"Excellent buy!"

It is awesome for a very small amount of water. It started to malfunction immediately upon being plugged in. At least 30%, more if testing indicates a problem or if water is looking bad. I bought an additional 2 Lb Bag Ceramic Media, and that does the trick. My tanks cycled quickly, and I've had no problems with ammonia. You can't even see the pushed in spots. I used a binder clip to clamp the tube down and decrease the air entering the tank.

Landen Final Thoughts

"It's gorgeous."

Also very important for filtration. I put it opposite the return pump and it creates awesome flow. I spoke to a gentleman in customer service named Julio this afternoon. I really like the ceramic media as it provides a great home for the'good' bacteria. My only comment is that Amazon should label their box fragile. Final gripe and its not a big deal is that there isn't a lid over the feeding hole. I purchased one of the biOtube plant sets also.

"I really love it."

I will most definitely be sticking with Landen for future aquarium purchases. I will usually slow it down more at night so he can sleep undisturbed. I do 1 drop per two gallons 3x a week for first few months. This arrived a little over 24 hours ago and I will update as a resolution comes. The pictures are from day 4, note the crystal clear water. I purchased one of the biOtube plant sets also. It sits inside of styrofoam and is double boxed and wrapped once with bubble wrap.

"Hope this review helps!"

I've built a fresh nano planted tank using this. I put it opposite the return pump and it creates awesome flow. I have been an active fish keeper for years. Maybe a larger BiOrb for the future when I want more fish again. And my Midas Blenny and Cleaner shrimp are doing so well in it. It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny! The multi colored LED lights cost more than the tank itself too.

"Thanks KollerCraft!"

After the foam is in I put the gravel in. That will make it easier to maintain the water temp and find a heater. Please note that the tank is 100% clear. It really makes it easy to keep the outside surface clean and shiny! Most important though is the lighting issue. Live rock is where much of the filtering goes on,. By using live rock and sand, you'll be able to cycle this tank within 3-4 weeks.

  • Aquatic Arts 10 Live Freshwater Pom Pom Crabs | Real Living Nano Aquarium Fish Tank Pet | Betta/Danio / Rasbora / Guppy Compatible
  • The rare Freshwater Pom Pom Crab is named for its unique pom-pom-like claws. Their shells appear to glow with yellow or tan colors, black or brown designs, and a texture like smooth polish.
  • Unlike hermit crabs, these are fully aquatic and must live in an aquarium or vivarium. An internal or external pump, a heater, and a filter are needed (a canister and bio sponge filter is ideal).
  • The bulk of their diet in nature and in aquariums is algae, but it can be supplemented with extra assorted foods such as dry flakes or pellet foods, algae wafers and treats, calcium treatment, etc.
  • These crabs seek hiding places to feel safe, such as an aquatic plant, decoration, or some sort of enclosure with an opening, like a cave or pipe. They go great with Spongebob Crusty Crab décor!
  • Each Aquatic Arts brand plants and animals kit comes with a 100% live arrival guarantee, offer of replacement or return of DOAs, plus free email support!

Aquatic Arts 10 Live Final Thoughts

"Really beautiful tank."

I plan on plenty invertebrates and softies only so I may never need to upgrade. I didn't notice the dust on the glass until I reviewed the zoomed in pictures. Indeed the light did not illuminate at all but only flashed as seen in the video. Overall I'm pleased with the purchase. Just like the aquariums I saw in the aquascaping videos I watched on YouTube. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. Clean silicone lines and clear glass.

"The Fluval 13."

I bought 2 more 1lb bags of ceramic material and I only needed one more. Still waiting for the silicone to cure. Also very important for filtration. I am especially fond of the raised base. Seriously, it doesn't even cover the filter, and it looks pretty bad. I didn't even add the skimmer, and it has be perfect. I immediately noticed that the glass moves slightly in the corners when pressed on.

"Attached some photos."

It sits inside of styrofoam and is double boxed and wrapped once with bubble wrap. Use seachem prime and stability with every water change and as needed by directions. The BioOrb does an amazing job keeping the tank clean and fresh. DO NOT USE SAND OR ANY OTHER SUBSTRATE OTHER THAN WHAT THEY GIVE YOU. It is awesome for a very small amount of water. I added some privacy film to help hide the cords and the hang-on-back filter. It is bit expensive, but I don't think I will ever need to buy another tank again.

"Don't overfeed!"

I rely very heavily on Amazon reviews for my online shopping, so here is mine. That is a stand up person and one I will do business with again. I put it opposite the return pump and it creates awesome flow. So far 2 fish and 1 water frog died this way in my aquarium within 6 months. Definetly get a small ato as it does allow considerable evap. Medium on the bottom, coarse on top. I do enjoy how modern it looks with no rims.

Beautiful tank, had a local glass co. It is bit expensive, but I don't think I will ever need to buy another tank again. This is my new favorite brand of aquariums. I have this aquarium for now a couple of weeks. Should survive the shipping process just fine! Overall I'm pleased with the purchase.

If you are looking for a good quality aquarium with a great look this is it! Both my fish are doing well with this setup. My biggest gripes about it are the lack of room in the back.

"Easy to assemble."

If you upgrade your filter situation this BiOrb is really neat. Most important though is the lighting issue. I bought an additional 2 Lb Bag Ceramic Media, and that does the trick. Most important though is the lighting issue. I also add seachem pristine per direction once a week for first few months. Beveled edges all around and the silicon work is really nice.

"Yes, it was expensive."

Indeed the light did not illuminate at all but only flashed as seen in the video. The stock pump is high quality but opted to use it in the tank to circulate water. I didn't want to cover the filter because it would make cleaning harder. Looks very similar to more expensive tanks for much less. The longest delay was my downloading invoice. Live rock is where much of the filtering goes on,. I picked this, because it was simple and had everything I needed.

"5 years in to ownership."

I didn't even add the skimmer, and it has be perfect. The multi colored LED lights cost more than the tank itself too. Mine's sitting on the carpet, and it's completely silent that way. I've got two of these tanks, one at home and one at work. I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense. My other gripe would be with the lid. To me I think it is worth it to have such a good tank.

"It's just beautiful!"

The Evo has the same capacity but seems like a much bigger tank than the Portrait. 1 gallon puts my other 7 tanks to shame. I added a small circulation pump to get better water movement. I don't have plants in mine in the usual sense. It comes with everything you'd want besides a heater and protein skimmer. All in all it is packaged very well. I started the cycling process and it's holding water so far!
