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 is ready for connection, except for the CO2 cylinder, which is not included. 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 diffuser in the aquarium. CO2 thus enters the aquarium and is dissolved in the water with the help of the diffuser. 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.

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 recyclable CO2 disposable cylinders can be purchased individually or in a cheaper 3-pack.

The pressure reducer included fits both the JBL refillable cylinders (M system, thread type W21.8x1/14) and the JBL disposable cylinders (U system, thread type M10x1).

Technical Data

FAQ
Do you need a tool to assemble the pressure reducer?

No, a tool is not required and should not be used under any circumstances. The use of a tool can lead to damage. You can mount the pressure reducer on the CO2 cylinder with your hands. Turn only until you feel resistance and then turn about half a turn more. This way the pressure regulator fitting is hand-tight. A short hissing sound will be heard when attaching the fitting to disposable cylinders.

Is a tool needed to adjust the CO2 quantity?

No, a tool should never be used. The use of a tool can lead to damage. There is a thin spike at the tip of the needle valve. If the needle valve is closed clockwise and turned too tightly or with a tool, it may break off and damage the pressure regulator.

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.

How a CO2 fertiliser system works

With the help of a CO2 fertiliser system you can increase the CO2 content in your aquarium water and lower the pH value. You have the choice between a "Bio-CO2" system and a CO2 fertiliser system with a pressurised gas cylinder.

What factors lead to perfect plant growth?

Vigorous and healthy plant growth in the aquarium is of course never based on just one factor. It is always the interplay of light, heat, fertiliser and the main nutrient carbon dioxide (CO2).
