Installing The Substrate Heater JBL ProTemp Correctly

As aquarium owner you hear again and again about a “bottom heater” or a “Bodenfluter”. We have explained the purpose of this equipment in this post: JBL launches a new heating cable – warm feet sound good, but not for aquatic plants .

The advantages for the ecosystem aquarium are obvious and the plants benefit from the nutrient circulation. But how do you install this system in your home aquarium? For this it is important that the aquarium is empty. The subsequent installation in an aquarium already in operation is not possible.

The heating cable is attached by suction cups to the glass bottom of the aquarium and laid out in regular-sized loops. The following video shows you what the ideal installation looks like and where the transformer needs to be attached. After that you will see how the substrate is added to the substrate heater.
