The BiOrb Filtration System Keeps Your BiOrb Fish Tank Cleaner, Longer!


Here at we believe that the unique filtration of the BiOrb fish tanks is what sets these tanks apart. A beautiful Biorb fish tank that looks elegant in your home or office and requires less maintenance and leaves you more time to enjoy your tank, how is this a bad plan?

One of the best aspects of a BiOrb fish tank is the filtering system that keeps your tank clean for long periods at a time. The BiOrb tanks spherical shape helps with the filtration system. As the air from the BiOrb air pump pushes the water up out of the BiOrb bubble tube and reaches the surface of the water. The current of the water then pushes the water out and down to the bottom of the tank. The diagram below illustrates the cleaning benefits of the BiOrb Ceramic Media and the BiOrb Service Kit.  The filtration system does an excellent job of maintaining the cleanliness of your tank but that does not exclude you from doing your part. Approximately every 4 to 6 weeks you will need to change out your BiOrb service kit. Along with that, a 20-30% water change will be necessary. While you change the water you can wipe down your tank with the BiOrb cleaning pads and remove any sludge that might have attached to the side of the tank. If you have any built up algae we have a wonderful BiOrb algae cleaner to help get rid of that. Lastly, it is wise to use the BiOrb siphon hose in order to get any gunk that has built up at the bottom of your tank. If you clean your tank on schedule you will have a good looking tank with happy and healthy pet fish. Cleanliness of your tank is a vital aspect of your pet fish’s health. If your BiOrb tank is contaminated the chance of your fish getting sick increases. Once your pet fish gets sick you might need to buy fish antibiotics to help nurse it back to health. Avoid unnecessary heartache and costs and maintain a clean BiOrb fish tank.

1. Air driven filtration system creates vigorous water flow and a constantly changing water surface. This maintains oxygen saturation.

2. The circular flow of water then collects any fish waste on its way down.

3. It draws the waste through the ceramic media where the natural biological filtration absorbs some toxins. The freshly oxygenated water also feeds the bacteria.

4. Any remaining waste is trapped in the sponge cartridge. The water then passes through resin particles and natural stabilizers to remove toxic substances and keep the pH levels ­­­constant.

5. The clean water is then oxygenated as it flows back up the bubble tube to repeat the cycle.
