If it is the first time you get to start with the keeping fish hobby, then the best aquarium starter kits are a good way to go. You can easily archive the success with the starter kits since they come handy with everything you need to jumpstart your fish keeping hobby and beginner-friendly manner.
Although these two starter kits have a similar size and equipment we still highly appreciate the Coralife LED Biocube Aquarium. Because it seems to be more durable and it’s an outstanding point of LED lighting effect and timer capabilities.
#1 The tank size and design
As the name suggested, you can easily realize the tank size of these two aquaria Coralife is 32 Gallons tank and biOrb Cube is 30 gallons tank. This is the ideal tank side for the beginner since they are not too small then you can easily maintain the stable water parameter. And they are also too large that do not need lots of space.
Coralife LED Biocube has a sleek modern hood with vibrant LED lighting, rounded edge designed and hinge-top canopy design. This is the best LED aquarium lighting that comes with the starter kits.
Biorb Cube is made from acrylic material, which is 10 times stronger than glass, 50% lighter and has a 93% transparency rating. This is a traditional rectangular glass aquarium paired with a low profile hood. Provide 360 degrees view that is an unobstructed view of your aquarium inhabitants. It is also easy to set up and easy feeding access since it includes the feed hole conveniently located at the top of the Aquarium.
#2 What is in the kits?
If the tank kits are lacking some essential equipment, you will have to purchase them separately to ensure a healthy environment for your fish.
Coralife tank kit only includes tanks, lights with controls, and filters. You will need to buy a heater, air pump, decoration, and substrate, etc.
This is also happening with biOrb Cube since it only comes with tank, light, and filters a net and a few samples of food and water conditioner. You will want to add a heater, plants, substrate, and a testing kit.
biOrb Cube kit offer 5 stage filtration are: biological, mechanical, chemical, water stabilization and oxygenation. It also requires less effort of maintenance since all you need to do is replace the filter cartridge every four weeks and change a third of the water. Filter cartridge replacements are easy to find. But there are some users who complain that this filter is not doing a great job of cleaning the tank.
Coralife LED tank kit includes the compact and customizable built-in filtration that easy to set up and maintain. The glass back panel for easy refugium set-up.
