Product information

Water circulation
Aquatic plants grow better in the wild when they have access to seeping nutrition sources. The plants absorb their food from these sources. The gentle undergravel heating causes the warm water to rise and the cold water, full of dissolved nutrients and minerals, sinks to the bottom. This creates a thermal water circulation, which washes the nutrition directly to the roots.

Easy to install
Place the heating cable in even-sized loops on the cleaned bottom panel when beginning to set up the aquarium. Fasten the heating cable with the enclosed suction cups (slotted suction cups). Bring the cold leads of the cable out of the aquarium and connect them to the transformer. The black markings on the cable clearly distinguish the cold lead from the heating cable.

Hazard-free use
The heating cable is silicone coated and works with an energy-efficient 40 W transformer and 24 V extra low safety voltage for hazard-free use. The transformer needs to be mounted in a well-ventilated and splash-proof place. The undergravel heating results in a slight warming of the substrate, but needs a heater thermostat (JBL ProTemp s) for warm water fish.

Time For A Change - Pros And Cons

Think back to your childhood. Your bedroom was a small area for you to let your imagination run free. And unsurprisingly you felt like re-decorating and rearranging it at least every three weeks.

More volts means more power

The undergravel heating cables JBL ProTemp b40 and b60 now come equipped with a 24 volt transformer. The 24 volt version is more reliable than a 12 volt version, as long-term tests have shown.
