Nutrition for aquarium plants
Healthy plants are important in every aquarium. Plants provide the aquarium with vital oxygen for the aquarium inhabitants, prevent algae growth and remove problem-causing substances.

Healthy plants = healthy fish
Healthy plants prevent algae growth, supply oxygen, remove pollutants, offer hiding places and reduce pathogens.

For the plants to flourish the following demands need to be met:
Light as an energy source for the photosynthesis of CO2, nutrients and trace elements to promote growth.

JBL plant fertilisers supply the plants with all their main nutrients and essential trace elements through the water. This way the plants can absorb all the required nutrients they need over the leaves and roots.

FAQ
How can I remove the hose from the device?

At first the air hoses and special CO2 hoses can easily be pushed on the connection piece. The hoses harden more and more as the months go on and can only be removed from the connection piece using great force. If you pull the hose hard it will only strain the connection, which could, in the worst case, even break off. Instead cut the hoses you want to remove laterally at the ends and carefully remove them. For this it’s always advisable to install hoses with some reserve in its hose length.

Is my SafeStop damaged if I can’t blow through it?

The retaining spring in the check valve fits very tightly and ensures that no water can return. Therefore the air pressure of a diaphragm pump or our breath is not strong enough to open the spring. The valve can be opened by the pressure of the ProFlora bioCO2 systems and also the m and u series. Check valves used in air systems have a smaller counter-pressure and are also part of the JBL range.

JBL ProFlora bio: When does fermentation begin with my BioCo2?

When the CO₂ fermentation begins depends not only on the room temperature, but also on the temperature in the reaction vessel and the starting temperature of the fermentation starter. Fermentation normally begins after 48 h. If CO₂ production still doesn’t occur, as in your case, you could try adding some more of the microorganisms. As an alternative, you can also add approx. the same amount of dry yeast.

How do I clean the reaction vessel of the ProFlora BioCo2 set properly?

It should be washed by hand. The plastic may be damaged in a dishwasher. A washing-up brush, bottle brush or JBL WishWash can be used in addition. JBL PowerClean or BioClean A can be used as a cleaning solution to remove coarse dirt.

Where did my algae come from?

Algae problems in an aquarium can never be traced to just one factor or general condition, and instead, are always the result of a combination of different factors, which include light, fertilization, water changes – specifically, how often and how much – feeding, fish population and, of course, the specific water parameters.

According to analyses that were performed over a course of a number of years, red algae, at least the common brush algae and beard algae, occur in descending order at the following parameters:

1) too little carbon dioxide (in relationship to 100 % of the measured tank); the pH level should be in the slightly acetic range, depending on the carbonate hardness, in every case.
2) elevated phosphate levels (over 90 %); phosphate limitation by means of JBL PhosEx ultra is often helpful here.
3) too little and too irregular fertilization (there should always be traces of iron at least).
4) insufficient water changes; a weekly water change of over 30 % is recommended for algae problems.
5) not enough fast-growing plants.

Fertilization is not just fertilization Part 1

Unlike in natural waters, aquariums with fish mostly have a surplus of nutrients caused by feeding and the resulting fish excrement. Thus nitrates and phosphates in large (often too large!) quantities are available for the plants.
