biOrb Classic 30 MCR 8-Gallon Black Aquarium

Your Price:
0 x 0
Gallons: 8
Shape: Globe
Tank Material: Acrylic

Product Description

biOrb 30 combines classic good looks with high tech filtration. 

Most aquariums use small box filters and/or smooth gravel which easily clogs with dirt. Like all biorbs, the biOrb 30 uses special ceramic media to provide biological filtration, which has a surface area equivalent to the size of a football pitch. Any excess waste is collected and held in a filter cartridge at the base of the biOrb. 

To maintain your biOrb 30 all you do is simply replace the filter cartridge every four weeks and change a third of the water.

Two light options exist for the biOrb 30, a standard LED light and an intelligent light which uses long life LEDs to automatically replicate a natural 24 hour light cycle. 

For safety and peace of mind, the lights and pump are low voltage and are backed by a 12 month guarantee. The aquarium itself is made from acrylic which is ten times stronger than glass. 

You can enjoy all the technology of an advanced aquarium set up, supplied in one box. The biOrb 30 is the perfect aquarium for anyone new to fish keeping.

The Multi-Coloured Remote-Controlled LED light

Now you can enjoy the magic of multi-coloured lighting in your biOrb at the touch of a button. Simply choose your favourite colour or scroll through the entire spectrum of light.

What's more, it is an automatic setting which simulates a natural light cycle for your fish. An inbuilt timer phases the light through a 24 hour period from daylight to moonlight and back again. Simply choose from the 8, 10 and 12 hour daylight settings and the MCR light will do the rest.

You can leave it running 24/7, so if you are late home or away on holiday your fish's routine is not disturbed.
