Product information

Healthy fish and plants
Fish depend on a suitable surrounding temperature because, as cold-blooded animals, they cannot regulate their body temperature themselves. Cold-blooded animals’ vital functions decrease as the temperatures fall. The right aquarium temperature is vital if they are to maintain their food intake safely and keep their metabolic processes functioning smoothly.
The fish’s ideal surrounding temperature varies according to their origin. The JBL glass thermometer helps you to keep an eye on the temperature.

Precision measuring
The ideal temperature range is marked on the glass thermometer. A suction cup makes it easy to attach inside the aquarium. It floats vertically if not attached.

FAQ
Do the thermometer balls in the JBL thermometers contain mercury ?

No, they don’t contain mercury. Mercury has a melting point of -38,8°C and would be liquid at room temperature.

Neither does the liquid inside the display contain mercury.
