Question Baby Biorb questions

Hey,
I was just wondering a few thing about the baby biorb....

1. Is it really noisy (the filter)?
2. How any fish could I put in there and what types?
3. Do you have to clean it alot?
4. Is it easy t maintain.

I would really appreciate some answers :)
Thanks in advance :D

Welcome to the forum!

You mean this one right? Baby biOrb Silver Aquarium Kit at PETCO
You could but 1 Betta in it or maybe a handful of shrimp, that's about it.

Any tank will require regular maintenance such as water exchange 1x week, feeding and plan care if you go with live one's rather then plastic.
The smaller tanks are harder, specially on beginner to maintain a proper biological system that's needed (bacteria) add to that most beginners use plastic plants rather then live one's and you have quite a piece of work right there. Live Plants is a great part of your biological balance and will do a LOT work for you.

To tell you the truth if this is your first tank, take the same amount this Ball will cost you and just but a 10 gallon tank, trust me you WILL be much happier with it and have far more options about putting fish in it.

I don't really know the conversion UK Pounds-$ so I'll leave the judgment if that's pricey or cheap to you.

I def find the shape and size of these ones better.
However if you're short on $ for this project, I'd highly recommend to buy a used tank which will safe you quite some $ right there, that the extra cash towards live plants (generally you'll find the best deal online as far as price) and then see for one which water you have (hard or soft - KH and your pH) and then decide on fish.
