The filter cartridge in your biOrb should be changed every 4-8 weeks. A new cartridge is supplied in the Service Kit as well as a special cleaning pad for removing dirt and algae from the inside surface of the biOrb and water preparation chemicals for carrying out a partial water change.The kit also contains easy to follow step by step instructions. Most aquariums have filters with several compartments containing different types of filter media which needs to be carefully cut, measured and changed. Changing too much or too little can result in water quality problems. In the Service Kit this has all been done for you, so you just have to replace the filter cartridge and don’t need to worry.

In pack is obviously the filter cartridge, cleaning wipe and a sachet of water conditioner and bio booster. There are wide ranging opinions on how often you need to change the filter and biOrb from memory say every 4-6 weeks which many dispute, personally I'm on the fence. I think it ultimately comes down to the type of fish you stock and most importantly how many. Though in my honest opinion I'm not convinced the biOrb filtration is as good as it should be and so I perform water changes weekly (15-25%) and change the filter every 6-8 weeks. I keep about a third of the old sponge though for bacteria purposes. This rotation seems to keep the fish happy and my ammonia levels etc. just about in check.
I keep the conditioner and bio boosters for emergencies but don't use them, I stick with the Fluval products which I feel a little more reassured in using. I also haven't used the cleaning wipes as my biOrb does seem to be keeping quite clean as I do keep on top of it as much as possible and I am hesitant to start scrubbing the acrylic because it is notorious for scratching.
Overall no complaints, wether you consider it an expensive ongoing cost is debatable I probably don't begrudge £6-£7 every 6-8 weeks and you can buy multi packs which are a little more cost effective.
This contains a straight-swap kit with a complete plastic base, plastic grid for the filter media, and sponge. There is also an algae wipe, and a set of water-conditioner/bio-additive too. I tend not to use the algae wipe, as the snails in my tank do a good job of keeping on top of that. Likewise, I've now settled into using other branded products for conditioning my water, so I don't use the sachets either. Still, nice to have, but I worry that this is just bumping up the cost.
And that's my only real issue with this. Bear in mind you're replacing this every three to four weeks or so. That adds up over a year or two. This is why I tend to use this together with the compatible sets, using this when the soft plastic from the filter starts to get a bit tired looking and doesn't respond to cleaning as well as it did.
I suppose I shouldn't complain - if I wanted cheap, I wouldn't have bought a biOrb!
Thanks for reading.
Perfect and happy fishes too <'=<<
The service kit includes a double-side cleaning pad, dual water cleaner sachet, and filter. I have had several tanks and filters, and this is certainly the best in terms of a quick clean as the filter can be removed and discarded and new one clicked in to place.
Every so often our local pet shop wont have any so it's becoming easier to buy these online always making sure that we re-order when we use them.
