You are purchasing a pack of 5 high quality Compatible Air Stones suitable for use with all biorb and biube aquariums. Simply take apart your current biOrb filter unit and empty the contents whilst retaining the plastic container.
Available in multiple pack sizes, these compatible biOrb air stones are designed to fit with all biOrb aquarium filtration systems. One of the key advantages of the filtration system in all our aquariums is the highly effective air powered system which provides 100% oxygenation.
You should leave the biOrb running for at least 24 hours before adding your first fish as this allows the water to stabilize. The biological filtration remains inside the aquarium at all times ensuring the beneficial bacteria are not killed during maintenance. Even when a full cycle (0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, 0 nitrate) is achieved weekly maintenance is essential to keep the tank clean and healthy. A new aquarium has no bacteria to cope with the biological load produced by fish and food so the ammonia level rises very quickly and toxic levels build up.It is essential to replace your air stones regularly, such as when showing signs of discolouration or a reduction in bubble rate. They’re cheap and changing them regularly will help to prolong the life of the air pump and improve filter performance.
The water stabilizers work by gradually breaking down if a pH of 8 is exceeded, this gradual process reduces the chance of a pH swing which is likely to be harmful to fish. The biOrb EARTH needs to be controlled via an App on an iOS / Android device, either a tablet or mobile phone.The 5 stages of water optimization consist of biological, mechanical, chemical, water stabilization, and oxygenation. The lint free cleaner pad has rough and smooth sides to remove any little algae spots, bits of dirt, etc. You can dilute the ammonia with 1/3 water changes if it does get high, if you are unsure of what level it is at or if you have added more than one fish. All-in-one biOrb Service Kit contains everything you need to complete the 4–6-week routine maintenance on your biOrb. This replacement foam fits easily into all biOrb aquariums and includes an aquarium cleaning pad and water treatment for truly hassle free aquarium servicing.
