Is biorb really worth getting

I like the globe shape but 28 gall 385$ on an air filter system feels wrong.

Globe shaped orbs are hard to oxygenate because the surface water to air % is so small. Also theyre harder to clean.

Biorb is an overpriced fishbowl IMO. For that kind of money you could easily piece together a much nicer setup in a standard glass tank. Or, if you like the all-in-one aspect of the Biorb, you could get something like a Biocube that is a much better product (and cheaper).
