THE 8 Gallon BIORB LIFE AQUARIUM REVIEW:
Biorb Life 30 Review – Summary
In our opinion the Biorb Life 30 is an excellent aquarium. It has all of the features and benefits of the classic biorb aquariums, but with its new design it eliminates some of the biggest problems classic biorb aquariums created. The Biorb Life 30 is definitely pricier than classic biorb fish tanks, but it also includes the Biorb intelligent LED light ($105 on its own). If you have some money to spend and are looking for an easy to maintain, stylish fish tank, the biorb life should be top on your list. Since the Biorb Life 30 is square, not a sphere, you no longer face the problem of your fish being distorted through the curved acrylic when you look at them, which happens with classic biorb fish tanks. Also, since it is a square fish tank it allows for more surface area, which means more oxygen for your fish, which is always good. Out of the aquarium kits we have seen, this one rates at the top
The biOrb life 30 aquarium holds 30L (8 Gallons) of water. The biorb life offers a good environment for the fish with the multi-stage filtration that keeps the water clean and clear and the easy to change filter cartridges which makes maintenance a breeze. Set apart from anything else on the market, the biorb life designer aquariums feature a crystal clear acrylic front and back and are finished with seamless gloss colored acrylic wrap. Available in three striking colors; chilli red, ice white or piano black, the handmade range are a unique must have item for 2009
