This youtube video is of the biorb coral sculptures, it shows all 3 sizes with height comparisons and what they look like in and out of a biorb aquarium.  It really is a great video to help you see what they sculptures really look like.  I definitely recommend you watch this video if you are thinking about buying a coral sculpture.  Some of the pictures online aren’t the best and video helps to see what the product looks like in 3d.

Underwater photos from some of Pinewood Studios’ most famous films are to go on display for the first time this month and Reef One aquariums are to star alongside them. biOrb’s, aways a smash hit with Films Stars, are being displayed along side some of the finest underwater photographs taken at Pinewood studio’s.

Pinewood Studios, where some of the most successful films and television shows of the last 70 years have been filmed, is displaying an exclusive collection of underwater photographs taken at the studio’s own 1.2 million litre underwater stage. The show is being supported by Reef One who are providing a collection of their award-winning fish tanks, Baby biOrb’s and biOrb LIFE aquariums to feature along side the stunning underwater imagery.

The photographs, by diver and photographer Phoebe Rudomino, offer a rare glimpse into the workings of the studio’s world famous underwater stage. The exhibition, at the Movieum in London, is made up of breathtaking images of underwater shoots for film, TV, commercials and pop videos, celebrating Britain’s creativity. Jared Leto, Sharon Stone, Matt Lucas and James Blunt are amongst the stars captured performing underwater, alongside sets from Casino Royale, The Da Vinci Code and Elizabeth: The Golden Age.

Reef One was approached by Pinewood studios to display its aquariums alongside the photography, and marketing manager Tom Crosswell said they are honoured to be working with Pinewood on such an exciting exhibition; “The exhibition showcases the imagination and ingenuity involved in producing many  breathtaking famous underwater scenes. We’re sure that placing biOrb aquariums amongst the displays will compliment the exhibition and help to bring the underwater feeling to life even further.”

The private viewing and silent auction took place on the 30th September with proceeds going to WaterAid and First Light. Both charities were inviting support for the event from their celebrity representatives including Daniel Craig, Kate Beckinsale, Sienna Miller, Orlando Bloom, Joseph Fiennes, Danny Boyle, Keira Knightley and Joanna Lumley.

The show is running for 4 weeks from the 1st October 2009 at the Movieum of London, County Hall.

Biorb Scratch Remover & Polish – What Not To Do!

November 9th, 2009


I have used biorb scratch remover and polish on the inside of my biorb tank. (I first drained & empteied it completely, then used it, then cleaned it thoroughly, then filled it back up and put my fish in it).  However, I just found out that Reef One says that the BIORB SCRATCH REMOVER SHOULD NOT BE USED ON THE INSIDE OF YOUR TANK.

If you do use it on the inside of your tank, you might kill your fish, apparently I was lucky.


I love my biorb, but I don’t love getting scratches in it when I clean my tank.  I have talked with a lot of other people who get scratches on the inside of their biorb aquariums when they are cleaning it.  The tank gets scratched when you move the ceramic media around with a biorb siphon hose or biorb cleaning pump.  Biorb ceramic media is really rough and if you move it around it WILL SCRATCH your biorb or biube.


If you are cleaning your biorb fish tank try scooping out the ceramic media with your hand first, placing it in a cup or bowl filled WITH WATER FROM YOUR TANK.  After you remove the ceramic media then siphon your tank and the waste off the bottom of your aquarium.  Then put the ceramic media back in by handfuls so you don’t scratch it.
