I change my filter cartridge every 2-3 weeks and clean my tank once every week. I like that the service kit includes a special wipe to scrub algae off your tank. It's also nice how it includes Stress Coat and Stress Zyme!!

This biorb service kit comes with the
(1) filter cartridge
(2) cleaning pad
(3) Stress Zyme + and Stress Coat +
So it's great to purchase and get everything you need all in one package. I have the Baby Biorb and have been purchasing this service kit now for already 6 months. At first, I did have some challenges when removing and replacing the filter cartridge, as I did not ensure that the cartridge was secure. It's a little tricky, but nothing that practice will solve.
I have now mastered the removing and replacing of the filter cartridge. And it's easy that it's a whole unit to replace rather than several pieces.
Pros: includes 1 cleaning pad, includes 1 filter cartridge, includes stress zyme & stress coat +
Cons: no cons

It's nice to get a filter, sachet of treatment and a cleaning cloth in one package. The cloths are easy to use and don't scratch. The filters on the newer models can be difficult to fit securely and I have found when I thought it was on it popped up and off. It can be a pain (I have the Mega Orb) to get the filter changed without screwing up all of your plants. I do replace them more than every 4 weeks but I have two Orandas and their messy! As long as you keep up with it it does keep the tank clean.

Our tank has been in use since 12/05 and we still enjoy the ease of keeping it clean. We have ours in a bright room which means that we have to clean it more frequently but it's so easy to do nobody minds. The service kits are all inclusive so it's not a big deal.

I saw the other review that the filters do not fit, but that has not been my experience. I purchased my BiUbe tank December 2006, so maybe that makes a difference. My only issue with the tank and filter is that the features mentioned that I only needed to change the filter once per month, but I end up changing it about every two weeks. I have a red-capped oranda in my tank, so I don't know if having a cold water fish instead of warm water makes a difference in the amount of waste. I'm a newbie fish owner so I'm just learning, but I don't have any issues with the tank or filters other than the frequency of cleaning the tank - even though cleaning the tank only takes about 15 minutes.

The newly designed filter cartridge is incompatible with the bubble tube apparatus that was provided with the fish tank. The clips on the new cartridge have been redesigned to provide a more secure fit. Unfortunately, they do not interface with the top that the tube goes through.
