Product information

Chemical-free and harmless
Due to excessive feeding snails in the aquarium can reproduce rapidly. With the chemical-free snail trap Lim Collect II snails can be harmlessly and effectively caught and thus reduced in the aquarium.

Lim Collect II
The chemical-free snail trap has 2 small rods, which can be variably inserted in height to prevent fish from entering unintentionally. Should this still happen, the fish will not get any oxygen problems because of the water supply. The trap is also suitable to catch shrimp or crabs.

Easy to use
At night most fish have a resting phase. The exception are nocturnal fish such as many armored catfish. There is therefore only a low probability that smaller fish will enter the trap at night. Fill the snail trap with food, select the height to insert the rods and place the snail trap in the aquarium. Due to the inside leading struts, the snails will not be able to leave the trap again.

FAQ
JBL LimCollect II: Why is it best to only use the snail trap at night?

At night most fish have a sort of rest phase (although they do not necessarily sleep). Here, darkness means night, since activity decreases with darkness. Nocturnal fish - like many loricariid catfish - are exceptions, but generally the chances of smaller fish passing the fish trap at night are lower.

Fertilization is not just fertilization Part 1

Unlike in natural waters, aquariums with fish mostly have a surplus of nutrients caused by feeding and the resulting fish excrement. Thus nitrates and phosphates in large (often too large!) quantities are available for the plants.
