Nutrition for aquarium plants Plants provide the aquarium with vital oxygen for the aquarium dwellers, prevent algae growth, remove pollutants, provide hiding places and reduce pathogens.
They absorb this through their leaves. Easy to install The system comes completely ready for connection. Screw the pressure reducer onto the CO2 storage cylinder. Connect the pressure reducer with the hose to the diffuser in the aquarium. The CO2 enters the aquarium and is dissolved in the water by the diffuser. The CO2 supply can be interrupted at night by adding a solenoid valve not included.
Thanks to the check valve no water can enter the cylinder. The enclosed stand prevents the cylinder from falling over. 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 g cylinder which is not switched off by a solenoid valve during the night lasts with its default adjustment for about 4 months. The cylinder pressure of 50 — 60 bar, depending on the room temperature, remains constant until the cylinder is almost completely empty. The easiest method is to weigh your CO2 cylinder incl. This way you will know the exact tare weight of your CO2 cylinder with its attachment parts at any time.
If you forget it you can read the tare weight on the CO2 cylinder stamp marking at the neck of the cylinder and add 0. Owing to a production fault a green colour change may not occur with the batches and , despite increased CO2 supply. Should you have one of the above mentioned batches, you can request a new refill set free of charge upon presentation of the sales receipt and a photo of the batch number. If the pH value is subject to greater fluctuation, this indicates a source of interference through another electronic device.
Ballasts in light bars, for instance, create an electromagnetic field if they are not shielded against interference. This can disturb the sensitive sensor.
When you unplug the power plug from the outlet the pH value suddenly stabilises. You can carry this process out with every electrical device in the aquarium to find the cause. Through the use of separated power-carrying cables further disturbances can be avoided.
Separating electrical circuits may also prove to be an advantage. Should another technical item disturb your pH control, then it is not electromagnetically shielded according to this technical standard. If the error still persists try removing the temperature sensor from the controller.
If the value now remains stable, the temperature sensor may be defective. The excess water is normally pressed out of the system again during the day. When the electromagnetic valve in the controller is switched off, the pressure in the entire system from the cylinder to the pressure reducer and the tubes and to the electromagnetic valve persists. When the valve is opened, the pressure in the system escapes first and then the system continues to operate as usual. In our new pressure reducers, this can be done with an Allen wrench under the black cover top.
The rapid drop in the cylinder pressure shortly before the end of the charge does not constitute grounds for complaint, and instead, is normal and unavoidable from a technical standpoint.
Reason: The cylinder is filled approximately halfway with liquid carbon dioxide. This means your system is functioning normally. A room of 20 m2 4 m x 5 m and a ceiling height of 2. Carbon dioxide is heavier than air and collects at the bottom under calm conditions.
The gas would be 1. Then, correspondingly, 4 times higher with 2 kg. Accordingly, no excessive danger is associated with carbon dioxide compressed gas systems for aquariums. Normally, nothing will happen if you do, as the cylinders are constructed to withstand pressures up to bar, but the bursting disk may burst, thereby causing all the gas to escape. In this case, do not touch the cylinder without hand protection, as the cylinder becomes very cold due to the drop in pressure.
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. However please note the following restrictions. Some larger-sized cylinders are not approved for non-stop operation with pressure reducers and you will lose your warranty claim if you use such systems.
It should be installed as the last element before the reactor and with the tip of the arrow pointing to the reactor JBL Taifun. A slight excess pressure develops between the pressure reducer and the solenoid valve when the solenoid valve is turned off. It then escapes all at once when the valve is opened. This can be prevented by doing the following: 1 Select the shortest possible length for the hose connection between the pressure reducer and JBL pH Control 12 V. Fertilise regularly after the water change, e.
If necessary add a daily dose of Ferropol If algae promoting nutrients especially phosphate are present in higher quantities, use JBL PhosEx ultra to keep them under control. Most important is carbon dioxide. Beard and brush algae are always a sign that there is too little carbon dioxide in the water. If a CO2 system is in use, increase its dosage. Put in fast growing stem plants as nutrient competitors. If there is strong current, reduce it slightly. This test must be renewed every 10 years, with the bottom of the cylinder and the valve sealing and threaded joint being tested.
Other symptoms are headaches, discomfort and ringing in the ears. This may lead to cramps, fainting, apnoea and death from suffocation. This is equal to One mol of a gaseous substance has a volume of As a result a corresponding but very low CO2 content occurs too.
BUT this low CO2 content is far too low to for most aquarium plants to thrive. The aquarium owner is therefore dependent on an additional CO2 supply by a CO2 fertiliser system. The higher CO2 content this achieves is reduced or, as commonly referred to in aquatics, expelled by the aeration and strong current. Therefore well planted aquariums should only be slightly aerated at night, if required.
CO2 fertilisation for aquariums has never been explained more simply or more understandably! Based on our own experience in customer service and the many messages and questions we receive, we have put together the typical mistakes beginners may make. The JBL plant care concept leads to vigorous and healthy growth even with the most demanding aquatic plants.
Below you will find an outline graphic with examples to explain the structure and interconnections of all the CO2 components. Have you ever had the chance to see how big the difference really is between a plant aquarium with and without CO2 fertilisation?
Then you can win an exclusive test model. Social stands for online marketing and social media. Escape means a way out of our fast moving digital lives and a way into another world. A balancing haven of peace and relaxation. The discussion, whether aquariums also work without CO2, is as old as modern aquatics itself. One thing is clear: aquatic plants need carbon for their growth. The health of your animals but also of you, the aquarium owners is our number one priority.
A lot of aquarists are talking about liquid CO2, which is said to be able to replace a conventional pressurized gas system or a bio-CO2 system. Carbon dioxide is the nutritional basis for aquatic plants which is supplemented through micro and macronutrients and light.
The balance between all these elements is necessary for thriving plant growth in the aquarium. Adding a nutrient which already exists in abundance does not influence the growth. 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! Last weekend the final of the aquarium design competition HannoverScape took place. Together with the organizer of the event we now would like to present the final placements. This is the time I relax and wind down after a long day.
