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 germs.
The JBL plant fertiliser systems supplies 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 the hose coming from the solenoid valve 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.
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).
