Product information

Nutrition for aquarium plants
Plants provide the aquarium with vital oxygen for your aquarium inhabitants, prevent algae growth, remove pollutants, provide hiding places and reduce germs. The plant fertiliser system supplies the plants with the main nutrient CO2 through the water. The plants absorb this and convert it into sugar and oxygen in photosynthesis with the help of light.

The difference between Bio-CO2 and pressurised gas cylinder CO2 systems:
Bio-CO2 systems are based on the biological process of yeast fermentation in which CO2 is produced. Here 2 bio-components are made to react in a bottle/reaction vessel. To replenish the system after about 40 days, the reaction bottle/vessel only needs to be refilled with water and the two bio-components.
In the CO2 pressurised gas cylinder system, the CO2 gas is present at about 60 bar in steel pressure cylinders. When they are empty, they can be refilled by a specialist retailer (reusable cylinders, M system) or they are disposable cylinders (U system) which are simply replaced.

It makes no difference to the plants where the CO2 comes from, whether it is from biological or pressurised cylinder systems. They grow much stronger as soon as a CO2 system is installed. The systems are of more concern to the aquarists, who have to decide whether they want disposable cylinders, refillable pressure cylinders or a pressureless bio system.

In addition to CO2 fertilisation, it is important you don’t neglect the other components that are necessary for healthy & vigorous growth of the aquarium plants: the right light (e.g. JBL LED SOLAR); sufficient fertilisation with minerals & trace elements (JBL PROFLORA FERROPOL); preferably a root fertilisation for strongly rooting plants with JBL PROFLORA FERROPOL ROOT/ The 7 Balls; the right water temperature (usually between 23 and 26 °C); and the absence of plant-eating fish.

FAQ
What is the minimum working pressure I need to use the JBL CO2 accessories?

All check valves or backflow protectíons from JBL require a working pressure of at least 0.6 bar for the valve to open. This feature can be found in the JBL PROFLORA CO2 TAIFUN SAFESTOP, COUNTSAFE and INLINE. The JBL PROFLORA TAIFUN diffusers also all already work with this pressure. A higher working pressure is not necessary, which is why all accessories also work with the JBL PROFLORA BIO SETs. Due to installation, a slightly higher working pressure than 0.6 bar may be necessary due to long hoses and other components, which is why the presetting of 1.2 bar is sufficient in any case.

May the JBL PROFLORA CO2 products only be used for the aquarium?

Yes, the JBL PROFLORA CO2 products are designed exclusively for use in the aquarium. The gas contained promotes plant growth and works with fine precision so that even the smallest quantities can be supplied to the aquarium. Constant operation and the safety of the fish are thus guaranteed.

New Bio-CO2 products from JBL

Owners of small aquariums (10-40 l) have the chance to see their aquarium plants growing stronger, faster and more beautiful, almost jumping out of the tank for joy when CO2 is added, and all without great expense. A small aquarium doesn’t need a large CO2 system. That’s why we’ve developed the new JBL PROFLORA CO2 STARTER BIO SET.
