Product information

The group of sucker catfish is quite diverse in its diet: the vast majority of species feed herbivorously on plants and algae. Of these, many species are also wood eaters. However, there are also species, such as the zebra or cactus catfish, which do not eat plants but eat micro-organisms, insects and even dead fish. For these species JBL PRONOVO TAB is the right choice. For all other sucking catfish, JBL PRONOVO PLECO has been developed and is available in two sizes.

Some catfish species will not come out when the light is on. If you then feed food tablets, they will disintegrate and tend to be eaten by the other fish, if they like "green food tablets". In this case it is advisable to feed JBL PRONOVO PLECO AFTER switching off the light. The wafers (chips which are thinner than food tablets) do not dissolve so quickly and retain their consistency until the catfish are active, so that the sucker catfish have to grate vigorously (important for the teeth - no joke!).

What do you do if you keep different bottom dwellers in an aquarium?
Fish also have a sense of taste and refuse food they don’t like. We do not keep ANY bottom-dwelling species, which would experience problems if they ate from a food tablet intended for another species (e.g. loaches). So feed both types of tablets (e.g. JBL PRONOVO PLECO for herbivorous sucker catfish and JBL PRONOVO TAB for carnivorous or omnivorous catfish) at the same time. It is even beneficial for the fish, as they are offered more variety and yet each group of fish gets its species-appropriate nutrition.

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.

Das Wels Futter ist super, das Essen wirklich alle Welse super gerne.

Bekommen bei mir alle jeden Tag.

Das tut sich nicht in Becken verteilen, deswegen ist es super, fals man zu viel Füttert, kann man das super wieder raus holen.

Die Garnelen finden es auch super und versuchen davon was abzubekommen.

Die bekommen es auch manchmal in nur Garnelen Becken von mir Essen.

Auf jeden Fall zu empfehlen zu kaufen.

Buenas pastillas, el punto positivo que tiene es que se disuelven muy poco a poco y n enturbian el agua casi nada. Comen todos los peces de fondo y se les ve muy contentos y saludables. Recomendable totalmente.

Al fin hacen unas pastillas que se disuelven en el agua de forma lenta y sin levantarse demasiado, justo lo que necesitan mis ancistrus para que les de tiempo de comerse todas las pastillas sin que se hayan disuelto por todo el acuario. Los alevines de mis ancistrus también se las comen como locos. Muy recomendable

Meine Ancistrus ,L448 maccum und Red Bruno nehmen diese Taps sehr gut an. Was mich sehr freut ist , dass diese Pleco Taps nicht stauben sodass man keine extremen Staubpartikel im sieht und das ganze Wasser benebelt wird.

Kann ich nur weiter empfehlen .

Meine omnivoren Welse lieben die Pronovo Pleco Wafer. Sie werden immer sehr gierig gefressen. Sehr empfehlenswert

Wir bekamen vor kurzem die Möglichkeit die neuen Pro Novo Pleco Wafer zu testen.

Nach kurzer Überlegung haben wir die Wafer in unserem L236sw und L82 Aufzuchtbecken gefüttert. Die jungen Welse lieben den hohen Pflanzen und Algenanteil in diesen Wafern. Die kleinen Welsen sind über die Wafer regelrecht hergefallen. Wir können sie daher weiterempfehlen!

Ich bin begeistert von den Futtertabletten. Meine Welse waren meistens nicht begeistert von Futtertabletten, doch seit dem ich die JBL PRONOVO PLECO WAFER füttere ist alles anders.

Sie nehmen sehr gut diese Futtertabletten an und sind sehr verfressen. Ich kann sie nur weiterempfehlen!

Seit Oktober 2020 besitze ich Welse.

Ancistrus, Hypancistrus etc.

Viele Futtersorten probiert, viel experimentiert...

Am ende ist sind es doch immer die Novo Pleco Tabs von JBL.

Wenig Ausscheidungen, werden gerne genommen und es bleibt nichts über :-)

Jeder Welsbesitzer kennt das Problem mit den Ausscheidungen.

Bei den Pleco Tabs habe ich die wenigsten Probleme.

PUSH messages from JBL

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). Notifications appear on the end user’s device, just like an app (e.g. for emails) installed on the device.

These notifications enable a website operator to contact its users whenever they have a browser open - it doesn’t matter whether the user is currently visiting the website or not.

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).

Web notifications are part of the W3C standard and define an API for end user notifications. A notification makes it possible to inform the user about an event, such as a new blog post, outside the context of a website.
