Product information

All loaches come from Asia and are ground-oriented fish. They therefore eat mainly from the substrate. Many species, such as the clown loach, skunk loach, yoyo loach and orange-finned loach are good snail eaters!

How do bottom dwellers in a community aquarium get their food?
You’ll have seen this: Someone throws a food tablet into the aquarium for their bottom-dwelling loaches, but the fish in the other water zones grab the food tablet and the loaches go empty-handed! The other variant: The loaches are supposed to get some of the other fish’s food. But too often so much food is fed that it’s enough for the loaches and the algae as well! The loaches may not be able to reach food that lands in the decoration. This can spoil and quickly lead to algae problems.
This is how it works better: first feed the fish in the upper water layers and then, when they are in a "feeding frenzy", throw in one or two food tablets for the loaches.

How can you proceed if you keep different bottom dwellers in one aquarium? You can feed 2 types of tablets (e.g. JBL PRONOVO CORYDORAS for armored catfish and JBL PRONOVO BOTIA for loaches) at the same time without any problems. It is even beneficial for the fish, as they are offered more variety and yet each group of fish gets its species-appropriate nutrition.

What is the difference between tablets and wafers? Food tablets (e.g. JBL PRONOVO TAB, JBL PRONOVO BOTIA) are mechanically compressed from fine flake food. Wafers, on the other hand, are thinly cut from a pulp and a "continuous sausage" pressed out of the extruder and dried.

FAQ
How long does the food keep after opening?

Please ensure you buy a packaging size suitable for your aquarium/terrarium/pond so that the quantity contained is used up within 4 months. Compare it with a tin of biscuits lying around for several months. When properly stored they are not necessarily soggy, but they are not quite as tasty as when the packet was opened. Therefore it is not advisable to use the food after this time.

The repeated opening and closing of the packaging brings the food into contact with bacteria and humidity over a longer storage period. Thus the quality of the premium food reduces continuously and this influences the vitamin content and the freshness of the food. For the benefit of your animals you always should feed them fresh food.

Cuando cae al fondo empieza a deshacerse muy lentamente lo que hace que los peces de menor tamaño puedan picotear cerca pero sobretodo a las botias y loricáridos le vuelve loco.

Meine Flossensauger lieben es. Sind sehr schüchtern, aber sobald so eine Tablette reingeworfen wird kommen die sofort raus und vergessen alles was um sich ist und man kann die gut bei beobachten.

Aufgrund der guten Zusammensetzung, kann ich es auch meinen Garnelen und Schnecken füttern und sie super versorgen. Die Tabs lösen sich langsam im Wasser auf und legen sich so wie ein Film überall ab und alle Tiere bekommen etwas ab! Wenn man die Tabs an die Scheibe drückt, kann man den Tieren toll beim Fressen zusehen! Top!

PUSH messages from JBL

What are PUSH messages? As part of the W3C standard, web notifications define an API for end-user notifications that are sent to the user's desktop and/or mobile devices via the browser. Notifications appear on the end devices as they are familiar to the end user from apps installed on the device (e.g. emails). Notifications appear on the end user’s device, just like an app (e.g. for emails) installed on the device.

These notifications enable a website operator to contact its users whenever they have a browser open - it doesn’t matter whether the user is currently visiting the website or not.

To be able to send web push notifications, all you need is a website with a web push code installed. This allows brands without apps to take advantage of many of the benefits of push notifications (personalised real-time communications at just the right moment).
