biOrb Aquarium Decorated with Plants.

Reef-One, the manufacturers of biOrb and biUbe aquariums have created a fantastic range of plants for use in their tanks which offer complete ease and simplicity for all owners, from beginners to advanced.

Decorating your aquarium with plants should rely on your particular taste. No-one can tell you exactly how to decorate it and which plants to choose, but knowing a little more about them will help your decision making.

biOrb Easy Plant Packs

All of the biOrb Easy Plant Packs have been designed so that you don't need to bury them in the gravel like old fashioned style aquarium plants. This makes it easy to add them to the aquarium, move around should you want a change and remove for routine maintenance needs.

At the bottom of these Easy Plants is a weighted ball, this ball will stop the plants from floating and keep them where you choose to put them.

In the biOrb Easy Plants range you have the standard green plant packs which are available in small, medium and large and each pack has two plants which are different varieties. These were the plants that biOrb introduced for their original aquariums - the Baby biOrb, biOrb 30 and biOrb 60.

Another range is the coloured plant packs which are available in bluered and autumn colours, these are great for adding colour variety into the aquarium or to make it look more like a seawater tank as they go well with some of the new sea water plants.

biOrb Silk Aquarium Plants

The silk range of biOrb plants came out a little later than the standard Easy Plants but work in the same way, having the weighted ball at the base for the same simple installation.

The plus point about the silk plants is that they look more realistic, flowing in the water naturally as it moves creating an almost life-like look. There are four packs you can choose from, small, medium green, medium red and green or large and they also come in a pack of two.

biOrb Colour Balls and Topiary Moss Balls

biOrb Colour Balls are like moss balls, just different colours. Available in red, orange or purple they will just sink to the bottom of the aquarium wherever you choose, there is also the colour ball pack of three which contains 3 smaller colour balls and these compliment the larger size nicely.

Topiary Moss Balls come as a pack of three, one large moss ball and two smaller sized moss balls, you can even use the large one over your bubble tube in the middle of the tank.

biOrb Blue Sea Lily Decoration.Sea Plants for biOrbs

Inspired by plants you'd find naturally in the oceans of the far east biOrb have now begun offering customers plenty of choice when it comes to these plants.

The first of them is the Sea Lily range which come in crimson, white or blue. They're a similar idea to the colour balls but much more vibrant and realistic. 

The Sea Fan range of plants are available in crimson or white and have the same weighted ball as the Easy Plant Packs so it's easy to add them. There's also pink and purple kelp plants, perfect to recreate an ocean style aquarium in your biOrb.

biOrb Grass Rings

Although technically an ornament rather than a plant because they are designed to go over the bubble tube in the middle of your biOrb aquarium, the Grass Rings are a great way to add more plant interest into your tank. These grass rings can also be spread out to look like they have more volume too.

You can view the full range on our biOrb Aquarium Plants page.
