Why is there the JBL PROSCAPE programme in addition to the JBL PROFLORA?

Different requirements

More and more aquarium owners are getting the “aquascaping" bug. Aquascaping is the modelling of landscapes under water. This can be a mountain landscape or a natural habitat (biotope). Aquascapers have somewhat different requirements than the average aquarist: they will keep more plants and more demanding ones, and they will have fewer or no fish in the aquarium. And this is where the main differences lie compared to the "normal" community aquarium: There is a lot of feeding in a community aquarium and this provides a certain amount of nitrogen and phosphates. In a plant-dominated aquarium these nutrients are in short supply and need to be added separately ( PROSCAPE Special NPK fertiliser). In a community aquarium a fertiliser like this would lead to overfertilisation and thus be nonsensical. Water tests will help you check the individual fertiliser components in the water so that you can adapt the dosage precisely to suit your aquarium.

The right tools

Every aquascaper needs the right tools , to do work on the aquarium. And there are also crucial differences in the choice of substrate: aquascapers use special baked earths called SOIL. For aquascaping aquariums without invertebrates, SOILs are maximally loaded with plant nutrients ( JBL PROSCAPE PLANT SOIL BROWN ). For aquariums with invertebrates there is a second soil variant which is identical to the JBL PROSCAPE PLANT SOIL, but has NOT been additionally loaded with fertiliser ( JBL PROSCAPE SHRIMPS SOIL BROWN ). Aquascaping aquariums with many plants naturally need a lot of light. The control computer JBL LED SOLAR CONTROL for the LED SOLAR lamps has an extra programme for plant aquariums ( Aquascaping aquarium type JBL Dreamscape® ). Practically all aquascapes need a CO2 fertilisation system. Their many and often demanding aquarium plants have an enormously high CO2 requirement.

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.

JBL GmbH & Co. KG provides this service free of charge, and it is easy to activate or deactivate.
