Product information

In the past, almost every aquarium owner caught water fleas in the wild and fed them to their fish. Today this is often prohibited for nature conservation reasons and many waters are now so heavily polluted that it is no longer safe to catch food animals. JBL uses trustworthy suppliers who have legal access to absolutely clean waters with safe water flea populations. The water fleas are preserved by sun drying and packaged immediately after they are caught. In this way, their valuable ingredients and dietary fibres are preserved to benefit the diet of the ornamental fish.

Water fleas (Daphnia): They grow to 1-5 mm in size and belong biologically to the Branchiopoda and thus to the freshwater plankton of stagnant waters. They do not belong to the gammari, which grow up to 2 cm long, look completely different, tend to live in flowing waters and belong to the amphipods. Cyclops, on the other hand, are much smaller (0.5-1 mm) and belong to the copepods.

To expand the diet of ornamental fish, supplementing their main diet with freeze-dried foods is highly recommended. The following types of food are available for this purpose: JBL NOVO DAPH (water fleas), JBL NOVO ARTEMIO (brine shrimps), JBL NOVO FEX (tubifex), JBL NOVO FIL (red blood worms).

flo.to.fish - German

Meine Keifleckbärblinge und Honigguramis lieben dieses Futter. Ich gebe es regelmässig zum "normalen" Futter, um den Speiseplan etwas abwechslungsreicher zu gestalten.

ShrimpPuddle - German

Wasserflöhe sind schon was feines, bei mir wurde das Futter am besten von den Neons, Blutsalmlern, Espes-Bärblingen und wenn mal was auf den Boden kam von den Panzerwelsen angenommen.

S. Tejera Galindo - Spanish

Es una gran idea ya que es otra forma de proporcionar este alimento sin necesidad de estar congelado

diskusowner - German

G.E.P.P. - French

Plus pratique pour la conservation que la nourriture vivante ou congelé.

On peut les imbiber avec les vitamines JBL Atvitol pour une alimentation encore plus riche

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.
