Ahead through research

To take product development seriously you need a good research basis. That’s why biologists work in the JBL research center and that’s why a JBL research team organises research expeditions to the native countries of the aquarium and terrarium animals, to observe the living habits of the in their natural habitats and to analyse the biotopes. This is the only way to develop professional products for optimal animal keeping.

Aquarium problems

Are you faced with algae problems or don’t your aquarium plants grow well? Is the water cloudy or are your fish ill? Don’t your water parameters correspond to your expectations? Our team of experts has thoroughly analysed the problems that occur in the aquatic field and offers you solutions which really work.


Turtles and tortoises are among the most popular of all terrarium animals and are despite (or even because of) their slowness absolute favourites for children too! A few points need to be remembered when keeping turtles, so that the animals feel comfortable, stay healthy and maybe even reproduce. We will give you tips and hints for their care.


Lighting is THE key to good terrarium keeping. Do your animals need only light, or do they need heat and UV? Here are the answers.

Biotope data

We have visited the biotopes of terrarium animals and documented the biotope data. Here you will find all the data collected from all over the world.

Algae problems

Why are algae a problem? What algae species can be found in the pond and how can you combat them effectively and for the long-term?

Fish diseases

In case your pond fish fall ill, we will show you which disease it is, and how to combat it reliably here.

Pond care

The different seasons (at least in Central Europe) require different care measures. Even in countries where there are no cold winters with minus degrees, factors like rainy seasons, dry seasons or perhaps a summer with particularly high temperatures all play a decisive role for the garden pond.
