Biorb 60 litre Upgrade Kit


Upgrade kit for 60 litre Biorb
Kit to upgrade your biorb. This kit contains foams and biogravel media to convert the biorb into a super-efficient environment capable of supporting life and keeping tankmates happy - something the standard orb is woefully incapable of due to the tiny standard foam filter.
Full instructions and gel filter starter balls are included.
Once the media is mature it will reduce ammonia, nitrite and nitrate.
Check the video section on this site for the biorb video.
​Foam colour may vary.
This kit comes with 3.5kg Biogravel, coarse and medium density foams, fine pad and gel filter starter balls.

The gel filter starter balls should be added in with media - most people put them on top of foams then cover with biogravel. They will slowly dissolve and seed the media (biogravel) with beneficial bacteria.

The tank base should ideally be cleaned once a week to remove uneaten fish food and waste - if you use a gravel cleaner it will remove waste from base of tank and upper foam and it will also remove some water from the tank allowing for a partial water change. Even when a full cycle (0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, 0 nitrate) is achieved weekly maintenance is essential to keep the tank clean and healthy.
Use cleaning pads for acrylic (not glass) tanks when cleaning the inside of biorbs to avoid scratching.

I installed the Biorb upgrade kit just over a year ago into my Biorb 105 and have had no water quality problems since. With the standard media I would need to do one third water changes 2-3 times a month to keep the levels right. Since installing this media and letting everything get working I have had no fish deaths and no random tank cycling. All the nitrates, nitrites and other toxins stay at trace levels or very low if measurable. I now have a low maintenance Birob that takes a small water change and a filter rinse/clean once a month . Thanks FilterPro!

I was about to sell my 60 litre biorb. I was at my wits end. It took over 2 months to cycle correctly but left me with an algae problem that was impossible to eradicate. Water was never completely clean, and even after a full water change, it would be cloudy in a matter of days and I was practically starving my fish to keep the levels under control. In contrast my 15 litre biorb chugs along without problems using the standard media. Clearly indicating the variables and performance inconsistency of the biorb system. After installing the biogravel filter, the water is now crystal clear and the fish now active and their colours vibrant, which is not a bonus I expected. Really pleased, and this would be 5 stars, but for this price the templates should be better or the foam pre-cut.
