Product information

Clean and healthy water
Plant and food remains and metabolic substances lead to a deterioration of the quality of the water in the aquarium. Good water quality is necessary for healthy fish and plants. This can be achieved with various filters and filter materials. The filters suck in the aquarium water and remove the pollution and waste materials with the filter material from the water.

Technical Data

FAQ
How does JBL NitratEx act?

How does JBL NitratEx act?JBL NitratEx acts as an ion exchanger that is regenerated with cooking salt. 250 ml bind 9,000 mg NO₃.

Does JBL NitratEx also filter iron out of the water ?

No, JBL NitratEx is a selective ion exchanger for nitrate. Besides this, nitrate has a negative charge in aqueous solutions, whereas iron is positive.

Where did my algae come from?

Algae problems in an aquarium can never be traced to just one factor or general condition, and instead, are always the result of a combination of different factors, which include light, fertilization, water changes – specifically, how often and how much – feeding, fish population and, of course, the specific water parameters.

According to analyses that were performed over a course of a number of years, red algae, at least the common brush algae and beard algae, occur in descending order at the following parameters:

1) too little carbon dioxide (in relationship to 100 % of the measured tank); the pH level should be in the slightly acetic range, depending on the carbonate hardness, in every case.
2) elevated phosphate levels (over 90 %); phosphate limitation by means of JBL PhosEx ultra is often helpful here.
3) too little and too irregular fertilization (there should always be traces of iron at least).
4) insufficient water changes; a weekly water change of over 30 % is recommended for algae problems.
5) not enough fast-growing plants.

Can I use the JBL PhosEx Ultra and JBL NitratEx simultaneously in an internal filter?

In principle, the NitratEx and PhosEx Ultra can both be used at the same time. However, please bear in mind that this reduces the other filter media as colonisation surfaces for the filter bacteria, which may affect the work of the filter in eliminating ammonium and nitrite.

Can I use JBL BioFerm and JBL NitratEx at the same time?

The combined use of both products is not recommended, as BioFerm weakens the effect of NitratEx.
