Momma Told Me: Go swim with the fish.


Are you ready to see how our Bio Bubble Aquarium turned out?

First, let's catch up the newcomers- What exactly is a Bio Bubble? Well, it's a lot of things really. It's an aviary, a hamster penthouse, a Chameleon Cantina, a turtle haven, a hermit habitat- yes, it truly can be any and all of those things. The only thing limiting your Bio Bubble is your imagination. If you have a small range pet, it can likely make itself at home inside one of the world's most unique consumer pet habitats, the Bio Bubble. This extraordinary animal habitat is ever expanding and features an array of accessories to suit your pet's needs. Currently there are 4 different models, the Terra, Wonder Bubble, and Aquarium- through the fourth, the Bio Bubble Premium can transition easily into any of the other three with a few accessories and a little imagination!

We decided to dip our toes in the Bio Bubble Aquarium to start. It actually can transition into a semi-aquatic, or even dry habitat, like the other units, but comes with a filter and pump accessory As well as the much needed Dome Gasket to withstand water pressure and keep liquids in place when expanding for cleaning. The Aquarium does come with a bottom plug, should you decide to relocate your fish and try your hand at insects, lizards, or whatnot. With the addition of a simple mesh, clear, or cage riser you can easily turn a Bio Bubble Aquarium into a rodent habitat, or even a butterfly sanctuary.

Of course one of the things I love most about the Aquarium conversion is the unique 360 degree 'dome' style tank that looks as if an aquarium is literally sprouting form your table. But how do you get all that water in there- and how do you clean it? It's really quite simple, and ingenious! With the patented expandable sleeve, that tucks away in the base, you can release expand the unit to create an easily accessible tank for cleaning and maneuvering. There are two 'pinching' locks on either side of the base which will pop the sleeve up when depressed. Next, carefully unsnap the four locking arms, and lift up the Dome.

Your tank vie is now similar to the above! Of course there are a few things to keep in mind when working in and around the expanded aquarium. The accordion style walls are supported by plastic hinges that do tend to feel the weight of the lid when the tank is full. If you plan to keep the tank at it's maximum water capacity enlist a second set of hands when expanding and removing the dome, or you might have some spill over. Also, keep in mind that if you put additional decorations, or even your hand, in the tank while it is full this will displace water. Lastly, be mindful of small tank inhabitants when collapsing the tank back to 'Dome' mode. Small fish and creatures might be hanging out in the folds of the sleeve, or near the tuck-away gap at the bottom. Always count heads before closing! See our complete Bio Bubble Aquarium set-up post here.

Again, when setting up any tank, it's best to organize all of your decorations ahead of time, before bringing fish home or filling with water. Keep in mind the dome had a convex top that gets narrow around the sides, in height. Close the dome before adding water to ensure all tank decorations will clear. You should also prepare your tank's water the day before picking up it's residents. Not only does water need to be treated (salt or fresh) for nitrates and chlorine, but you will need room temperature water and gradual acclimation before introducing the inhabitants to their new home. The Bio Bubble Aquarium holds 3 gallons of water, and should house no more than 3-4 (2" full grown) fish or inhabitants. Consider the community as whole when shopping for fish and be sure to talk to an expert about fish size and compatibility. (And, remember only one gender, unless you want baby fish!)

I purchased our aquarium decorations on Amazon, as they were cheaper than the big brand pet store. We themed our tank, much like Gary' (the Bet fish.) Our Spongebob theme really came together with the commercial merchandise, but we found there was no 'rock' to represent Patrick's home. I happened to find a 'coconut' home in the hermit crab section of our local pet store that covered up the filter nicely, while still allowing air flow and filtration. We also adopted a 'Mr. Krabs' who enjoys climbing on everything, in particular to the top of Squidward's house- and one living Moss Ball (affectionately named 'Squishy'.) Having live plants in your aquarium helps the oxygen content to keep the tank cleaner as a whole. You may buy a Bio Bubble habitat, online, at Wayfair.
