Product information

Nature at Home – Home for Fish and Plants
Fish need to be as comfortable in the aquarium as they are in nature. Water dwellers have adapted to the acidity (pH value) of their habitat and also need to find similar conditions in the aquarium. The wrong pH value not only means stress for the aquarium dwellers but it also can be the cause for diseases or it can reduce their lifespan. The JBL water conditioners decrease or increase the pH level and make the water ideally suited to the requirements of the fish once more. Benefits of the JBL water conditioners Rapid decrease of the pH value thanks to natural oak extract, phosphate-free.

FAQ
Can JBL AquaDur plus be used together with JBL pH-Minus ?

It is not advisable to use the two products together. JBL pH-Minus cancels part of the desired water-stabilising effect of JBL AquaDur.

Can JBL Clynol, JBL Acclimol and JBL pH-Minus be used in a shrimp tank ?

Basically, all 3 of the water conditioners mentioned can be used in a shrimp tank.

However, when JBL pH-Minus is used, it’s important that it is only used in relation to the carbonate hardness. It is best to add JBL pH-Minus to the water intended for the water change and to then measure the carbonate hardness, which should not be less than 3-4. JBL Acclimol is suitable for shrimps, but is better suited for fish. JBL Clynol is beneficial for shrimps but you also need to add JBL Biotopol C, a water conditioner especially developed for shrimps.
