Welcome to the “Look Who’s 3!” Birthday Bash
The Next Generation in Animal Habitats
The Bio Bubble is the World’s Most Versatile Animal Habitat. The versatility and the functionality of the Biobubble makes it one of the most unique, state of the art animal habitats available on the market today. The Biobubble can transform into an aquarium, terrarium or small pet habitat, customized to meet the needs of any small pet owner. Additionally it can be used for countless educational projects at home or in the classroom.
Ethan has adored Joshua’s fish bowl for quite some time. I have been hesitant to purchase one for the main section of our house because of our two big meanies… meet Mocha and Jasper.
I’m not sure who the culprit is because they both sat for hours watching Josh’s Beta swim around in the bowl. Why do I call them “big meanies”? Well… one of these guys pushed the fish bowl onto the floor and made a huge mess, and almost ended the poor fishies life.
When Biobubble asked me to review a unit, I immediately was thinking “small animal” aka hamster, turtle etc. and was unsure if I wanted to venture down that road again. We have done the hamster thing in our house and they were neglected by the children (so they became Mommy’s pets).
After viewing their website I was excited at the aspect of having a fish tank that would be safe in the main section of the house. It holds approximately 3 gallons of water, making it fairly heavy, and it is capped off so the cats (even if they decided to lay on it) couldn’t get in.
The Biobubble arrived quickly and ready for a land animal or fish.
We decided to go the fish route.
I was extremely curious how I was expected to fill the Biobubble without making a mess. I quickly found that there is a surprise in the base… it expands!
The set up began… it was a fairly quick process really and the instructions were detailed and easy to follow.
We decided to try it out with Joshua’s Beta before investing in more fish. I got it situated in the living room, put the dragon tears in instead of rocks, filled it with treated water and put Mr. Fish in his new home.
It was easier to fill the dome with water than I thought it would be. Put the dome on the base and clamp it on. Slowly push down until it snaps into position (I made the mistake of doing this quickly and it saturated the wall with water) and viola! You have a Biobubble full of water and a happy fish!
Then we waited.
What were we waiting for?
For the test. I wasn’t about to go all out with decorations and more fish if our kitties were able to manipulate the Biobubble off the ledge. Mocha and Jasper are fairly large cats and if allowed to push their weight around, they can do some damage.
Mocha was our first visitor. I believe he fully enjoyed the view and now makes this a daily destination for his morning relaxation. I have yet to see him try to push the tank off, but he has tried to get on top of it (and he fell to the floor *tee hee hee*).
After several days of our trial run, we decided it was time to let Joshua have his fish back and we purchased our family fish.
We bought 3 guppies and 2 ghost shrimp and some leaves to go around the filter.
As you can see in the photo, the Biobubble is placed in the main portion of our living room. It is fairly quiet and the hum of the air pump actually is relaxing to have in the background noise of our lives.
The Biobubble does a great job keeping the water clear and it’s super easy to feed the fish (take the top gray cap off). Now we just have to remember who’s turn it is to feed them (or there will be a big fight).
