Some of the other reviews are obviously written by people with no clue how to care for an aquarium! I and my family have had bio orbs for years and have no trouble at all. My daughter has one and her tropical fish are breeding and very healthy. Fish keeping requires some knowledge regardless of what aquarium is used.
One review actually states the pump being switched off at night! It must not be switched off at all unless doing a water change.
These bio orbs are brilliant and low maintenance.

The instructions clearly state that you shouldn't put anything over the filter. It also advises smaller fish such as minnows are more suited to this tank. I couldn't understand why my fish were disappearing - and then I realised they were being sucked up the filter. Eugh.

This tank is a fab buy a brill home for a couple of fancy goldfish no more than two though , if you know how to maintain it you will not have any problems just make sure you do your research on how to keep your fish healthy and happy and don't over stock this size tank is only suitable for 2 fish or 4 tiny fish my only criticism is , on the advert the picture shows this tank with a light it did not come with a light I felt this to be misleading the company not Amazon but the 3rd party seller said I could return at my own expense ! Not really customer friendly in today's economic climate I was hoping they may have said due to the fact I was somewhat mislead they may have sent me a light unit at a discount price wishful thinking on my part , however the light unit itself varies from £14 onwards but at £14 the seller adds around £5.00 extra for postage overs are £18 with no postage so just shop around I looked on every site and there is not much of variation in price on the light once you add postage and packing so in a nutshell buy with a light and make sure you double check don't rely on the picture I hope this is helpful peeps .

Biorb tanks are designed to appeal to people and not fish. They are poor places to keep goldfish especially. Goldfish require room to swim and lots of water to cope with their wastes. Biorbs don't deliver. They also offer a tiny surface area to the air so even with a bubbler in them will not be as well aeriated as a more conventional tank. For the money you will do much better with a long rectangular tank - and so will your fish.

As someone who tried to keep a goldfish in 30litres for all of 7 days before realising how terribly irresponsible most manufacturers of these novelty tanks are (and immediately upgrading to a 35 gallon tank) I'm adding my review to this in the desperate hope I can prevent others making the same mistake. As the previous reviewer said... goldies need 10g's each MINIMUM. You gotta trust us on this. Yep, I know it seems like a ridiculous size and expense for a goldfish, yep I know you won one from a fair once as a child and kept in "happily" for six months in a bowl, yep I know you just wanted a cheap, easy pet, I also know you've seen them on the telly kept in bowls. Sadly, none of this changes the fact that happy/healthy goldfish grow very large (even the 'little' ones grow at least 15cms long) and live for 10+ years and they do this by having gallons of water available to swim in. Anything less than 10 gallons condemns your pet to a life swimming around burning in it's own waste. Please don't do it.

I bought one of these bi-orbs "the same size" many years ago along with a n assortment of "black moors" & "sherbunkins" after nine years it was showing some signs of wear and tear, so I bought a replacement' and the first thing I noticed was the better clearance for the light illumination and the top of the tank, although the smaller pump was very noisy, so I changed it for the still working old one.
The one remaining black moor seems extremely happy in his new home,

this is a good tank for housing small fish, coldwater fish such as white cloud minnows, would do well in this tank, however, this should never ever be used to house goldfish. the water volume is far under what it needs to be for goldies, and the surface area is tiny so airation, even with a pump, will not allow a comfortable life for a goldfish who need very high oxygen levels. think to yourself aswell, how would a 6-10inch long goldfish swim in this? and thats only if its a fancy goldie, common goldfish can grow to 18 inches. the 'fish grow to their surroundings' is rubbish, their body may look fine from the outside, but as they age their internal organs continue to grow, its a slow and most likely painful death. give your fish a long and happy life in long rectangular tanks,they are much better to house goldfish in.

This biOrb is great for 3 or 4 little fish. The air pump on the otherhand is very noisy. We ended up replacing it for a much quiter one as we couldn't stand the noise. Order more media as you will need it.
