Fish Tank Aquariums

Fish tank aquariums have come a long way from those clumsy glass boxes with tubes and filters sticking out all over the place. Modern aquarium kits are a great way to have an aquarium tank without the usual hassle of cleaning and designing a tank.

Aquarium tanks are basically classified in 3 sizes. Small Tanks have a volume of less than 20 gallons, Medium Tanks has a volume between 20 and 50 gallons while Large Tanks have a capacity bigger than 50 gallons. Size is important because it determines the amount and size of fish you can keep in a single tank. Tanks are sometimes also classified by their shape or material (glass or acrylic).

Aquarium kits come packed as ready-to-use “plug and play” kits that has everything you need – no fish off course :) . The new fish tank aquariums are beautiful and its no longer purely functional. Its designer pieces that can be a great addition to any room. Along with very low maintenance, these aquarium kits is the perfect solution for anyone.

biOrb Life Aquarium

The biOrb life is definitely not your average aquarium tank. Just like the original biOrb, the new design has a unique shape and the clever design offer a very large and crystal clear visibility. I generally don’t like “furniture type” aquariums simply because they never really work that well. This is different. It not only looks good but it works just as good. All equipment is neatly designed into the body of the tank and it has the same 5 stage filtration as the biOrb. It available in 3 colors and 3 sizes (8,12 and 16 gallons) and the integrated slimline intelligent LED light is a truly unique and beautiful feature. This makes for a beautiful display while still providing a great tank for the more serious fish keeper.
