FAQ
What happens if I accidentally overdose Tropol?

In order for the desired effect to unfold, the recommended dosage on the product must be adhered to. Larger deviations can lead to undesirable side effects. In such a case, please observe your animals, check your water values and carry out a partial water change of 50 % in case of abnormalities, so that the overdose is diluted and reduced to a normal level. When measuring the number of litres, bear in mind that your aquarium is also filled with wood and stones that displace water.

Can I use JBL Aradol if I have shrimp in my tank?

JBL Clonal can in fact bind the active ingredients of JBL Tropol, thereby removing them from the water.

Does JBL Tropol contain mineral acides which influence the pH level ?

No, JBL Tropol does not contain any mineral acids. It consists of humic substance extracts to produce the blackwater effect, amongst other substances. A slight decrease in the pH level may occur, depending on the carbonate hardness. This, though, is not enough to achieve low pH levels.

There is no risk of a sudden drop in acidity when using JBL Tropol.

Kolejny udany preparat JBL.Moje Skalary uwielbiają JBL Tropol.

Prodotto che utilizzo da poco tempo, in sostituzione al Biotopol per il mio acquario “Blackwater”.

Trovandomi bene con il Biotopol, non ho esitato a provare il Tropol.

Devo dire che non noto nessun effetto negativo sui Ciclidi.

Al momento dell’inserimento, l’acqua si inscurisce un po’ per via dei componenti presenti nella soluzione, ma non creano alcun disturbo alla vista.

Ein Klasse Produkt. Ich benutze es mittlerweile in jedem meiner Becken und Pflanzenwuchs und Agilität der Tiere (Fische/Garnelen) ist spürbar gestiegen. Algen werden wie versprochen auch zurück gedrängt. Ich kann jedem Aquarianer nur empfehlen dieses Produkt zu nutzen.

Von all den Produkten von JBL die ich liebe, ist das Tropol unangefochten auf Platz eins, und das ist auch schnell erklärt!

Huminstoffe aus der Flasche gibt es viele. Doch die meisten haben schlicht nur den Effekt, das Wasser einzutrüben. Durch das Aktivjod im Tropol stärkt man aber sichtlich die Abwehrkräfte unserer Schützlinge. In etwas höherer Dosis ist es außerdem hevorragend unterstützend bei Kranken Zierfischen, vor allem bei bakteriellen Infekten sowie Kropfbildung!

Des weiteren habe ich seit der Verwendung von Tropol in meiner Kampffischzucht kein Tier mehr mit Curling (eingedrehtes Flossengewebe). Die Tiere wirken an sich wesentlich fitter und man merkt förmlich, wie es ihnen gut tut.

Auch bei der Eingewöhnung neuer Schwarzwasserfischen merkt man sichtlich die positiven Effekte vom Tropol. Für mich ist es das Beste, was man zuführen kann und aus meiner Aquaristik nicht mehr weg zu denken!
