JBL ProAir a50
- For a reliable oxygen supply in aquariums: ready-to-install diaphragm pump with check valve and air stone - 50 l/h air outlet, > 160 mbar head pressure, 2.3 W power consumption.
- Easy to install: connect pump with air hose and air stone, mount pump outside aquarium, place air stone in the aquarium.
- Noise suppression air chamber, reinforced housing wall, vibration dampening rubber feet.
- With a device for hanging, GS tested, 2.3 W and 50 l/h air output, > 160 mbar air pressure.
- Package contents: air pump for aquariums from 10 - 50 l, 2 m air hose, air stone and check valve to prevent water backflow.
- An air pump for aquariums is an advantage during the night since plants need light to produce oxygen.
- In thinly planted aquariums the air pump supplies the necessary water circulation.
- In aquariums with dense planting the air pump provides the aquarium with oxygen at night, since the number of plants means the oxygen concentration can drop to a dangerous level.
- When disease is present in the aquarium the air pump increases the oxygen level in the water, an essential condition for many medications.
Simple to connect:
- Connect hose with air pump.
- Cut air hose and insert check valve.
- Cut the remaining hose to the desired length.
- Connect one end with check valve and other end with air stone.
- If possible mount the pump on the wall next to the aquarium. Hook for hanging up attached.
Does the use of bubble stones and a strong current expel the important plant nutrient, CO2, from the water?
> During aeration and/or when there is a strong current, a gas equilibrium is achieved between the ambient air and the water. 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.
