Problems With A Biorb

    Hi, I'm just wondering if anyone knows what could have created this patch on my Biorb, it looks like a melt mark.

    The biorb is near the window(not to near as shown in the photo) but the curtain is always drawn. I did have a wireless router on the unit next to the tank so I'm not sure if that could have made this mark.

    Very new to this!

    I've heard of biorbs shattering before. Seeing the acrylic start to appear to melt doesn't sit well. If I were you, I'd start shopping for a replacement tank before tragedy strikes.

    This is what I was hoping to avoid! The tank was only set up on Sunday!

    Did you get it used?

    Yes I did but the mark wasn't there when I bought it, it was throughly inspected when I set it up.

    Okay. I asked if you got it used because, if you got it new, then you could probably get a replacement sent to you. But since it was used that isn't really an option.
