Product information

Killifish (egg-laying tooth carps):
Many killifish are among the most colourful freshwater fish of all and even beat most marine water fish with their blaze of colour! In addition, they are not very large and thus fit into smaller aquariums. In the wild, many of them are adapted to the cycle of rainy and dry seasons: They hatch from their eggs when the rain starts, grow quickly, lay new eggs and die when the dry season arrives, as the waters usually dry up then. This is why they are also called seasonal fish. In the aquarium we do not have dry seasons, except when the aquarium runs out, and the animals can live a little longer. Most, but not all species, prefer soft and acidic water. By adding peat to the filter (JBL Tormec) and JBL Tropol you can make the water suitable for killifish. In their natural habitats their waters are mostly shallow and temporary. Their only food is small insects that fall on the water surface and insect larvae in the water. JBL PRONOVO KILLI has been designed for this food spectrum. The pachypanchax fish among the killies are usually a little more resilient, but they also eat everything that fits into their mouths, as is usual with panchaxes. They tend to live in the upper water layers, while the other killies populate the middle and lower water layers.

The benefits of prebiotic food:
Prebiotics are "substrates that are selectively used by host microorganisms and confer health benefits." Here, scientists are agreed that they promote digestion and thus health. In the case of our fish, there is another essential aspect: with better digestion, less is excreted and the water is thus less polluted, which causes fewer algae problems and keeps the water cleaner.

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 haben unsere Community zu dem Killifisch Futter befragt, es haben manche ausprobiert und finden es ok bis gut.

samija_aquaristik - German

Wird von meinen Killis sehr gut angenommen, steht bei mir neben viel Lebendfutter auf ihrem Speiseplan.

aqua_aktiv - German

Es wird von den Fischen gerne aufgenommen und gefressen.

scapes_and_more - German

Wenn ich kein Lebendfutter füttere greife ich auf das ProNovo zurück! Meine Apistograma waren am Anfang sehr zurückhaltend doch mittlerweile fressen sie es wie verrückt!

Die Dose ermöglicht durch leichtes oder festes Drücken eine genauere Dosierung. Außerdem kann man die Dose wieder nachfüllen! Top!

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.
