BiOrb aquariums include everything you need to start your new hobby. With your plug and play BiOrb you’ll soon be decorating your tank and enjoying the magic of keeping fish. With a range of stunning designs, you’ll find an aquarium to fit every home. MCR Lighting, pump, and filtration are simple to set up and easy to look after.

The biOrb LIFE 60 is supplied as a coldwater aquarium suitable for small temperate fish. Tropical fish can be kept with the addition of a biOrb Heater Pack or Intelligent Heater. Like all biorbs, the biOrb LIFE 60 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.

Key Features:

Unique Biorb Filter
All biOrbs have a filter at the bottom of the aquarium, which is where solid waste naturally settles. The air driven filtration system creates a constantly changing water surface, this maintains oxygen saturation. The circular flow of water then collects the fish waste on its way down and draws the waste through the ceramic media substrate where the natural biological filtration takes place. Any remaining waste is trapped in the sponge cartridges which need replacing at regular intervals. The water then passes through resin particles and natural stabilisers to remove toxic substances and keep the pH levels constant. 

Modern Acrylic Design
For your peace of mind, the light and pump are low voltage and both are backed by a 12 month guarantee. The aquarium itself is made from acrylic which is ten times stronger than glass. These attractive aquariums make an excellent addition to a desktop or side in the home, they are suitable for a small number of (approximately 10) small fish and/or shrimps.

The Multi-Coloured Remote (MCR) 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.
