Decoration (stones, roots)

Here’s how to create beautiful decorations in your aquarium

As soon as you know what fish you would like to keep you need to find out which decoration meets all the demands of the fish. Some fish species need stones, other ones rather roots and for a lot of fish this doesn’t matter as long as they have hiding places.

NEVER start the setup with the substrate but ALWAYS with the stones and/or the wood. Otherwise the substrate could sink, causing the construction to collapse.

Unstable constructions need to be fixed with an adhesive ( JBL ProHaru Universal - sticks underwater - or JBL AquaSil black ).

For heavy stones or constructions we advise you to use a dampening underlay under them which distributes the weight on the glass ( JBL AquaPad ). It’s no problem to cut the underlay to an appropriate size.

Ensure your decoration has a natural design and configuration. DON’T place large roots or stones in the middle of your aquarium but in an asymmetrical position to the left or right. This has a more beautiful effect.

The JBL themed aquariums give you some decorative ideas and show you what kind or stones or wood can be used.
