Product information

Cichlids are an incredibly diverse group of fish with 1700 species. They range in size from a few centimetres (checkerboard cichlid) to 80 cm Crenicichla species. All cichlids are brooders. Their food spectrum ranges from microorganisms to plants and other fish. It is therefore important to be well informed about the species kept in the aquarium!
JBL PRONOVO CICHLID S has been specially developed for smaller species up to about 10/12 cm in length. The most common of these species kept in the aquarium are
Microgeophagus, Apistogramma, Pelvicachromis, Pelmatochromis, Nannacara, Nanochromis, Crenicara, Laetacara, Dicrossus und Ivanacara. Eartheaters of the genera Geophagus and Satanoperca grow large, yet also prefer small-sized food, which they seek out from the sand (hence the name eartheater).

JBL PRONOVO CICHLID M is suitable for all medium-sized cichlids from 8-20 cm. This includes many species of the genera Cichlasoma, Acarichthys, Aequidens, Thorichthys, Amalatitlania, Crytoheros, Heros, Andinocara, Pterophyllum, Uaru and many more.

JBL PRONOVO CICHLID XL is then ideal for the big guys between 15 and 25 cm. This includes many species of the genera Crenicichla, Cichla, Amphilophus, Astronotus, Mayaheros, Cichlasoma, Rocio and several others.

Advantages of JBL foods:
Use of pure fish protein without cheap fish meal. Thus less phosphates and fewer algae problems.
Optimum protein/fat ratio leads to healthy growth.
Mainly proteins from aquatic animals. Meat from warm-blooded animals is NOT processed at JBL!

Prebiotic: Scientists are agreed on this that prebiotics promote digestion and thus health. In the case of our fish, there is another essential aspect: with better digestion, less is excreted and the water is thus less polluted, causing fewer algae problems and keeping the water cleaner.

ShakaAnimalStudio - German

Meine Oskars bekommen viel Frostfutter aber zwischendurch wollte ich auch mal Pellets geben, leichter gesagt wie getan - ihnen schmecken keine Pellets. Bis ich diese ausprobiert habe, sie lieben sie und sind ganz verrückt drauf. Danke, ich werde ganz bestimmt Nachschub bestellen :)

aquarium.meer91 - German

Meine Pfauenaugenbuntbarsche lieben dieses Futter.

Es sinkt langsam zu Boden. Sogar mein Wabenschilderwels und mein Rochen fressen es sehr gern. Top!

P. Pfeiffer - German

Ein wirklich tolles Futter was von allen meinen Tieren sehr gern gefressen wird!

Selbst meine Rochen...die wirklich sehr schwer an sowas zu gewöhnen sind haben es gefressen.

Sehr empfehlenswert!

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).

Web notifications are part of the W3C standard and define an API for end user notifications. A notification makes it possible to inform the user about an event, such as a new blog post, outside the context of a website.
