You have or are thinking of getting a Biorb Fish Tank right? Well, Reef One has a product called the “Biorb Maintenance Timer.” It is made to remind you when to feed your fish, clean the tank, and change your filter. In theory, its a great idea, but… in reality, its not so great (we think).
The Biorb Timer costs about $35-40, depending on where you find it, and in our opinion, its at least $20 too much. It has a red light that illuminates when its time to feed your fish, change your filter, and clean your tank, and that’s it. There’s no sound or alarm, there’s no way to program it or change the time settings.
If you have trouble remembering how long ago you put your biorb service kit filter in your tank, why not put a reminder in your cell phone, or on your calendar, or a sticky note next to your stock of biorb accessories. Just think of it, you could be using a $40 sticky note, or you could spend the money on some more service kits, or other biorb decorations. Either way, unless you really really want it, your money is better spent elsewhere.
We don’t recommend the Biorb Timer, it is a basic biorb accessory that lights up after certain time periods, but doesn’t make any noise, and is pretty expensive. You would be better off to spend the money on some service kits, or on a cool biorb sculpture decoration.
