Product information

Fish love a varied diet
An unbalanced fish diet can lead long term to deficiency symptoms, diseases and fatty degeneration of organs. Provide your aquarium dwellers with a varied died in the form of live food. When catching or purchasing live food there is a risk of introducing bacteria and parasites into the aquarium.

Producing your own live food has many advantages:
• Free of parasites
• Rich in fibre & healthy
• No need to catch in ponds
• Promotes the fish's hunting instinct
• Increases spawning readiness
• Simple, quick and convenient
• Cheap alternative to frozen food
• It’s fun to do it yourself

Easy application
Place breeding container in the stand provided. Fill it with water, add special salt and Artemia eggs (not included) to the container. Close the breeding container. Connect air pump and let it aerate for 24 – 48 hours. Open stopcock at the bottom of breeding container. Breeding water flows through the sieve and separates water from the live food. 1 spoonful of Artemia eggs (JBL ArtemioPur) contains approx. 0.3 g Artemia eggs. 2-3 spoons of Artemia eggs are added to the JBL culture device per batch.

How can I remove the hose from the device?

At first the air hoses and special CO2 hoses can easily be pushed on the connection piece. The hoses harden more and more as the months go on and can only be removed from the connection piece using great force. If you pull the hose hard it will only strain the connection, which could, in the worst case, even break off. Instead cut the hoses you want to remove laterally at the ends and carefully remove them. For this it’s always advisable to install hoses with some reserve in its hose length.

How can I remove the lids of the JBL Artemio sets and the JBL Artemio 1 easily while reducing wear ?

To remove the lid of the Artemio reactor more easily and thus protect the sealing we recommend greasing the lid with JBL Silicone Spray. Thus the lid is easier to remove and the sealing is treated with care.

JBL ArtemioSet, JBL Artemio 3: Why doesn't the water from the breeding reactor flow through the fine sieve?

At the beginning, you may actually find that the water from the breeding reactor is not flowing through the fine sieve. This can happen when

- a fresh, dry sieve is used for the first time,
- a used sieve that has not been rinsed properly is used,
- a sieve that is dried out is used.

Possible remedies:

1) Moisten the sieve on both sides beforehand to remove the air from the pores so that the water can flow through freely. 2) Tap on the underside of the sieve. This contact causes the water to be drawn through the sieve and the effect to spread across the surface of the sieve.

This is due to the sieve's fine structure with a mesh size of 150 µm and the so-called cohesion of the water molecules. Water molecules combine to form larger units (clusters), which is why water is liquid between 0 °C and 100 °C. Otherwise, it would be gaseous. When you have a fine, dry sieve, the cohesion prevents the water from passing through initially, because the pores are still filled with air. By contrast, when you have a moist sieve or have established contact on the underside, a suction effect occurs which breaks up the clusters, thereby permitting water to flow through the sieve.

The reactor of the JBL Artemio Set or JBL Artemio 1 is constantly clogged by a drop of salt. Is that normal?

This only happens when the hose is immersed in the salt mixture that has been added or if the power supply is interrupted for an extended period of time so that the water was able to flow back into the hose.

Tip when using: Before you fasten the lid on the Artemio, turn on the air pump. Then, when the air tube is immersed in the water with the mixture, which may not have dissolved yet, the exiting air will prevent JBL Artemio Mix or JBL Artemio Sal and JBL Artemio Pur from settling in the air tube and forming a salt plug.

The sealing ring on the lid of the JBL Artemio Set or JBL Artemio 1always pops off when I try to put it on.

It is advisable to push the sealing ring behind 2 or 3 of the mount and to then slip the other part onto the guide. Afterwards, pull the sealing ring over each of the two mounts, one after the other. This way, it is then positioned on the guide.

JBL Artemio set contains all parts required to breed artemia nauplii efficiently. Easy to set up this kit with no problem and without any other help. Super easy to set up with the available guidance booklet which is available in different languages. Artemia nauplii are efficiently and economically reared in a specially constructed funnel-shaped breeding container. The funnel shape of the breeding container ensures that no eggs can become trapped in inaccessible corners, ensuring optimum hatching results. You need to wait for 24-48 hours to get the best results. Only use 500 ml water as recommended by jbl experts and also mark on the hatchery jar. You need to shop artemia eggs kit with it. The air pump is super silent. You need to put a soft cloth on the table and place the pump on it which makes it vibration free. This is my trick to use air pumps. Jbl air pump has quality rubber shoes which are perfect. One best things about this hatchery are, you can add more hatchery setups with one pump. No need to add more pumps. Always wash with fresh water after every use. The kits are easy to clean too. Wash carefully with gentle hand... after every use keeps it in the box the so that it stays secure. Thanks jbl team for best product for happy fishkeeping I love it. My son always so excited to start this kit.

Die Anlage läuft und läuft und läuft.

Ich habe vorher schon andere Alternativen ausprobiert, um Artemia zu züchten. Aber tatsächlich ist bei dieser Anlage die Schlupfrate am höchsten. Das kommt sicherlich durch die spezielle Form und die konstante Wasserbewegung, die durch die Pumpe erzeugt wird. Nach 24h Laufzeit bekomme ich schon soviele Artemia Nauplien, dass ich sie kaum alle verfüttert kriege. Der Auslass über den Hahn ist sehr praktisch. Ich spüle die Artemia Nauplien dann mit dem beiliegenden Sieb mit Wasser durch und dann wird verfüttert.

Einzig die Lautstärke der Pumpe hat mich etwas gestört. Ich bin ich dann auf die a100 Pumpe gewechselt. Die ist leiser und man kann auch die Leistung der Pumpe besser regulieren.

S. Klöcker - German

Super Set. Es ist ein Kinderspiel die Eier auszubreiten. Die Pumpe ist recht leise.

K. Buchgeister - German

Läuft bei mir im Dauerbetrieb,

Für die Aufzucht meiner Diskus Fische.

Innerhalb 24-30st. Sind die Nauplien geschlüpft und bereit für die Verfütterung.

Dazu ist das Set super verarbeitet und lässt sich leicht reinigen.

Daumen Hoch!

E. Gautier - French

Very good quality product, easy to use! I recommend

scapeling - German

Ich finde das Set wirklich gelungen. Die Handhabung ist spielend Leicht und die Menge die man hier in kurzer Zeit produzieren kann, gerade wenn man mehrere Aquarien betreibt und entsprechend viele Fische füttern will finde ich großartig. Auch die einfache Erweiterungsmöglichkeit ist echt phantastisch. Einziger Wehrmutstropfen ist die Tatsache das man Artemia ja eigentlich im Licht ziehen solll, aber ich kann euch sagen: das funktioniert auch in der dunklen Abstellkammer, wo einen das Geblubber und das Brummen der Luftpumpe nicht stört. Klare Kaufempfehlung.

D. Zager - German

Super Erfindung

Perfekt zur artemia Zucht

Z. Khawaja - German

Top Produkt

Benutze es seit ungefähr 2 Wochen und kann sagen, dass die Artemia nach ungefähr 24 st bei mir geschlüpft sind.

Für kleinere Fische zu Empfehlen.

S. Tejera Galindo - Spanish

Un set completo, cómodo y sencillo para eclosionar artemia. Siempre he usado otros métodos, pero usar este set con el Artemio mix hace que la eclosión sea bastante cómoda.

M. Rystau - German

Das ist Klasse.

Habe davon schon 3 Stück gekauft das ich mehrere Ansätze habe,

es schlüpfen sehr viel.

Wenn die Artemia geschlüpft sind.

Können die sehr gut abgelassen werden,

durch das Sieb kann das Salzwasser gut trennen von Artemia.

Da hat man wirklich alles dabei, nur das Salz nicht,

aber da ist die Membran pumpe und Luftschlauch dabei,

damit die Eier gut durchgewürbelt werden.

Kann ich auf jeden Fall empfehlen sich zu holen.

fm aqua - German

Ein rundum perfektes Set, meine Fische lieben die gezüchteten Artemien..es geht super schnell, die Schlüpfrate ist überragend & sogar das Design finde ich macht was her! Nur zu empfehlen…die Fische werden es einem danken.

O. Gensing - German

Ich habe das Artemio set und die Erweiterung und bin super zufrieden. Am besten finde ich aber das man die Halterungen aufhängen kann so musste ich nicht extra ein Platz suchen, die Membranpumpe im Lieferumfang bei dem Set hat auch genug Leistung um die Erweiterung ohne Probleme zu betreiben, was ich persönlich noch gut finden würde, wäre wenn es Schnellverbinder geben würde für die Luftschläuche.

J. Le lous - French

J’adore ce produit vraiment top facile à utiliser et très utile pour fabriquer soit même de la nourriture vivante pour nos petit protégés. Je recommande fortement ce kit

aqua_aktiv - German

Ich habe mit dem Set immer Nachschub für meine Nachzuchten die die Artemia Nauplien Dankend annehmen und mit einem schnellem Wachstum belohnen, auch die Färbung der Tiere wird gefördert. Zu dem habe ich mir noch die Erweiterung gekauft.

fm aqua - German

Für den Preis eine absolute 1plus mit Sternchen. Das System und die Trichterform sind super durchdacht.

Wenn die beschriebene Dosierung eingehalten wird, läuft es so gut wie von alleine. Ich hatte nach knapp 24h die ersten geschlüpften Eier...nach 48h waren alle Tiere geschlüpft. Die Fische haben es geliebt!!!!

Nie wieder Leben Futter kaufen...ab jetzt wird von Zuhause gezüchtet :))

aqua_aktiv - German

Wenn man sich an die Anleitung haltet funktioniert es ohne Komplikationen, das Artemia ist schnell geschlüpft daher ist es eine gute Alternative zu Trockenfutter.

G.E.P.P. - French

Super produit : simple et efficace.

En 48h j'ai eu suffisamment d'éclosion pour nourrir mes guppy pendant deux jours.

D. Gehrke - German

Habe die Mischung mit den Artemiaeiern und dem Salz selbst nach Anleitung dosiert und bin von der Schlupfrate überwältigt.

Nach 24 Stunden schwammen nur ein paar ungeschlüpfte Eier an der Oberfläche !!! Also echt Top !

Aufbau des Trichters ist auch sehr praktisch und unkompliziert.

Wie schon vorab öfter schon gelesen, ist die Luftpumpe leider wirklich etwas laut.

Am Besten ein kleines Stück Teppichmuster o.ä. als Puffer zwischen Pumpe und Oberfläche legen - hilft schon sehr !

bennys riff welt - German

barschfan - German

Ich bin begeistert dieses Set ist einfach zu händeln und versteht sich fast von selbst . Der Aufbau ist super beschrieben und dauert ca. 2-3 Minuten. Ich bin bis heute super zufrieden . Tolles Konzept

Discus.forest - German

Ich bin total begeistert. Schnell und einfach Lebendfutter für meine kleinen Lieblinge.

malawi_aquaristic - German

Ich bin mehr als zufrieden mit dem ArtemioSet! Einfach in der Handhabung und dazu optisch ansprechend. Nach nur 24 Stunden habe ich sehr gutes Lebendfutter für meine Jungfische. Besonders gut gefällt mir der untere Auslass mit dem Sieb, wodurch eine einfache Trennung der Artemia Krebse von dem Aufzuchtwasser ermöglicht wird.

Klare Kaufempfehlung!

shrimpscapes_ - German

Was soll man dazu noch sagen?

Rund um Sorglos Paket was JBL da verkauft.

Optisch ansprechend, technisch einwandfrei und einfach zu bedienen.

Meine Tiere erfreuen sich seit dem erwerb dieses Sets täglich an frischen Artemia

aquarium.meer91 - German

Dieses Set ist einfach nur mega !!!

Ich hatte davor ein anderes Set von einer anderen Marke und war absolut nicht begeistert.

Aber bei diesem Set ist einfach alles Klasse. Es sieht optisch gut aus und man kann kinderleicht durch den Ablaufhahn die fertigen Artemianauplien auf das Sieb laufen lassen und hat ruck zuck sein eigenes Lebendfutter.

Außerdem ist die in dem Set enthaltene Membranpumpe sehr leise und kraftvoll.

Ich kann dieses Set nur weiterempfehlen!

_aqua4you_ - German

Sehr einfache Aufzucht von Lebendfutter. Es ist alles hochwertig verarbeitet und lässt sich einfach bedienen. Definitiv weiter zu empfehlen!

A. Lübke - German

Den Behälter selbst habe ich bereits ganz ordentlich bewertet, auch das Sieb ist sehr praktisch, einzig die verwendete Membranpumpe ist nach meinem Empfinden unbrauchbar. Sie ist furchtbar laut und auch ein reklamiertes Austauschgerät hörte sich nach kurzer Zeit wie ein Nadeldrucker an. Ein Blick ins Innere der Pumpe verschafft Klarheit, warum dem so ist.

Comment from JBL:

Hallo Andrea, die Pumpe mit angeschlossenem Schlauch ist leise. Wenn du sie zum Test in der Hand hältst, wirst du es bestätigen können. Du beschreibst eine Resonanzübertragung, die durch das Aufhängen an der Wand oder eine weiche Unterlagen unterbunden werden kann.
