Biorb - how many gallons?

PWC and vacuum today. Rearranged some plants to make it all interesting for Red again. Click image for larger version

He is cohabitating with an ADF very well. Keep him active and he monitors all the froggy movements. Replaced the halogen light with LED and put in the Biorb high tech heater to prepare for colder weather on its way.

That looks beautiful! I thought of Red and his Biorb yesterday when I saw one on CL which was only a 4G or I would have been tempted.

I kinda want the 4g but I'm not sure if it's big enough for a betta...but Shrimp!

The tanks are usually reasonable on CL but the upgrades $$$

Media upgrade $50
LED light $50
Biorb heater $110-this thing is tougher and smarter than me. Polycarbonate!

The snail sales paid for most of it or my hubbie might have pitched a fit. Lol

Wow, was that amazing amount for a heater!?! I never had looked into the cost of the accessories. Now I will make sure if I get one it has all the "extras", or at least a heater.

Lol, the crazy things we do for our hobby.

Shrimp tank for a 4G! I really like the modular style Biorbs too. Will stay on the look out for one.

I had a glass heater in there for a while. But the more I read about the Biorb heater, I was impressed with the technology. 12volts in the water.

I might be picking up a Biube this week. Watch as the money goes *poof* lol.
