Product information

Animal welfare is important to us
No processing of cheap fish meal, uses fish meat from fish fillet production with the motto: The large fillet for humans and the small fillet for our aquarium fish.
For years JBL has supported the largest international organisation for the protection of sharks “Shark Project”.

Other good reasons to use JBL fish food:
- The use of pure fish protein without cheap fish meal
- Optimal protein/fat ratio
- Mainly proteins from water animals
- Reduction of algae growth and optimum fish growth thanks to adapted phosphate content
- Impressive acceptance on the part of fish: research expeditions with fish feeding trials in the wild
- Very slight vitamin loss due to airtight sealed packaging

Ahead through research
The results of the JBL research expeditions, combined with the expertise of the JBL research and development team, has resulted in optimal and balanced food mixtures made of high-quality ingredients.

Feeding recommendation
Feed 1 – 2 times a day, as much as can be eaten within a few minutes. Young, growing fish 3 – 4 times a day in the same way.

Unopened the food tins can be kept for 3 years, after opening use up within 4 months, since valuable vitamins will deteriorate.
Complements complete food and available separately: supplementary food and treats.

Analytical components
JBL Artemio Mix: There are only very few nauplius larvae, or none at all, hatching in my tank. What am I doing wrong?

A water temperature of 25 °C is ideal for hatching. At room temperature (equivalent to a water temperature of approx. 20-21 °C), it takes up to 36 hours. Try again with 2 instead of 3 spoonfuls of the fermentation starter and reduce the air supply to approx. 50%. On condition that the best-before date has not been exceeded, this should work. An additional lighting source at the start of fermentation can considerably increase the hatching rate.

With reference to the KidsSet: the number of eggs in the KidSet in the salt mixture has been reduced (so that the hatched larvae don't poison themselves with their metabolic end products), and this means that you may not be able to recognise the small nauplii in the KidSet at first sight. Backlight may help to see them better.

Planktonic algae are ideal for rearing the larvae. ArtemioFluid contains a suspension of ultra-fine algae products which the larvae accept as substitute food. A warm, light spot is recommended. If there is a lack of light, especially in the winter, you may want to provide additional lighting, e.g. by using an energy-saving lamp.

How high is the hatching rate of the artemia eggs?

Based on my experience, the actual hatching rate is quite constant within the range of room temperatures, around 90 % for our eggs. The time varies enormously, ranging from 16 h at a temperature of 28 °C to 36 h at 20-21 °C. It isn't until temperatures drop below 20 °C that the hatching rate also drops, and rather quickly at that. Results are best at approx. 25 °C.

The hatching rate depends less on temperature and more so on the eggs used and their origin, where there are distinct differences in terms of both species and years. In some years, the hatching rate is higher, and in others it's somewhat lower.
