Perfect for the plant care in freshwater aquariums. Its porous structure promotes the growth of roots. Suitable for digging fish

  • Nutrient buffer with high iron content. Is capable of storing excess nutrients, to release them again when needed. The high iron content is absorbed by plant roots
  • Activates the soil flora by motivating the quick and effective colonisation of beneficial ground bacteria. This inhibits the growth of unwanted algae, reducing the work-load on the filter and ensuring crystal-clear water
  • Accentuates the beauty of the fish: its dark-brown tone highlights their colours and combines with the green and red tones of the aquatic plants to create a harmonious appearance
  • Ready-to-use substrate which needs to be rinsed once in tap water before use. Available in various packaging sizes

Successful plant care:
The natural substrate activates the soil flora and is ideal for plant care. The nutrient buffer with battery effect (releases nutrients until it is depleted and can be reloaded through new fertilisation) is water-neutral and rounded. As a result it is ideally suited for digging fish species, such as cat fish and loaches. Combination with long-term nutrient substrate:
A supplement with JBL ProFlora AquaBasis plus as long-term nutrient substrate with JBL Manado Dark as a covering layer guarantees vigorous and healthy plant growth even for very demanding plants. Use:
Rinse briefly with lukewarm tap water before use to remove any abrasion rubbed off during transport.

FAQs
What is aquarium gravel?

Aquarium gravel is a type of small, round stones or pebbles that are used as a substrate in a fish tank. The substrate is the layer of material that covers the bottom of the tank and provides a surface for plants, decorations, and other items to be placed on.

Aquarium gravel is typically made from a variety of materials, such as natural stone, ceramic, or plastic. It is available in a range of colours and sizes to suit different types of tanks and decorating styles.

In addition to providing a decorative element in a fish tank, aquarium gravel also serves several important functions. It provides a surface for beneficial bacteria to grow, which helps to break down waste and maintain good water quality in the tank. It also provides a place for fish to dig and hide, which can help to reduce stress and improve their overall well-being.

When choosing aquarium gravel, it's important to consider the size and type of fish you are keeping, as well as the overall design and appearance of the tank. Some types of gravel may be too large or sharp for certain types of fish, while others may be too small or fine and may be ingested by the fish. It's also important to wash the gravel thoroughly before adding it to the tank to remove any dust or debris that may be present.
