Product information

In community aquariums with different species of fish, the ornamental fish you keep will have different demands on the food. JBL PRONOVO BEL takes the different feeding types into account and offers your fish a wide variety and choice for a natural and healthy diet. If you wish to further enhance the range of foods available, you can supplement the staple food JBL PRONOVO BEL with other foods from the JBL species concept and with treats.

JBL PRONOVO BEL staple food, the perfect nutrition for all omnivorous fish and fish communities
The protein/fat ratio of 6.3:1 exactly represents the ratio that is ideal for most tropical fish species. Higher fat contents would lead to fatty degeneration in the organs of warm water fish (23-30 °C)! In fish communities, as in most community aquariums, the 15 main ingredients of PRONOVO BEL form a perfect nutritional base that can (but don’t have to) be supplemented with species foods to individually adapt and further diversify the diet of your fish species. It’s no problem if, for example, your bettas also eat the food for your barbels and vice versa. It is only important that you offer the right food for each group of fish. Variety is always good!

It is really important to choose a food size that fits the mouth size of the fish species. Flakes soften quickly and can be eaten by almost all fish species. It is a different matter with granulate, where the smallest mouth size of the fish you keep decides which food size you buy. You’ll find the fish size the food is suitable for written on the bottom left of the tins. It is better to choose a food that is on the small side rather than one that is too large!

Regarding garlic: Fish, of course, are not familiar with garlic from their habitats. But observations we made during the JBL expeditions in the South American Pantanal showed that fish reject underwater plants and prefer to jump out of the water to eat the apparently tastier leaves of the bushes and trees at the water's edge! These contain more flavour than the "slimy" underwater leaves. This is exactly the effect that adding garlic achieves.

Why is squid meal included in a freshwater food when there are definitely no squid in freshwater? High-quality squid meal (as a highly digestible animal protein source) offers a nutrient composition typical of molluscs, which many fish are familiar with from natural foods such as clams and snails. Squid meal, therefore, is a very healthy and energy-supplying raw ingredient, also for freshwater fish!

FAQ
How long does the food keep after opening?

Please ensure you buy a packaging size suitable for your aquarium/terrarium/pond so that the quantity contained is used up within 4 months. Compare it with a tin of biscuits lying around for several months. When properly stored they are not necessarily soggy, but they are not quite as tasty as when the packet was opened. Therefore it is not advisable to use the food after this time.

The repeated opening and closing of the packaging brings the food into contact with bacteria and humidity over a longer storage period. Thus the quality of the premium food reduces continuously and this influences the vitamin content and the freshness of the food. For the benefit of your animals you always should feed them fresh food.

Wir sind genauso überzeugt von den Novo Bel Flakes M, wie unsere Community.

Das Knoblauch mit in dem Futter vorhanden ist, macht es für die Fische noch interessanter wie es ohnehin schon ist.

Unser Fazit mithilfe unserer Community ist die Fische mögen dieses Futter wirklich gerne

Good quality "dry" fish food. I'm feeding my small tetras (neon and black ones) as a complement and it's highly accepted without any problems. Highly recommended

El dispensador de la tapa es ideal para los que siempre nos pasamos o no llegamos con la comida, tamaño de grano perfecto y composición de la comida perfecta. Que sea un prebiotic con ajo es perfecto para prevenir que nos salgan algunas enfermedades en el acuario. Recomendable

Ich nutze die JBL pronovo bel flakes, da es sich im Gegensatz zum Granulat gut im Aquarium verteilt. Ich wollte das Futter ja schon vor Monaten probieren, da war diese Sorte aber nur in diesen probiertüten verfügbar. Jetzt habe ich erstmal eine 250 ml Dose zum Probieren genommen und die Fische sind schon sofort dran gegangen, weswegen ich mir mit einem weiteren Produkt, noch eine 250 ml Dose bestellt habe. Ich bin also mit dem Futter mega zufrieden.

What are PUSH messages? As part of the W3C standard, web notifications define an API for end-user notifications that are sent to the user's desktop and/or mobile devices via the browser. Notifications appear on the end devices as they are familiar to the end user from apps installed on the device (e.g. emails).

To be able to send web push notifications, all you need is a website with a web push code installed. This allows brands without apps to take advantage of many of the benefits of push notifications (personalised real-time communications at just the right moment).
