Hi guys just wanted to share my 2 biorb air 60’s.

first one has been set up since March 2020. I have 3 dart frogs in this one that have been in there soon after setting up and are doing very well. The orb is bio-active and has plenty of springtails, Isopods and worms (in the substrate)

The second one was gifted to me by George Farmer this one has been rescaped from how he had. Here’s a pic of how he had it set up

I kept it like this for a few weeks and rescaped it later on. There is currently nothing living in this one but I am considering adding some more dart frogs, just not sure on what ones as of yet.
This one now currently looks like this (I have kept most of the original plants but added to it)

So funny - just as I was reading this post, I wondered whatever happened with George’s (last I recall, he’d been conjecturing over the frog addition ... too small or just fine ...)

he did add 2 very small darts they were tiny tho I believe he rehomed them as they was hard to feed being so small....I opted for bigger ones in my initial setup and have not had any issues, proper little pigs

Very nice
Can you tell us how you set it up and what the substrate is

the biorb comes with supplied coco fibre block which you soak in water, I added peat Moss and sphagnum Moss and mixed it all in. The drainage mister and everything else is supplied when purchased. Simply put in hardscape and plants you’d like 👍🏼

Stunning Biorbs :) always fancied giving one of these a try, just not sure where I would put it lol
I’m sure you can find room 🤣 Oase are releasing a 30 litre one soon so smaller foot print. I would defo recommend them maintenance is minimal and i think they can look great
