Product information

Revolution in fish nutrition
Every fish lives off the plankton passing by in its natural habitat. JBL has managed to preserve pure arctic plankton straight after the fresh catch without using any artificial preservatives. That’s how fresh plankton can be fed to aquarium fish.

Further reasons to use JBL PlanktonPur:
High quality and gentle processing.
High liquid portion of 80 – 90% remains in the plankton.
Avoidance of preservatives but nevertheless preserved by means of heat process.
Up to 100% higher survival rate in fish breeding.
Up to 100% higher growth rate in juvenile fish.
A 3.5 times higher stress tolerance.
Enhancement of colour and well-being of the fish.
A 50% reduction of unwanted pattern in colouration.
An 18 times reduction of the bacterial density of the dangerous Vibrio species, compared to food enriched with Artemia nauplii.

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 x daily with one stick. 2 g sticks supply an aquarium with up to 200 l.

Unopened the sticks can be kept for 3 years. Choose the size of the sticks (S or M) in accordance with the above stated consumption.

FAQ
How do I feed PlanktonPur properly?

There is one simple way to feed PlanktonPur which solves all problems: simply open the stick, hold it upside down in the current in front the filter outlet and repeatedly press out its contents. The opening of the stick is under water so it should empty completely and be distributed in the current.

I have an unpacked stick – what can I do with it?

We recommend you feed the stick as one portion. The unpacked stick is not intended to be stored. In case the feeding had to be interrupted, the open stick needs to be stored cool (4 – 7 °C) in an airtight container. The unpacked stick may not be stored longer than 24 hours. Check, before feeding it again, whether it still retains its distinctive product-specific smell. If not, the stick has possibly gone off and needs to be disposed off before it can harm the aquarium dwellers.

What does “S” and “M” on PlanktonPur refer to?

S and M refer to the size of the food contained. No distinction is intended between the freshwater and saltwater range. Both products are optimally suited for both freshwater and saltwater.

Can I feed a single stick over several days?

1 stick = 1 meal for your fish.
We have optimally adjusted the food quantity in the sticks to the daily portion of the appropriate and stated tank size.

Do I have to store PlanktonPur in a cool place?

No, due to the special manufacturing method and the single wrapping of the sticks it is possible to store PlanktonPure without any loss in quality at room temperature.
