? Yes, where it is not turned into mist for humidity, it is okay to use ordinary tap water in the base of your biOrb AIR.
