Product information

Clear aquarium water
Replacing the filter sponge regularly ensures clear aquarium water. The water is perfectly cleaned thanks to the pore size of 30 ppi. At the same time the sponge promotes the settlement of beneficial cleansing bacteria for an ideal biological filtering.

Quality of foam:
Foams used in aquaristics with live animals must always be subjected to a pollutant test, as most plastics release problematic plasticisers into the water. All the plastics used by JBL have passed this test and do NOT release any harmful substances into the water.

Cleaning of plastics:
For many months it is sufficient to rinse the dirty filter sponges under lukewarm running water and then inoculate them with filter bacteria (JBL FilterStart) before using them again. However, as mechanical cleaning NEVER leads to complete cleaning and dirt will remain in the filter sponge, it is recommended you replace the filter sponges about every 6 months.

Inoculating filter material with cleansing bacteria:
Initial colonisation of filter material with cleansing bacteria takes about 1-2 weeks in freshwater and twice as long in seawater. If the filter material was already in use, the time for a "recolonisation" is doubled, as recolonisation does not take place so easily on dead bacterial lawns. The addition of concentrated cleaning bacteria such as in JBL FilterStart shortens the biological start-up time to about 24 hours.
Another reason is to fill the existing settlement space in the filter material with beneficial bacteria so that pathogenic germs find no place to spread. This has now been scientifically proven.

FAQ
How often should you wash out the filter sponges?

The sponges in your internal and external filter are available with fine and coarse pore sizes. They mechanically retain particles such as food remains, faeces, leaves and algae. The bacteria which settle there decompose the substances retained. This means that the filter performance will decrease in time. You can rinse your JBL CRISTALPROFI filter sponges up to twice under lukewarm water (25 °C). Please do not wash too thoroughly, as this will cause the important cleansing bacteria to die off and be lost. The sponges should be replaced after approx. 2 months. When you rinse them, you will find spots where you cannot remove the dirt. This indicates it is time to replace them.
