Product information

Ideal nutrition for plants
The right CO2 concentration in the water is of great importance for the aquarium plants. Carbon dioxide is the main nutrient for plants and promotes their growth. Plants use the CO2 for the photosynthesis and thus supply the water with essential oxygen. They prevent algae growth, remove pollutants, provide hiding places and reduce pathogens.

Even enrichment
The JBL diffuser supplies the aquarium water with the main plant nutrient CO2 in even-sized bubbles.

Easy installation
Pull off the lower end cap of the JBL Taifun, remove the hose and put the extension modules in-between. Push the hose through, attach it to lower end cap and re-attach the end cap on extension module. Now your diffuser has been extended by the extension modules.

Effective
The correct amount of CO2 varies from aquarium to aquarium and depends on the volume, the water movement and the planting of the aquarium. You can check the CO2 content by means of a CO2 test.

Technical Data

FAQ
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.

Why don’t the CO2 bubbles dissolve after reinstallation / cleaning?

After reinstallation the bubbles move only haltingly through the diffuser and sometimes merge into large bubbles. The device needs approx. 48 hours to set up! After that a bio-film will have formed on the surface of the device, allowing the bubbles to rise freely upwards. After the running in time the required bubble count will adapt itself for your aquarium.

The clips of the JBL Taifun reactor are broken. What can the reason for this be ?

The clips are made of plexiglass and therefore wear very slowly. Excessive stretching or pulling can however strain the material. It is therefore important to remove the reactor by pulling it forward and not sideways. The breaking of the clips is a sign of over-stretching.

The CO₂ bubbles in the JBL ProFlora Taifun rise very quickly but do not decrease in size much. Large bubbles escape from the top of the Taifun at short intervals.

Please extend the JBL ProFlora Taifun by using extension modules (JBL ProFlora Taifun Extend). Too many bubbles are being added for this reactor and the overall height. The extension extends the reaction path and the CO₂ dissolution improves.
