Reef One Cleaning
BiOrb Service Kit
The filter cartridge in your biOrb should be changed every 4-8 weeks. A new cartridge is supplied in the Service Kit as well as a special cleaning pad for removing dirt and algae from the inside surface of the biOrb and water preparation chemicals for carrying out a partial water change.The kit also contains easy to follow step by step instructions. Most aquariums have filters with several compartments containing different types of filter media which needs to be carefully cut, measured and changed. Changing too much or too little can result in water quality problems. In the Service Kit this has all been done for you, so you just have to replace the filter cartridge and don’t need to worry.
BiOrb Service Kit Anti Algae
To get green water problems under control this cartridge can be used in place of the normal filter cartridge TEMPORARILY. Along with the sachets of treatment supplied it will remove the algae which causes green water. Follow the simple step by step instructions supplied to remove the algae and clear your biOrb water.This is a treatment cartridge, it does not prevent green water. The best way to prevent green water is to minimise feeding and carry out regular maintenance.
BiOrb First Aid Kit
The First Aid Kit treats a range of common fish diseases so it's useful if you are not sure what your fish is suffering from. To treat fish for illness usually involves working out dilution rates, carefully measuring out liquids and removing any chemical parts your filtration system. With this Kit you can simply replace the existing filter cartridge for the First Aid Cartridge and add the treatment sachets on the days instructed. This is a treatment cartridge, it is not meant to be used long term, it will not work as a filter and will not prevent your fish from becoming ill. Only ever use treatments if your fish are ill.
BiOrb Magnetic Algea Cleaner
This cleaner is in two parts, one goes inside the biOrb and the other outside, they hold themselves together with a magnet so as you move the outside part, the inside part follows. Soft blades clean algae off the inside surface as it moves along. Designed especially to work on the curved surface of your biOrb.
BiOrb Air Stone
The air stone fits in the base of the biOrb underneath the filter cartridge. It breaks up the flow of air into the aquarium, splitting it into a mass of fine bubble. Over time the tiny pores in the air stone can become blocked by dirt and lime scale preventing air from getting through properly. Depending on your local water supply and the conditions in your biOrb an air stone can last anywhere from 3 months to 3 years.
BiOrb Cleaning Pads
biOrb Cleaning Pads have been made from a material which won't scratch the acrylic. They have a soft side for gentle cleaning and a rough side for tougher algae deposits.
BiOrb Cleaning Pump
The cleaner pump works like a siphon but has a squeezy hand pump to get the water flowing and is really easy to use. Simply hold one end of the cleaner pump in the biOrb and direct it towards the base. The other end has a blue hand pump which you hold over a bucket. Squeeze the hand pump quickly a few times and water will start to flow out of the biOrb into the bucket. Move the nozzle around the ceramic media to take out waste and debris with the water.
