biOrb Classic Aquariums

January 19th, 2009


Due to the unique shape of the biOrb, solid waste produced by the fish is drawn into the filter cartridge which is located at the base of the aquarium. When performing routine maintenance the cartridge is quickly and easily removed by twisting the bubble tube and lifting the cartridge out of the water, you don’t even need to get your hands wet. The cartridge, containing the waste and depleted chemicals, can then be simply replaced.

The filter cartridge provides additional benefits other than just the easy removal of fish waste. Our unique anti-backdrain cartridge means that when you remove the cartridge the waste is not released into the water. The filter cartridge also contains mechanical and chemical filtration along with natural water stabilisers. The cartridge has been developed to contain the ideal blend of resin particles to increase the water quality and help keep your fish healthy. Using our system means you won’t have to waste time or money on additional chemicals or additives, as everything required is already in the cartridge.

Our unique filtration system is air powered. Independent tests conducted by researchers from the University of the West of England proved the water is 100% oxygenated. The spherical and tubular shapes ensure a uniform distribution of oxygenated water throughout the aquarium. This high level of oxygen is not only great for the fish, as this is what they need, but also vital for the beneficial bacteria that colonise the ceramic media.

Our aquariums use a biological filtration, located at the bottom of the aquarium. Highly porous ceramic media is used in conjunction with the oxygenated water to provide the ideal environment for a highly effective biological filtration. This biological filtration removes the poisonous waste, such as ammonia and nitrite, which are produced by the fish. The ceramic media remains in the aquarium at all times so the biological filtration is never interrupted when the filter is changed.

Our system uses 5 stages of water optimisation to ensure that your fish remain healthy and keeps maintenance low.

The aquariums are constructed using the most effective material for high quality aquariums. Acrylic is 17x stronger than glass, so you are unlikely to smash it should it be accidentally knocked over. Acrylic is also clearer than glass allowing you to see the true natural colors of the fish. All our aquariums use 12v electricity ensuring that the aquarium is safe to use.

The unique filter cartridge system included in all Reef One aquariums ensures that maintenance is as simple as possible.

When performing routine maintenance the cartridge is quickly and easily removed by twisting the bubble tube and lifting the cartridge out of the water, you don’t even need to get your hands wet. The cartridge, containing the waste and depleted chemicals, can then be simply replaced, just like throwing out the trash.

The filter cartridge system means you don’t have to buy additives, chemicals and adjusters to keep the water quality high, everything required is already included in the filter cartridge. The chemicals included in the filter cartridge have been carefully developed to be the correct quantities for the biOrb range of aquariums


All our aquariums are constructed using acrylic. This ultra clear plastic looks similar to glass, but has properties that make it far superior. This enables our aquariums to be stronger, lighter, and have a superior finish compared to glass aquariums. Acrylic aquariums are up to 17 times stronger than glass aquariums, considerably decreasing the risk of the aquarium breaking.

The lights and pumps in all our aquariums use safe 12 voltage electricity to ensure that if anything should happen you will never be in danger. Safety is paramount when water and electricity are involved. All our aquariums use low voltage lights and air pumps to ensure complete safety for you and your family.

The Biorb aquariums are not only safe for you but also completely safe for your fish. All our products have been thoroughly tested for safety so you can be assured that your fish will be safe when using Reef One products.
