The Large Bio-Orb comes with two pouches 400ml (14oz) of PyroDino and 200ml DinoNutrients. Large Bio-Orb can easily hold over 600ml (20oz) of PyroDino dinoflagellates.
During the daytime hours, the thousands of PyroDino dinoflagellates in the Bio-Orb convert light energy to chemical energy via photosynthesis. During this photosynthetic process, CO2 is converted to sugar and oxygen (O2) is released as a by-product.
At night, after the dark cycle starts 'usually after 7 pm' the PyroDino dinoflagellates stop producing oxygen and start producing the light-emitting compounds known as luciferin and luciferase. As the dark cycle progresses the amount of these light-emitting compounds increases.
When The Large Bio-Orb is swirled during its dark cycle (night time) the light-emitting compounds interact to release natural light known as bioluminescence. Shown here:
