Healthy aquariums with conditions close to nature
The right water values are dependent on the fish stock and plants in the aquarium. Even if the water looks clear it can be contaminated. With poor values diseases or algae can appear in the aquarium. To maintain a healthy aquarium with conditions close to nature it is important to check and adapt the water values regularly. With the JBL Testlab you can determine the 12 most important water values in your aquarium.

Precise measurement of the following values:
pH test: acidity of the water from 3.0 to 10
pH-Test: acidity of the water from 6.0 to 7.6
pH-Test: acidity of the water from 7.4 to 9.0
O2 test: determination of the oxygen content
CO2 test: determination of the carbon dioxide content for thriving plant growth
GH test: determination of the general hardness
KH test: pH stability of the water (carbonate hardness)
PO4 test: determination of the phosphate content (reason for algae growth and plant nutrient)
NH4 / NH3 test: indication of non-toxic ammonium, determination of the toxic ammonia using table
NO2 test: determination of the nitrogen compound nitrite, which is toxic for the fish
NO3 test: determination of the nitrate content (reason for algae growth and plant nutrient)
Fe test: determination of the iron content to monitor the fertilisation
Cu test: deadly heavy metal for invertebrates. Also important for setting the therapeutic dose of medications
SiO2 test: determination of the silicate content (silicic acid) as the cause of algae growth

To determine the CO2 content you just need to measure the pH and KH values. From both values arises the CO2 content in the water, which then can be referenced from the enclosed table.
With our research department and our worldwide expeditions into the habitats of the animals JBL permanently sets new standards with its product innovations.

You can analyse your measured water values in the JBL Online Laboratory free of charge and receive recommendations.

FAQ
I have lost my colour chart. Can I download the colour chart for the test?

The colour cards are not available for download on the JBL homepage. For this a guaranteed true colour print is required, and you need a printer which can be re-calibrated before each printout. Most privately used printers are not accurate enough for this.

We will happily send you a new colour chart bundle with all individual colour charts for the JBL tests free of charge. Please forward the JBL customer service your address.

Why are there no colour charts for the JBL GH test, the JBL KH test, the JBL calcium test Ca and the JBL magnesium test Mg?

The following tests from the test range are so-called titration tests: JBL GH test, JBL KH test, JBL calcium test Ca and JBL magnesium test Mg, where the number of drops are counted until the colour changes and the counted value is multiplied by a value:

GH = number of drops = general hardness in °dH

KH = number of drops = carbonate hardness in °dH

Magnesium + calcium = number of drops * 120 = amount Ca + Mg in mg/l

Calcium = number of drops * 20 = amount Ca in mg/l

Magnesium = amount Ca+Mg from magnesium test - amount Ca in mg/l = magnesium in mg/l

What can I do when the measured value of a water test falls outside the scale?

If one of your measurements reaches the end of the colour chart scale you can multiply the scale, by diluting the following tests with distilled water (e.g. JBL Dest).

Here’s how to do it: dilute the sample with distilled water and carry out the test once more.

Her’s how in greater detail:
JBL GH test kit: Instead of 5 ml use 10 ml aquarium water. Now 1 drop is equivalent to 0.5 dGH.
JBL KH test kit: Instead of 5 ml use 10 ml aquarium water. Now 1 drop is equivalent to 0.5 dGH.

Note: when using 10 ml sample water the colour development is weaker with the first drops than with 5 ml sample water. Put the measuring container on a white underlay for a better readability.

JBL NH4/NH3 Ammonium/Ammonia test kit, JBL NO2 Nitrite test kit, JBL Fe Iron test kit and JBL Cu Copper test kit:
2.5 ml sample + 2.5 ml dist. water: result times 2
1 ml sample + 4 ml dist. water: result times 5
0.5 ml sample + 4.5 ml dist. water: result times 10

NO3 Nitrate test kit, JBL SiO2 Silicate test kit, JBL PO4 Phosphate sensitive test kit and JBL Mg Magnesium test kit freshwater:
5 ml sample + 5 ml dist. water: result X 2
2 ml sample + 8 ml dist. water: result X 5
1 ml sample + 9 ml dist. water: result X 10

JBL PO4 Phosphate test kit koi high range:
2.5 ml sample + 2.5 ml dist. water: result X 2
1 ml sample + 4 ml dist. water: result X 5

JBL K Kalium test kit:
7.5 ml sample + 7.5 ml dist. water: result X 2
3.75 ml sample + 12.25 ml dist. water: result X 5
1.5 ml sample + 14.5 ml dist. water: result X 10

JBL CO2 direct test kit, JBL Ca Calcium test kit and JBL Mg+Ca Magnesium+Calcium test kit:
not required

Which scale applies for my aquarium? My test has two or three control fields with fish and recommendations.

We repeatedly receive questions regarding the symbols on the water test. The hobby areas cannot be clearly assigned to the scales for analysis. There are three symbols to make the hobby areas on the colour charts clear:

Discus = fresh water
Emperor = salt water
Koi = garden pond

In the following, you will find a list which assigns the scale for analysing the results from measurements in the hobby area and explains the symbols: The scales are described from the top to the bottom here.

NO3: salt water, fresh water, garden pond
pH 6.0 – 7.6: fresh water, garden ponds
pH 7.4 – 9.0: salt water, fresh water, garden pond
Fe: fresh water, garden pond

The following JBL tests have a uniform scale for all 2 or 3 hobby areas for analysis of the results from the measurements, as differentiation is no longer necessary:

SiO2
Cu
NH4
NO2
PO4
pH 3-10
O2

The instructions point out that the comparator block should be used to compare the colours. Can this be done without the comparator block as well ? Or is there a factor from this comparison that is required for the measurement ?

The colour charts are intended to be used with the comparator block. In addition, when the comparator block is used with the blank water sample, this compensates the inherent water colour.

Therefore, if the comparator block is not used, there will most likely be deviations in the readings.
