Product information

Tubifex are part of the natural diet of many ornamental fish that search the ground for food. The 15-85 mm long Tubifex live in the soil and the blood pigment haemoglobin results in their red colour as long as they live. During the freeze-drying process, the red colour disappears. Unlike live and frozen food, there is no danger of introducing diseases or unwanted bacteria into the aquarium.

The JBL PRONOVO FEX "chunks" float on the water surface because of their buoyancy. The fish can bite off smaller chunks there. Alternatively, the chunks can be pressed slightly in the water so that their buoyancy is reduced.

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).

Food size/mouth size:
It may sound obvious, but it is important that the food size fits the mouth size of the fish. Not all fish are able to bite off larger chunks of food. The fish size to which the food size fits is written on all JBL food tins at the bottom left of the front of the labels.

Toll finde ich hier, dass sich die Würmer sehr langsam aus dem Würfel lösen. So haben die Fische länger etwas davon. Und es macht ihnen Spaß die Würmer nach und nach aus dem Würfel zu ziehen :)

Ein sehr gutes Futter wenn man gerne seine Fische beobachten möchte. Einfach einen Würfel an die Frontscheibe gedrückt und schon bleibt er dort hängen und man kann zusehen wie sich die Würmer langsam lösen und von den Fischen gefressen werden. 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.
