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. By the way, experts can tell what the catfish eat by its dentition.

Some sucker 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.

Ich bekam die Möglichkeit die neuen Pro Novo Pleco Wafer XL zu testen. Auf der Dose ist ein grüner L200 Wels abgebildet. Daher war ich sehr neugierig und habe sie gleich bei unseren L200 Welsen ausprobiert. Der Wafer sank schnell zum Boden des Aquariums und es dauerte nicht lange da saß bereits der erste L200 mit seinem Maul auf dem Wafer. Wenig später folgten die anderen L200 Welse und es begann eine regelrechte Schlacht am Buffet! ;-)
