without comments

Ever since BiOrb fish tanks came out, fish lovers have been clamouring for the latest from the brand, seeking accessories and ornaments for enhancing their BiOrb tanks. BiOrb has in fact come out with various accessories ever since its inception, but some of these stand out above the rest for various reasons. Below are just some of the best accessories available from BiOrb or, at least, the ones that you should not have to think twice about getting.

1. BiOrb Digital Thermometer easily one of the more important items in the list, this thermometer is a must for those who take their fish tanks and fish breeding seriously. More seasoned aquariologists are aware that most fish have ideal temperatures for their habitats, and that these temperatures play a part in determining how healthy the fish are, how long they last, and how well they breed. With this thermometer, you can always keep an eye on the temperature of your fish tank and make sure it is at the right heat (or coolness) for your fish.

2. BiOrb Intelligent LED Light a mere 18mm thick and dependent on only 12 volts of power for operation, this intelligent light is a must-have for those who want to simulate more realistic settings for their fish by providing them with full light cycles. The LED light, once set, automatically goes through a cycle involving sunrise, day, sunset, and night stages. For those whose fish do not depend on only one stage of the typical light cycle in a day, this is an excellent accessory to the tank.

3. BiOrb Algae Cleaner touted by BiOrb as a cleaner you can use for all your small fish tanks, even the non-BiOrb ones, this cleaners blades make use of a unique design that mean it removes algae in sheets instead of in clouds, as is traditionally done by most algae cleaners. This can simplify aquarium maintenance quite impressively.

4. BiOrb Bubble Tube Guard a ridiculous product, some people might say, but long-time fish-keepers would know better. Fish tend to find their way into the strangest locations, including the bubble tubes in aquaria, so BiOrb has come out with a prevention for at least that possibility. With the BiOrb Bubble Tube Guard, you are assured that your fish shall not be sneaking into your bubble tube and sabotaging themselves, even while ensuring that your bubbles keep going.

Braid Fishing Line

without comments

A braiding fishing line is one of the earliest brands of fishing lines which is still in popular use up to this time because of its exceptionally strength. This brand of fishing line is made from merging different synthetic materials formed together. Initially braid lines were made from natural materials until recent years when the makers began to combine the synthetic fibers such as Micro-dyneema, Spectra and Dacron. These fibers helps to produce a fishing line that has more benefits than that of the typical fishing line manufactured from monofilament components and is often called a super line. This feature has resulted in it becoming even more popular over the past few years and have developed many different quality make to choose from such as spiderwire, powerpro and whiplash.

The toughness of the braid fishing line makes it very good resistant agent to the abrasion that causes other fishing lines to go out of use quickly and break so it lasts much longer than the regular fishing line. They also do not stretch as much as other lines, so they are much more sensitive and this allows an angler to feel the slightest bites from a fish. Most fishers who use them have to use scissors to cut them instead of clippers. Braided lines can be successfully used on any kind of fishing reel and are most well known as great lines for bait casting spools, particular for trolling. If you use it make sure that your fishing rod can properly handle it.

Braided lines are created with a tinier diameter, so they are very bendy and don’t contain any spool recall like that of monofilament lines that means the cord is not able to coil when it comes off the reel. Since they drift so well, they are ideal lines for top water baits. They also have very little stretch so that the fish lure can be easily dragged away from a fish.  However, you must setup a drag set so that a fish is not able to rip the hooks out of its mouth if it tries to makes a strong escape right at the boat. Braid fishing lines work particularly excellent in certain fishing situations but they still do contain some drawbacks that can sometimes outweight the advantages.

Sometimes the toughness of braided lines can also turn into a disadvantage. A careless fisherman can cut his fingers on these line as if he pulls the line too hard when trying to pull it free from being caught in a tree or rock. Furthermore braided lines are a lot more costly than other types of fishing lines because the production procedures are a lot more expensive than that of monofilament lines so this expense is given to the consumer and ends up being more costly than the other brands.

On average braided lines are more opaque in the water than other lines which makes it more visible to the fishes so most fishermen do not like to use it in plain waters because it is easier to see it can easily scare the fish, mainly on finesse baits where you are attempting to attract a fish to bite a lure they can see for an extended time. Fishermen have however, found a solution for this by connecting a monofilament at the end of the braided fishing line to use as a leader to minimize the high visibility of the braided fishing line.
