The filtration system of Biorb Classic

The filtration of Biorb Classic products is operated by an aquarium box filter that will provide a unique five-filtering stage to improve and maintain water quality and clarity. The box filter relies on a special aquarium air pump (accompanied with the product) to move water through the sponge media included within its chamber and thus performs the filtration.

(1) Clean and oxygen-rich water flow is produced by the air driven filtration system that constantly changes the water surface. The freshly oxygenated water provides an ideal environment for fish healthy as well as feeds the helpful bacteria in (3) and (4) stages.

(2) Any fish waste is pushed down by the circular flow of water and then will be detoxicated and trapped by (3) and (4) stages.

(3) Ceramide media and gravel (buy separately) are located at the base of the aquarium that creates a massive home for the beneficial filter bacteria to thrive and provide a considerable biological filtration. These beneficial bacteria will remove toxins, which are produced by organic waste such as ammonia, nitrites and protect your fish and shrimps.

(4) The sponge cartridge is included within the box filter traps the solid wastes. The water then passes through resin particles to remove toxic substances and keep the pH levels constant.

(5) The clean water is then returned and oxygenated by the bubble tube to repeat the cycle.

The filter is designed for easy maintenance and the cartridge is very easy to clean or change a new one. Regular cleaning and sometimes changing the filter cartridge will increase the efficiency of the filtration system.
