Tipo de aquário selvagíneo JBL Rio Pantanal®

Would you like to have a piece of jungle river in your living room? This aquarium shows a beautiful underwater landscape from South America with its typical dwellers, including the neon tetra, which is one of the most colourful little gems of the Amazon region.

A jungle aquarium has to be one of the most beautiful types of aquariums with its wonderful mingling of magnificent plants and colourful fish. The dwarf cichlids demonstrate some interesting behaviour as they care for their brood and the neon tetras and pencil fish display their breath-taking colours. After a running-in time of one to two weeks the plants will start growing, giving your aquarium a jungle character.

Modelled on nature

We named this aquarium “Rio Pantanal® “ because the water in Brazil’s Pantanal is one of the clearest waters in the world. Looking at the fish stock we also could have named the aquarium Rio Negro or Amazon Region. But the water of these rivers either have a white-cloudiness or a deep brown colour.

How to maintain your jungle aquarium

Even if an aquarium involves much less work than keeping a hamster, there are still a few care measures which are essential to the functioning of your jungle aquarium. You will be surprised how little work you need to maintain your aquarium!

Maintenance

Illuminate the aquarium approx. 8 hours during the first 2 weeks, afterwards a maximum illumination of 12 hours is possible. Carry out a 30 % water change every 14 days.

Daily

Check daily whether the technical items are working correctly ( Filtros de aquário e acessórios para aquário , Fertilização de plantas com CO2 e Luz ).

Tratamento de plantas

Please make sure that you add enough CO2 from day one.

Use a complete fertiliser ( JBL Ferropol 15 ml weekly) and a further daily fertiliser ( JBL Ferropol 24 ), which you add into the aquarium in the morning, before switching on the lighting. Start with 50 % of the normal dosage and increase, depending on the plant growth. After 4-5 weeks you can start with the pruning of the plants. Respective to the plant species, regular pruning is needed. If the amazon sword plants become too large, you can remove single leaves at the edge of the rootstock. Often the amazon sword plants discard their leaves after you have inserted them into the aquarium and only then do they develop real underwater leaves. So please have a bit of patience! Please always remove dying or diseased leaves – this can be easily done with long scissors ( JBL ProScape Tool S straight ).

Maintenance time per week

30 minutes.

How often do you need to empty and clean the complete aquarium?

Your JBL Rio Pantanal® can stay healthy and beautiful for many years with the above mentioned care. Redecorating your aquarium after a few years, if you wish, will be no problem.

Alimentação

2-3 x daily as much as the fish can eat in 3 minutes. 1 tablet per day, alternating with other foods.

Special features

Do not position your aquarium in an excessively bright place, because direct sunlight promotes algae growth.

Miscellaneous

The overall layout mentioned is only a suggestion. You can just as easily put the wood at the back of the aquarium on the left for example. But please follow our suggestions when it comes to the fish community and the number and species of the plants.

Water treatment and tests

Tap water is not always suitable for fish. Before fish are added, the aquarium water needs an additional treatment with a suitable water conditioner ( JBL Biotopol ). One hour later, add a bacteria starter ( JBL Denitrol ). Yyou can now add fish. Please check the nitrite content of the water every second day during the first two weeks using the JBL Teste de nitrito NO₂ . You can do further water tests to check in the Análise da água, laboratório online , whether the water is providing optimal conditions for fish, invertebrates and plants.

If you live in a region with hard water you need to adjust your tap water to the recommended values (in aquarium information) by adding osmosis water.

Experiencing the habit up close

A JBL expedition already led us into the Pantanal in Brazil. In our report you can find out what research findings our team has brought along and the many photos will give you an impression about the beauty of this habitat above and under water.

Expedição Brasil

The 5th JBL expedition was quite an event: 14 days Amazonia and northern Pantanal, as well as two days at the southern edge of the tropical marine fauna’s habitat in the Atlantic Ocean!
