Biorb Bubble Tube Cleaner

January 3rd, 2012

Recently Reef One has come out with the Biorb Bubble Tube Cleaner new product that helps to keep the biorb aquarium cleaner, it is the biorb bubble tube cleaner.  It is a tool that helps to quickly and easily clean and scrub the outside and inside of the bubble tube.  In the past I have bought a bristle pipe cleaner to clean the bubble tube which has worked pretty well.  However if the bristles are really stiff it can scratch the tube.  The new bubble tube cleaner has two different pieces.  One is for specifically cleaning the outside of the bubble tube and the other is for cleaning the inside of the bubble tube.  We haven’t used the bubble tube cleaner yet, so if you have experience with it let us know.

You can buy the bubble tube cleaner here – Biorb Bubble Tube Cleaner

The biorb flow is the newest tank in the Reef One Biorb Aquarium Set.  It is 4 gallons and uses the same Biorb Service Kit filtration as other biorb tanks.  It comes with a newly designed air pump and an led light instead of the regular light that uses halogen bulbs… which saves you the cost of buying those expensive light bulbs.

Biorb Flow Aquarium – The New Pico Tank by Biorb

May 17th, 2011

Reef One recently revealed the Biorb Flow, the newest Biorb aquarium to the Reef One Biorb Aquariums.  In our first opinion it looks great.  It is a 4 gallon tank (15 liters) and is rectangular rather than round.  It resembles the biorb life aquariums more than the traditional globe shaped biorb aquariums.  Like the other Reef One tanks it comes with everything you need to set it up.  We really don’t’ have much information about the tank yet because it isn’t available in the U.S. but when it is we will let everyone know.  If anyone in the UK has experience with it please share it with us by posting comments about it.  In addition, it  works well with the biorb service kit filter system.  It uses the same filters as all the other tanks, so if you have a stash of old filters and want to get this new tank, you can still use your filters.

We also heard rumors the tank should be available in the United States probably around July of this year.

Fish Mox, Fish Zole, & Other Fish Antibiotics

April 18th, 2011

Chances are, if you have a biorb or some other type of fish tank for long enough you have had at least one of your fish get sick.  Some people don’t get attached to fish, but others treat them like part of their family, and are devastated when a fish gets sick or dies, especially if the fish is their child’s pet.

There are a lot of different fish medications you can try depending on what your fish has, different types of sicknesses respond to different types of medicine.  Some useful medicines for fish are fish antibiotics, such as Fish Mox, Fish Zole, & Fish Flex.  These antibiotics are over the counter and made and sold for aquarium and fish use.  They are manufacturered by Thomas Labs, a pet pharmeceutical company that has been around for over 30 years.

Fish Zole is often used in discus and other fish that get hole in head disease.  The main ingredient in fish zole is metronidazole and it is also useful against a number of pathogentic bacteria associated with ornamental fish diseases, including areomonas and pseudomonas genera and mysobacterial group (gill diseases, chondrococcus). It is useful in the control of “Hole-in-the-Head” and “Angel Problems” in Cichlid and Discus.

These fish antibiotics are sold at a number of online retailers and can be bought in different quantities.  So the next time your fish gets sick see if one of these medicines might help your fish and find a reputable place to buy them.

Some fish are really expensive, and after you’ve had a fish for a while its easy to get attached to them and if they get a bacterial infection it can be devastating, especially if you have children.  There are lots of different medications on the market for treating fish illnesses and this post discusses some of the Fish Antibiotics made for aquarium and fish use, specifically Fish MoxFish FlexFish Zole, & Fish Pen.

Fish Mox -

Fish Mox is Amoxicillin and is sold in two strengths, 250 mg, which is called fish mox, and 500 mg which is called Fish Mox Forte.  Fish Mox is used to treat common bacterial infections in aquariums and for other fish illnesses.  It can be bought through multiple pet retailers online and is much cheaper than going to a vet for a prescription of the same strength amoxicillin…I’m not sure I’ve ever even heard of someone going to the vet for a pet fish.

Biorb 105 Liter – The Newest, Biggest Biorb

January 24th, 2011
biorb 105

biorb 105 - 28 gallon aquarium

We have heard lots of rumors and seen a few pictures of the new Biorb 105 and wanted to share what we know.   The Biorb 105 is a new tank is about 28 gallons and is 105 liters.  It is currently for sale only in Europe but will hit the U.S. sometime within 2011.  It will have the same biorb service kit filtration as all the other biorb tanks but it does come with a stronger air pump to circulate the water and help with the filtration.

We actually haven’t seen one or tested one out, so we don’t have any information or reviews yet, but you can be sure that when they are available in the U.S. we will test it out and talk to others as well and find out how it runs and if its worth the price. (U.S. prices have not been released yet)

Biorb Reviews is Back

October 18th, 2010

It feels good to be back at it with Biorb Reviews, it has been a while since we have put any new posts, and we apologize to anyone who had questions that didn’t get answered.  Things in our lives have been a little crazy as I’m sure everyone can relate to.  Things are starting to get back to normal and we should again be contributing regularly to Biorb Reviews the latest and greatest information about biorb and biube aquariums.

If anyone has any questions about biorb tanks or biorb rumors let us know and we’ll find out for you.

Here is a new product that we have used lately that has been great for our fish – They are fish antibiotics & medicines that help to cure bacterial infections in your fish.

Fish Mox

Fish Flex

Fish Mox Forte

Fish Flex Forte

If you are new to biorb tanks one of our favorite tanks is the biube pure aquarium.  We like it because it has a great look and design, you can see from all sides of it, including the top and bottom view, (not from underneath because of substrate) and for the price you get a lot with it.  The light alone costs over $115 if you buy it separate, and it comes with a filter, air pump, airstone, instructions, water chemicals.  You can see a picture of the biube pure below.

Biorb Intelligent Heater- Will It Live Up To The Hype?

May 12th, 2010

The Biorb Intelligent Heater has been whispered about for a couple years now and yet it has never hit the market.  I just noticed that Reef One is launching the new Intelligent Heater this month.  I haven’t seen one, it looks cool, but I have to wonder if it will live up to the hype.

The idea is great and I think a lot of people will love it, I just hope that it isn’t form over function because a good heater is critical to keeping fish healthy.  Once they are available we will be sure to put a review of them up on our website.
