JBL carries out active research and undertakes expeditions around the world to the native habitats of ornamental fish and terrarium animals.
All the biotopes encountered on the JBL expeditions are analysed. In aquatic biotopes we carry out water measurements, as well as lux measurements in different depths under water or even current measurements. Because the measurements are carried out at different times and by many participants, this results in useful average values and precludes incorrect measurements. In herpetological research air temperature and their fluctuations over the course of the day are additionally measured. In UV measurements the UVA and UVB are taken separately. Surface measurements are also a main focus of our activities. These enable us to determine how warm stones and other substrates can get when exposed to solar radiation.
We will now explain the three most important research focuses:
