JBL Dreamscape®

Aquascaping aquarium type JBL Dreamscape®

With this aquarium in your living space you’re guaranteed to make heads turn. The reproduction of a mountain landscape with jagged rocks, valleys and meadows fascinates everyone. Small shrimps bustle about in the valleys and keep them clean. This aquarium style is called aquascaping.

Aquascaping is a style where landscapes above the water are recreated as underwater landscapes. This aquarium represents a mountain landscape with valleys and forests. After a few days the plants start growing and grow together into one unit. With this aquascaping aquarium you’re guaranteed to make all heads turn.

Modelled on nature

As already described, a landscape above water, such as a mountain landscape serves as a model. The sky is the limit for your imagination! Aquascapers also reproduce mountain gorges, forests with fallen trees and even deserts with cacti! If you like a model, take a photo of it and reproduce it under water. This is very demanding and not easy. But that is just the challenge for aquascapers.

Video about the setup of the JBL Dreamscape®

In a short 7 minute video we show you what the completed aquarium will look like and how to set it up step by step. Directly after the setup the plants have not yet developed properly. This will take around two weeks.

How to maintain your aquascaping aquarium

Illuminate your aquarium approx. 8 hours/day during the first 2 weeks.

Afterwards the maximum photoperiod can increase up to 12 hours/day.

Carry out a 50% water change 3 times per week during the first 3 weeks (each second day).

Afterwards a water change of 50 % each week is sufficient.

Check daily whether the technical items are working correctly ( Akvarijní filtr a příslušenství , Hnojení rostlin CO2 and Světlo ).

Plant care

Please make sure that you add enough CO2 from day one.

Start with the fertilisation 1 week after the initial start of the aquarium.

Use a complete fertiliser ( JBL PROFLORA Ferropol 15 ml weekly), best with an additional daily fertiliser ( JBL PROFLORA Ferropol 24 ), which you add into the aquarium in the morning, before switching on the lighting. Start with 50 % of the normal dosage and increase as the plant grows.

After 5-6 weeks you can start pruning the plants.

Depending on the plant species regular pruning is needed.

Please always remove dying or diseased leaves – this can be easily done with long scissors ( JBL PROSCAPE TOOLS S STRAIGHT ).

Maintenance time per week

45 minutes

How often do you need to empty and to clean the complete aquarium?

Your JBL Dreamscape® can stay healthy and beautiful for many years with the above mentioned care. Redecorating your aquarium after a few years, if you wish, will be no problem.

Feeding

2x daily as much as the fish can eat in 2 minutes.

Special features

Aquascape aquariums are absolute eye-catchers and really fascinate every viewer. But they also need a bit more maintenance than other aquarium types, because the plants are far more demanding. The weekly partial water change is a must. The fertilisation of the plants is also essential. Everyone who follows these two care measures will own a wonderful aquarium with invertebrates and fish, which you'll never get bored of! Finally it’s better not to position the aquarium in excessive light as direct sunlight promotes algae growth.

Miscellaneous

The fish, invertebrates and plants in this aquarium are uncomfortable in hard water. If you live in a region with hard water you need to adjust your tap water to the values recommended above by adding reverse osmosis water.

Water conditioning and tests

Tap water is not always suitable for fish. That’s why it needs to be adapted to the requirements of the fish with an appropriate water conditioner ( JBL Biotopol ), before they are added. Add a bacteria starter ( JBL Denitrol ) one hour later and now you can add fish. Please check the nitrite content with the JBL NO2 Nitrit Test every two days during the first two weeks. With the help of further water tests you can check in our Analýza vody online laboratoř whether the water is providing the best conditions for your fish, invertebrates and plants.
