Anyone ever used a Biorb Life?


That baby right there. This tanke is awesome looking imo-- it's 8 gallons, and it's like... pretty much everything I love about the dinky terrible betta bowl designs. But without the terrible. I'd really really like to save up and get one.. but I've got a few reservations. Like how does it work-- and can I put a heater in it neatly, ect? I was wondering if anyone here has used the Biorb Life tanks. They're really quite expensive, but my birthday's coming up. And I really would like to get a nice new tank and perhaps one more fish. xD

Im not sure. i dont have it. but i have a 2 gallon thats the same exact shape. just on a smaller scale. they have a tropical heater kit. and its powered by an undergravel filter. to me it seems very over priced. its nice. but i dont think its that fancy. zoomed makes a betta condo, that comes in a rectangular shape. and it looks almost the same. all youd need to do was buy a small filter, and a small heater too.

hope this helps.

Is it made of acrylic? It has an under ground filter? I would find something stronger and easier to clean, the opening on top is not large at all

It's made of acrylic and apparently has an undergravel filter, yes. However I really like the size it comes in 8 gallons is a lovely amount of space. The zoo med ones are pretty tempting-- I just wish that the rectangle cam in 2 gallons too.

I suppose next time I go to petco I can get more info on the biorb life set. I'm not sure how easy to clean it would be, ect. Apparently from what i heard it's actually got some sort of built in hidden place for a heater too?

i have the Biube 9 gallon and i loved it. That one seems a little better as mine is round and sometimes when hes on the sides i cant really see him that well.

Undergravel filters are crap. You will have to tear up your whole tank just to clean them.
