Package contents: under gravel heating cable 10 W for aquariums, incl. electronic transformer, 3.6 m heating cable, 2 x 1.8 m PTC resistor, 20 x suction cups
Aquatic plants grow better in the wild when they have access to seeping nutrition sources. The plants absorb their food from these sources. The gentle under gravel heating causes the warm water to rise and the cold water, full of dissolved nutrients and minerals, sinks to the bottom. This creates a thermal water circulation, which washes the nutrition directly to the roots.
Place the heating cable in even-sized loops on the cleaned bottom panel when beginning to set up the aquarium. Fasten the heating cable with the enclosed suction cups (slit suction cups). Bring the cold leads of the cable out of the aquarium and connect them to the transformer. You can easily recognise the transition between the cold lead and the heating cable by a marking line on the cable.
The heating cable is silicone coated and works with an energy-efficient 10 W transformer and 12 V extra low safety voltage for hazard-free use. The transformer needs to be mounted in a well-ventilated and splash-proof place. The under gravel heating results in a slight warming of the substrate, but should by all means be complemented by a heater (JBL ProTemp s) for warm water fish.
A heater in a fish tank is used to maintain a consistent, appropriate water temperature for the fish and other aquatic life living in the tank. Different species of fish have different temperature requirements, so it's important to ensure that the water temperature in the tank is within the appropriate range for the specific type of fish you are keeping.
In general, most tropical fish need a water temperature in the range of 24-28 degrees Celsius. Coldwater fish, such as goldfish, may prefer water that is slightly cooler, around 20-23 degrees Celsius.
A heater in a fish tank helps to maintain a stable water temperature by using an electric heating element to warm the water. The heater is typically placed inside the tank and connected to a thermostat that measures the water temperature and turns the heater on or off as needed to maintain the desired temperature.
It's important to monitor the water temperature in your fish tank regularly and to adjust the heater as needed to ensure that the temperature stays within the appropriate range for your fish. If the water temperature gets too cold, the fish may become sluggish and inactive, and may be more prone to illness. On the other hand, if the water temperature gets too hot, the fish may become stressed and may also be more prone to illness.
