Brochure: Fish nutrition

Fish nutrition sounds quite simple - but the subject is as comprehensive as it is for humans! It needs to taste good and be healthy and it’s no different for fish. This brochure tells you what’s important when you’re feeding your aquarium inhabitants species-appropriately and what advantages the scientifically developed JBL PRONOVO food concept offers.


Water test brochure PROAQUATEST

Testing water - the most important step to understanding your aquarium! We show you which tests are available, how to carry out tests correctly, what the individual water values mean exactly and how high their values should be. In addition, for the first time you will receive an outline showing the water values of the various habitats worldwide, as determined on the JBL expeditions. And there is also a water analysis sheet for entering the water values you measure.


Plant care brochure

It’s not all that hard to get your aquarium plants growing perfectly. This brochure explains ALL the factors that should be considered. Liquid fertilisation, substrate fertilisers, CO2 addition, the requirements of aquatic plant species and even the subject of herbivorous fish, all these are explained in detail and in a way that is easy to understand. Anyone who still has problems with their aquarium plants after reading this brochure should perhaps rather switch to cacti…


Brochure LED SOLAR

The folder sets out everything relevant to aquarium lighting. In addition to the JBL LED SOLAR lighting range, topics such as light intensity in nature and under water are also explained. On JBL expeditions to the tropics and also in the laboratory, we collected light data to help us to better understand the subject of aquarium lighting. If you want to find out more about light for your aquarium and are perhaps thinking of switching to a top LED lamp, you’ll find everything you need to know here.



In the JBL TV videos, biologist Heiko Blessin explains aquaristic & terraristic related issues in an understandable and clear way. Whether it's setting up an aquarium or combating algae, all the topics are dealt with in detail. Videos of fish habitats filmed in South America can also be found on JBL TV. The JBL TV series is continually being expanded. You’ll find the videos on YouTube or with its corresponding product on the JBL website. Our brochure briefly describes all the JBL TV videos, including the playing time and a QR code link to the video.


Aquarium Catalogue 2021/2022

Terrarium Manual 2.0

Surveys have shown that the number of terrarium owners in Germany is again rising slightly. Turtles are still in first place, followed by snakes. Insect keeping occupies the last place, even though insects make up an incredibly large animal spectrum with one million species! Sometimes we develop products for aquaristics, like the JBL LED SOLAR lamps, which are nevertheless tried out by terrarium owners.


Pond Manual 2.0

Our cordial connection to top Japanese koi breeders has resulted in this increase in top knowledge, and we are happy to share it with you. Garden ponds are contemporary and fashionable. Our team at JBL develops the pond products to keep your fish healthy and algae under control.


Aquarium manual

Dear Aquarium Enthusiasts, ONE aquarium manual instead of many small booklets – for reasons of sustainability that was our aim. I have changed over to the new JBL LED lights in my own aquarium at home and I am absolutely thrilled with them! Our research department has succeeded in developing a full spectrum LED technology which works perfectly for aquarium plants. After all not every LED is suitable for our very specific aquatic demands. Scientists have developed the PAR value as a unit of measurement, which shows how much LED light is being created and made available to the plants. This means we can immediately see if an LED is promoting plant growth. Here’s wishing you all future enjoyment in the exciting field of aquatics! Warmest greetings Roland Böhme
