Product information

Nutrition for aquarium plants
Plants provide the aquarium with vital oxygen for your aquarium inhabitants, prevent algae growth, remove pollutants, provide hiding places and reduce pathogens. Plant fertiliser systems with CO2 cylinders supply the plants with the main nutrient CO2 through the water. The plants absorb this and convert it into sugar and oxygen in photosynthesis with the help of light.

Easy to install
The system comes completely ready to connect. Screw the pressure reducer onto the CO2 storage cylinder and connect it by hose to the bubble counter (incl. backflow protection) and then to the reactor in the aquarium. CO2 thus enters the aquarium and is dissolved in the water with the help of the reactor. The CO2 supply can be interrupted at night when a solenoid valve (night switch-off: not included) is connected. The CO2/pH Permanent Test permanently indicates the amount of CO2 dissolved in the water and can then be readjusted if necessary.

Safe
The storage cylinder is TÜV tested. Thanks to the check valve no water can enter the cylinder. The capacity of a CO2 system depends on various factors. The carbonate hardness, the quantity and species of the plants and the strength of the water surface movement are decisive. A 500 g cylinder which is not switched off by a solenoid valve during the night lasts for about 4 months in its default setting. The reusable cylinders can be refilled in specialist shops.

Conversion from disposable to reusable cylinders and vice versa:
All JBL CO2 pressurised gas cylinder systems are compatible with each other. With the reusable system (M system), the union nut of the pressure reducer can simply be unscrewed with an Allen key. The pressure reducer then fits the U system (disposable cylinders).

FAQ
Wird für die Montage des Druckminderers ein Werkzeug benötigt?

Nein, ein Werkzeug wird nicht benötigt und sollte auch auf keinen Fall verwendet werden. Die Verwendung eines Werkzeugs kann zu Beschädigungen führen. Die Montage des Druckminderers an die CO2-Flasche können Sie mit Ihren Händen vornehmen. Drehen Sie nur so weit, bis ein Widerstand zu spüren ist und dann noch etwa eine halbe Umdrehung weiter. So sitzt die Druckregelarmatur handfest. Bei dem Aufbringen der Armatur an Einwegflaschen wird ein kurzes Zischen zu hören sein.

Wird zum Einstellen der CO2 Menge ein Werkzeug benötigt?

Nein, ein Werkzeug sollte auf keinen Fall verwendet werden. Die Verwendung eines Werkzeugs kann zu Beschädigungen führen. An der Spitze des Nadelventils befindet sich ein dünner Dorn. Wird das Nadelventil im Uhrzeigersinn geschlossen und zu fest oder mit einem Werkzeug zugedreht, kann es abbrechen und die Druckregelarmatur beschädigen.

The pressure reducer cannot be removed

Your system is probably still under pressure. Close the cylinder valve and remove the CO2 hose from the pressure regulator fitting. Open the regulating screw and release the pressure still present in the pressure regulator until both pressure gauges show 0 bar. Loosen the connecting nut of the pressure regulator fitting from the cylinder valve.

Is it normal that the working pressure fluctuates minimally and decreases towards the end of the cylinder filling?

Yes, this behaviour is normal. The CO2 is liquefied under pressure in the gas cylinder. At 20° C it is 57 bar. If the content decreases slowly and the temperature drops/rises, it may also have an effect on the working pressure. Check the cylinder pressure, as the cylinder is probably almost completely empty.

May the JBL PROFLORA CO2 products only be used for the aquarium?

Yes, the JBL PROFLORA CO2 products are designed exclusively for use in the aquarium. The gas contained promotes plant growth and works with fine precision so that even the smallest quantities can be supplied to the aquarium. Constant operation and the safety of the fish are thus guaranteed.

Super!!! 5 stars!!! I got the JBL PROFLORA CO2 BASIC SET M , 1,5 months ago and it seems that it was one of the best choices i could make for my plants!

This set is incredibly easy to use, even by new hobbyists who are afraid of using pressurized CO2.

It is ideal for small tanks 40-300L and you can fit it really easily inside your cabinet! *Huge advantage...

Provides the ideal supply for all aquarium plants even for the most difficult ones!!

I can definitely recommend this product, to anyone who wants to have healthy and colourfull aquatic plants!

Super Set für Pflanzenaquarien! Gewohnt hochwertiges Equipment welches sehr einfach zu installieren ist. Für den Co2 Einsteiger ist alles dabei um sein Aquarium mit Co2 zu versorgen. Besonders hervorzuheben ist die Halterung, mit der man die Gasflasche sowohl an der Wand als auch im Aquariumunterschrank perfekt installieren kann.

...

Jetzt kommt das "Aber".

...

Für mich als Aquascaper ist dieses Set ohne Nachkauf von Teilen oder Modifikationen, so nicht optimal.

...

Da ist als erstes eine Nachtabschaltung zu erwähnen. Ich möchte meine Co2 Zufuhr immer über eine Zeitschaltuhr steuern können.

...

Daher ist für mich ein Druckminderer mit Manometer und elektronischen Magnetventil unabdingbar.

...

Alle anderen Teile des Sets sind so wohl für die "normale" Aquaristik und für das Aquqscaping absolut geeignet.

...

Da ich mich für eine Co2 Zufuhr direkt im Filterkreislauf entschieden habe, natürlich ebenfalls durch einen @Jbl.de Diffusor, brauche ich die ebenfalls IM Set Enthalten Teile wie: Blasenzähler und Glasdiffusor nicht.

...

Fazit:

Ein grundsolides hochwertiges CO2-Set mit fast allem was man braucht. Ohne Nachtabschaltung aber zu umständlich. Da könnte definitiv mit einem Magnetventil welches in den CO2 Schlauch integriert werden kann, nach gebessert werden.
