Product information

Nutrition for aquarium plants
Plants provide the aquarium with vital oxygen for the aquarium dwellers, prevent algae growth, remove pollutants, provide hiding places and reduce pathogens. The JBL plant fertiliser system supplies the plants with the main nutrient CO2 through the water. They absorb this through their leaves.

Easy to install
The system comes completely ready for connection. Screw the pressure reducer onto the CO2 storage cylinder. Connect the pressure reducer with the hose to the diffuser in the aquarium. The CO2 enters the aquarium and is dissolved in the water by the diffuser. The CO2 supply can be interrupted at night by adding a solenoid valve (not included).

Safe
The storage cylinder is TÜV tested and is equipped with an overpressure relief. Thanks to the check valve no water can enter the cylinder. The enclosed stand prevents the cylinder from falling over. The capacity of a CO2 system depends on various factors. The carbonate hardness, the quantity and species of the plants and the strength of the water surface movement are decisive. A 500 g cylinder which is not switched off by a solenoid valve during the night lasts with its default adjustment for about 4 months.

FAQ
How do I know that my CO2 pressure gas cylinder still has gas in it?

The cylinder pressure of 50 – 60 bar, depending on the room temperature, remains constant until the cylinder is almost completely empty. The easiest method is to weigh your CO2 cylinder incl. bracket when it is completely empty. This way you will know the exact tare weight of your CO2 cylinder with its attachment parts at any time. If you forget it you can read the tare weight on the CO2 cylinder (stamp marking at the neck of the cylinder) and add 0.5 kg for the safety bracket. A full m500 CO2 cylinder with security bracket weighs according to that tare + 1 kg (0.5 kg bracket + 0.5 kg filling) – a m2000 tare + 2.5 kg (0.5 kg bracket + 2 kg filling).

Bluish discolouration despite increased CO2 supply

Owing to a production fault a green colour change may not occur with the batches 1000 and 1001, despite increased CO2 supply.

Should you have one of the above mentioned batches, you can request a new refill set free of charge upon presentation of the sales receipt and a photo of the batch number. Please contact our customer service under: https://www.jbl.de/support/

Is it bad if water runs into the bubble counter?

If water runs back into the bubble counter, that’s not a problem as long as the water is not drawn towards the night time shut-off from there. The excess water is normally pressed out of the system again during the day.

JBL pH-Control: When the appliance is connected and switched on, there is often a pulse-like formation of enormous bubbles at the CO₂ - air stone, so that the fish become frightened. Afterwards, the desired formation of bubbles is present again. When the electromagnetic valve in the controller is switched off, the pressure in the entire system from the cylinder to the pressure reducer and the tubes and to the electromagnetic valve persists. When the valve is opened, the pressure in the system escapes first and then the system continues to operate as usual.

When the electromagnetic valve in the controller is switched off, the pressure in the entire system from the cylinder to the pressure reducer and the tubes and to the electromagnetic valve persists. When the valve is opened, the pressure in the system escapes first and then the system continues to operate as usual.

You can decrease / prevent this by reducing the operating pressure in your pressure reducer. In our new pressure reducers, this can be done with an Allen wrench under the black cover top.

Is the carbon dioxide in compressed gas systems dangerous ?

500 g of carbon dioxide are equivalent to 11.36 mol (1 mol of carbon dioxide weighs 44.01 g).

1 mol of an ideal gas occupies 22.4 l volume under normal conditions (normal air pressure and temperature), which means the following for 500 g of carbon dioxide:

11.36 x 22.4 l = 254.48 l.

A room of 20 m2 (4 m x 5 m) and a ceiling height of 2.5 m contains 50 m³ of air, which is 50,000 l.

Carbon dioxide is heavier than air and collects at the bottom under calm conditions. The gas would be 1.27 cm above the ground with 500 g of carbon dioxide.

Then, correspondingly, 4 times higher with 2 kg.

When the CO₂ is mixed with the air in the room, 254.48 l of carbon dioxide correspond to a concentration of 0.5 % of carbon dioxide with 50,000 l room volume of a room with a size of 20 m2 and a standard ceiling height, which is in the range of the maximum work place concentration for an 8-hour working day.

Accordingly, no excessive danger is associated with carbon dioxide compressed gas systems for aquariums.

Nevertheless, a few points should be observed when dealing with a compressed gas system:

1) Please be aware that the compressed gas cylinders must undergo a TÜV test regularly every 10 years.

2) Rusty cylinders, especially with rust near or on the bottom, should no longer be used, even if they have a valid TÜV mark.

3) Do not store the compressed gas cylinders in the sun, as this causes the internal pressure to rise. Normally, nothing will happen if you do, as the cylinders are constructed to withstand pressures up to 200 bar, but the bursting disk may burst, thereby causing all the gas to escape. In this case, do not touch the cylinder without hand protection, as the cylinder becomes very cold due to the drop in pressure.
