Product information

Nutrition for aquarium plants
Healthy plants are important in every aquarium. Plants provide the aquarium with vital oxygen for the aquarium inhabitants, prevent algae growth and remove problem-causing substances.

Healthy plants = healthy fish

A lot of aquarium plants absorb their nutrients additionally or even mainly through their roots. It is therefore important to provide the plant roots with nutrients. JBL AquaBasis Plus contains all the essential nutrients for healthy and vigorous aquarium plant growth. The function can easily be compared to a charged battery: JBL AquaBasis Plus supplies the energy (nutrients) for the plants and, when the supply runs low it can be recharged with the help of liquid fertilisers (JBL Ferropol und JBL FerropolRoot).

FAQ
Is it necessary to add an additional nutrient substrate such as JBL AquaBasis under JBL Manado, or do JBL Manado’s properties enable it to do without?

JBL Manado itself doesn’t contain any fertilizer. JBL Manado is, however, able to absorb nutrients (especially trace elements) to supply to the plant roots.

For a good plant growth it is advisable to use JBL AquaBasis plus underneath JBL Manado.

Unlike in natural waters, aquariums with fish mostly have a surplus of nutrients caused by feeding and the resulting fish excrement. Thus nitrates and phosphates in large (often too large!) quantities are available for the plants.
