Upgrade kit for Flow / Life biorb tanks of 15 / 30 / 60 litres
Kit to upgrade your biorb FLOW / LIFE / CUBE 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.

As the Flow / Life / Cube versions of the biorb have a large base area it takes 3.5kg of biogravel to properly cover the foams and you have 2 choices of how to set the tank up - see pictures on this listing of both methods. 
METHOD 1 - Cut the foams to the full size of the base and have the bottom one with bumpy side pointing down, top foam with bumpy side pointing up. Cover with biogravel. *This method is only suitable for LIFE / FLOW as CUBE base is larger. For CUBE use method 2.
METHOD 2 - Leave the foams together as a 'block' and cut them about 1/2" (roughly 10mm) smaller than the base size (or 1" smaller in CUBE tank). Cover with biogravel and since the foams are smaller than the base area the biogravel will go down outside edges of foams to hide them.

Black coarse foams, media and gel filter starter balls are included.
Once the media is mature it will naturally reduce ammonia, nitrite and nitrate.
Check the video section on this site for the biorb video.
​Foam colour may vary.

This kit comes with 2 x black deep profile cut foams (for outer foams), fine pad (for central filter), 3.5kg of biogravel porous media (for substrate) and gel filter balls to ensure that the media is set up very quickly with bacteria.

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.
