Keep Your Eyes Open For Multibuy Livestock Deals:

Oase BioMaster Thermo 850 is a very popular external filter from the German company Oase which also includes a heater. The Thermo 850 can cope with aquariums up to 850 litres of either salt or fresh water. The filter comes ready to use with in our opinion basic filter media. The included media consists of mostly sponge with a handful of hel-x 13 biomedia. Whilst this combination of media will be more than adequate for nearly all aspects of fish keeping there is room to improve. Oase have more than likely not gone overboard with the media knowing advanced hobbyist would prefer to choose their own.

Oase BioMaster Thermo 850 Features

An Easy to Clean pre filter that’s purpose is to extend the service intervals. If more porous media that’s capable of supporting Anaerobic, Nitrate removing bacteria the lifespan of this media becomes greatly extended.

A carrying handle which might not impress but, it makes life easier and we think its a nice touch.

The  400 watt heater which can not be described as built in as we have seen else on the web. The Oase BioMaster Thermo 850 just has ability to accommodate one. So its more of a place to put the heater which in this case is a standard glass heater. The heater fits and seals through a port in the filters head that tightens around the heater sealing firmly. The heater can be removed and used on its own and also the filter has a blank that when fitted the filter can function without the heater.

The Primer Oase BioMaster Thermo 850 has a built in primer as primers go operates well and seems to be well designed with a smooth efficient action. The shut off safety valve has a design unlike most other filters, it works well and has outlets that can also be positioned to suit.

Just A couple of things worth a mention about the Thermo 850.

You have to remember we are a an actual store that has a website so we do in store point out any issues or quirks with products. What we would make customers aware of instore is the danger associated with the heater.

Make sure that you never plug the heater in before the filter is primed and running. Otherwise the heater will switch on in a filter filled only with air. When you then prime the Oase BioMaster Thermo 850 the water will rapidly cool the heater and cause it to crack. Also if the heater is plugged in whilst the filter isn’t filled with water it will melt the media baskets.

Always unplug the heater at least ten minutes before servicing the BioMaster Thermo 850. This gives it time to cool down as there is no way of knowing if it is on or off so we must assume its on just to be safe.

Abyss Aquatics Top Tip

When you first set up the filter use the heater blank and put the heater in the fish tank. This way you can dial in the heater much easier without having to remove it from the filter to tweak. Once you are happy that the correct temperature is set fit it to the filter.

  2. Livestock Shipping Fee: The livestock shipping fee charged to customers of £19.99 does not cover the true cost, and therefore, there is a minimum spend requirement of £30.00 before the option for livestock shipping becomes available.

Failure to wait for livestock: Not waiting for livestock, even if there is a reasonable delay, or cancelling an order after it has been dispatched will lead to you incurring charges for an emergency return to the base. Additionally, any losses of livestock will also be charged to you. Please be aware that the items you are ordering are living creatures – livestock. We kindly ask that you refrain from ordering livestock if you are unable to accommodate the possibility of a delayed delivery.

    These terms and conditions are a fundamental aspect of our policy. Our primary goal is to dissuade individuals who could react negatively to a delayed delivery and subsequently request order cancellations. It is of utmost importance to underscore that your order pertains to living creatures, not mere inanimate objects. In the event of an occasional delay, it is crucial that you respond in a rational and responsible manner, taking into account the welfare of the livestock. We kindly request that you refrain from placing an order for livestock if you tend to react strongly to such situations. By proceeding with the order of livestock, you indicate your acceptance and agreement to abide by these specified terms and conditions.

  6. Signature Requirement: Livestock deliveries require a signature upon receipt and cannot be left in a safe location. This precaution ensures proper handling and the well-being of the livestock.

Unfortunately, deliveries to Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Isle of Man, Isles of Scilly, Channel Islands, and certain Scottish offshore postcodes may not be possible.
