What Are Ceramic Media Gravels?
I am not into rearing fishes, but when I found out that I could actually own an aquarium without having the need to add fishes, I was all for it. Nonetheless. if you enjoy having sea creatures in your tank, you will be delighted to know that the Ceramic Media inside the biOrb aquarium filtration system help keep the water clear and healthy for the fishes inside. And yes, these Ceramic Media come with the biOrb aquarium.

Setting up the aquarium is pretty easy. Fitted with a foam element for mechanical filtration, you will need to first insert the filter cartridge into the air column then fasten into the housing after cleaning the tank.

Before putting the Ceramic Media or Ceramic Substrate into the tank, wash them thoroughly to remove any dirt. Dispose any gravels smaller than a pea size, then place the rest gently into the tank so they do not scratch the acrylic surface.

how biorb aquarium filtration cycle works

Whether you choose to have the biOrb Aquarium with its 5-step filtration system ( Biological, Mechanical, Chemical, Water Stabilization and Oxygenation ), or their Terrarium with intelligent ecosystem, these tanks will add character to any room. Enjoy the therapeutic effects of your new hobby as it is so easy to set up. BiOrb smarter design also makes fish keeping easy if you are an aquarist as you will only need to change the biOrb filter along with water ( just change a third of the water ) every four to six weeks depending on the number of fishes you have in the tank and of course, much longer if you have no fishes.

I love the OASE biOrb Tube standing tall in my living room now, offering an unobstructed 360° all round view of my colourful aquatic world. Thanks to its unique cylinder shape, the aquatic plants are magnified and the aquarium appears bigger visually as compared to conventional fish tank! I am having fun playing with the colours by scrolling through the entire spectrum of light.
