Useful and practical tools

You can, of course, drag a water bucket for a partial water change, scratch out the algae inside from the glass panes with wet arms, individually collect snails by the thousands etc. But there are really useful aids which we would like to introduce to you:

Pflege alle 2 Wochen

Wir zeigen und erklären Ihnen alles, was im 2-Wochenrhytmus durchgeführt werden sollte und wie es richtig geht: Der wichtige Wasserwechsel, wie Sie bei verdunstetem Wasser reagieren sollten und die Wasseraufbereitung nach dem Teilwasserwechsel.

Cleaning of aquarium

Carry out a partial water change (1/3) every 2 weeks which ideally should be combined with the cleaning of the bottom. For that you need a mechanical substrate cleaner (gravel cleaner).

Pane cleaning

Your panes will show an algae coating after a while. There are many glass pane cleaners to remove the algae. Just always take care that stones/sand/gravel NEVER get between the tool and the pane as this causes irreparable scratches in the glass! Ideal are glass pane cleaner magnets you can move from outside, whereas the internal part removes the algae (JBL Floaty range). If the internal element falls off because of too strong movements, it will float to the surface and can be retrieved using the external magnet.

Für Kunststoffscheiben (Plexiglas/Acryl) bitte keine der genannten Scheibenreiniger benutzen. Jeder davon würde die Scheibe zerkratzen. Für Kunststoffscheiben wurde extra der JBL FLOATY acrylic/glass entwickelt! Dieser FLOATY darf anders herum problemlos bei Glas verwendet werden und ist speziell in kleinen Aquarien mit Glasstärken bis 4 mm sehr beliebt.

Bei gebogenen Frontscheiben liegen die Scheibenmagneten oder Klingen natürlich nur an, wenn sie vertikal angesetzt werden. Besonders der JBL FLOATY BLADE und der JBL Blanki ist ideal für gebogene Frontscheiben.

Die Aquarium Scheibe reinigen

Wir zeigen Ihnen, wie falsche Reinigung von Aquarienscheiben zu Kratzern führt und wie Sie es vermeiden können. Wie können gebogene Scheiben gereinigt werden? Wie verhindern Sie, dass Sie die Silikonverklebung beschädigen? Warum sollten keine Haushaltsreiniger verwendet werden? Wir zeigen und erklären alle Arten von Scheibenreinigern für Ihr Aquarium.

Inserting plants

Of course you can press the plants into the substrate with the tips of your fingers. But from experience it is far easier and also better if you use long pincers. Before inserting the plants you should also shorten the roots with scissors.

Cutting plants

At some point stem plants will grow to the surface and need to be shortened. With special scissors this can be done very precisely in just a few minutes. For rosettes you need to remove unsightly leaves or to cut off offshoot. Long scissors are very helpful for this too.

Hose installation

As soon as you install water-bearing hoses, this can quickly lead to kinks at the edges which can reduce the water flow tremendously. Hose guides help you to prevent this problem easily and effectively.

Sollten Schläuche einen Knick aufweisen und JBL AntiKink passt aus irgendwelchen Gründen nicht, erwärmen Sie den Schlauch, bzw. die Schlauchstelle in heißem Wasser, bis Sie die Knickstelle herausdrücken können. Lassen Sie den Schlauch erkalten und verlegen Sie ihn dann neu, ohne Knickstellen zu erzeugen bzw. dann mit JBL AntiKink .

Hose cleaning

Measurements have shown that biofilms can reduce the filter performance in the hoses by 25 %! We therefore recommend you clean the hoses with a hose brush about every 3 months.

Maintenance of technical items

Seals and filter impellers also need a bit of maintenance and cleaning.

Gummidichtungen und O-Ringe verlieren im Laufe der Zeit ihre Geschmeidigkeit und damit manchmal auch ihre Eigenschaft, etwas 100%ig abzudichten. Mit Hilfe von Silikonfett kann die Geschmeidigkeit wieder hergerstellt werden, so dass die Dichtfunktion oder auch die Beweglichkeit bei z. B. Hebeln wieder funktioniert. Wichtig ist nicht eine große Menge an Silikonfett, sondern die komplette Benetzung mit Silikonfett lückenlos von jeder Seite.

Tipp: Benutzen Sie Silikonspray niemals in der Nähe von Latexmaterial!!! Latex verträgt nicht einmal Spuren von Silikonspray-Nebel und geht kaputt.
