Reef One have just released a Marine Conversion kit for all biOrb 30 60 and biUbe aquariums. This specifically developed kit allows you to change your tropical biOrbbiUbe into a complete fish only marine aquarium.
Traditionally marine aquariums have required a complicated array of equipment from Power Headers to Protein Skimmers not to mention the bewildering assortment of chemical additives and adjusters. The Marine Conversion Kit contains everything you need to successfully set up a marine aquarium. It uses latest technology and techniques to remove the usual guesswork and uncertainty and enables you to focus on the aquariums inhabitants rather than the equipment. Unlike many marine systems which use only purified RO water this kit has been designed to be adaptive giving you all the tools needed but allowing you to make the choice of either RO water useful if your tap water is of poor quality or regular tap water.

The biorb gets a lot of bad press, people hate it due to it's shape and lack of surface area, and for those reasons I was sceptical about trying a marine set up in one, but I believe most of the reputation is down to bad set up and maintenance rather than the tank itself.
Other reviews complain of the cost of the tank, which initially can be expensive, but there are plenty of used ones available, and of course the service kits, which I think are relatively good value, i've yet to find another exotic pet which costs less than £10 a month to feed and maintain.
Many of the stockists I visited told me the tank was inadequate for the marine conversion, and it wouldn't work successfully, but despite this I decided to give it a go, which gives me even more satisfaction.
I own the 60L version, and have all the toys for it, LED light, Iheat etc and love the look of it on my sideboard.
I bought the conversion kit, followed the supplied instructions, and have not had any problems whatsoever despite having no previous marine fishkeeping experience, it was very easy to set up, and has run for 6 months flawlessly.
I put in 3 bags of the media for the biofilter to make sure there is plenty of area for it to multiply, as this is probably the most important part of the filtration.Read more ›
As for the fish stocking suggestions I would be vary cautious. Whenever I mentioned 2 percula clownfish, fish experts (both on forums and in shops) would be horrified at keeping them in my 30 litre tank (as suggested by the leaflet). I have been advised that goby fish (clown, yellow, panda varieties) would be fine. My clean up crew is building up nicely, having added one per week from week 2. I have the choice of cleaner shrimps, hermit crabs and turbo snails. So far I have a cleaner shrimp who is amazingly large but extremely happy pottering about the tank hoovering up all sorts of debris. Just don't be shocked when you think they have multiplied- their skin comes off whole and sits there looking like another cleaner shrimp! My recently purchased hermit crab has hoovered up all the fluffy growth on my live rock and is keeping the tank looking great. For a 30 litre tank they suggest 1 cleaner shrimp, 2/3 hermit crabs and 2 turbo snails.
Cleaning is a bit on the tricky size due to the shape but, after purchasing the special cleaning cloths which don't scratch the biorb, it is much easier. A monthly filter change is needed and 25% of the water needs to be removed and new water put in.Read more ›
I have now spent about 5 months trying to get this tank to work for marine fish and put simply - it doesn't.
The water parameters are fine, the water changes are done as recommended, the filter is changed (again) as recommended but the fish do not survive.
I have discussed this with my Aquatics shop and we are now both of the opinion that it is too difficult to keep the base of the tank in pristine condition to support the fish.
I am saddened by this because, not only was this an expensive purchase, I have lost fish and I don't like any animal to suffer.
To preserve the fish stock I currently have, I am taking delivery of another tank later this week and hope to transfer my fish fairly quickly.
This works well!
have 2 clowns, a blood shrimp, 3 snails and a serpentine starfish...
all doing very well...
