Aquarium manual

Dear Aquarium Enthusiasts, ONE aquarium manual instead of many small booklets – for reasons of sustainability that was our aim. I have changed over to the new JBL LED lights in my own aquarium at home and I am absolutely thrilled with them! Our research department has succeeded in developing a full spectrum LED technology which works perfectly for aquarium plants. After all not every LED is suitable for our very specific aquatic demands. Scientists have developed the PAR value as a unit of measurement, which shows how much LED light is being created and made available to the plants. This means we can immediately see if an LED is promoting plant growth. Here’s wishing you all future enjoyment in the exciting field of aquatics! Warmest greetings Roland Böhme


Pond Manual 2.0

Dear Pond Enthusiast, The very size of this new pond manual tells you that we have completely reworked the pond and koi sections. Our cordial connection to top Japanese koi breeders has resulted in this increase in top knowledge, and we are happy to share it with you. Garden ponds are contemporary and fashionable. Our team at JBL develops the pond products to keep your fish healthy and algae under control. Changes in legislation mean that new requirements are constantly being made. As a result, some products have been discontinued. However our research department has always managed to develop new and legally compliant products, so that you can continue to enjoy pursuing the wonderful hobby that is pond care! Best regards Your Roland Böhme Managing Director JBL


Terrarium Manual 2.0

Dear Terrarium Enthusiast, Surveys have shown that the number of terrarium owners in Germany is again rising slightly. Turtles are still in first place, followed by snakes. Insect keeping occupies the last place, even though insects make up an incredibly large animal spectrum with one million species! I am very happy about this development and we are hearing similar reports from many other countries. Sometimes we develop products for aquaristics, like the JBL LED SOLAR lamps, which are nevertheless tried out by terrarium owners. When they excitedly tell me how much better their aquarium plants are growing, it makes me very proud of my team. We put a lot of effort and time into product development and are naturally really pleased to hear such success stories! I wish you all a lot of fun with this new edition of our terrarium manual which is now even more comprehensive! Sincerely Roland Böhme General Manager JBL
