The biUbe is a brand new addition to the road of small aquarium kits from Reef One. It is an exquisite 9-gallon tank, and it definitely stands out from different nano tanks available on the market.
Reef One claims that its new biUbe has a definite type, whereas not compromising water high quality or residing situations for the fish and invertebrates within the tank.
I arrange the biUbe within the hallowed place on the peninsula within the kitchen that my spouse, Saint Janet, permits for small tanks that I’m testing for this column. I made a decision to check the biUbe by setting it up as a marine tank, so I used water and reside rock from two of the massive marine techniques I’ve in my fish room. For livestock, I added three aquacultured clownfish–two ocellaris and one tomato–and a few hermit crabs and snails. I ran the biUbe for 3 months, feeding the residents solely dry meals. During the take a look at interval, I did two 25-percent water modifications and handled the tank for some purple slime algae when it reared its ugly head.
The biUbe was a powerful success–a lot in order that my spouse really wished me to go away the biUbe within the sacred place on the peninsula after the take a look at interval. The fish and invertebrates thrived within the biUbe from day one. The gentle was adequate to slowly develop some purple coralline algae, and the blue moonlight was good to have on within the kitchen coming dwelling late at night time. The round form of the biUbe is exclusive, and one way or the other the fish appear to essentially prefer it, circling round with out having to make 90-degree turns.
The Reef One biUbe is a wonderful product, and I strongly advocate that hobbyists use it. It can be nice if the sunshine have been a bit brighter and if the feeding gap within the cowl can be a bit of bigger. But the tank’s dimension (9 gallons) makes a greater setting than smaller nano tanks, and the spherical form is each engaging as an merchandise of decor and is seemingly good for the fish. The biUbe would make a superb aquarium for the kitchen, a desk or a toddler’s room.
