JBL ProScape Calculator

The three most important factors for your ProScape aquarium are the nutrient balance to feed the plants, the substrate and the lighting.

By means of the 3 practical calculators (fertilization calculator, soil calculator and light calculator) you can instantly find out what dosage of your JBL ProScape Fertilizer and what quantity of substrate are required or whether the existing / planned lighting is sufficient. Just enter the required data into the mask and you’ll immediately receive a tailor-made recommendation for your aquarium. Test it now!

Healthy plant growth is mainly dependent on the following three factors: the supply of light, the supply of CO2 and a sufficient/optimal supply of mineral nutrients. Microelements are trace elements required by the plants in small quantities, whereas macroelements are needed in higher quantities to ensure plant growth. In densely planted aquariums both micro and macroelements are consumed in large quantities. In aquariums with a low fish stock, not only the microelements, but also the macroelements nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium can decline to a minimum. In such cases it’s best to calculate how much JBL ProScape fertilizer you need. In order to supply the aquatic plants with exactly the right amount of fertilizer, we recommend dosing in two steps. For the first step, set the water values to the ideal values for ProScape aquariums. In the second step determine the daily consumption of the water plants. This will enable you to determine the optimal re-dosing of the water plants based on their consumption. Now there’s nothing to stop you from having gorgeous plants in your home aquarium.

If we transfer Liebig’s Law of the Minimum to the field of aquatics, the importance of a balanced fertilization becomes soon clear. To attain this we look at the initial values of the aquarium water, the biomass of the plants and thus the daily consumption of nutrients. The setting "Professional Scaper" gives you the opportunity to receive the dosing recommendation of all the individual components. The normal dosing recommendation is tailor-made for the JBL ProScape scaper.
