JBL ProScape Volcano Mineral is a highly porous volcanic rock for aquaria.
If you plan on placing heavy stones and pieces of driftwood onto your substrate you are often faced with the problem that their weight makes them sink into the substrate or destabilizes them. This makes the entire layout unstable, and pieces of decoration may even topple over. Pro aquascapers use JBL Volcano Mineral to construct a basis for these pieces under substrates like soil, which props up stones or heavy pieces of driftwood. As every substrate will even out after some time due to physical reasons, a maximum angle of 45 ° is realistic.
JBL ProScape Volcano Mineral also ensures a good water circulation inside the substrate and it contains valuable nutrients, minerals and trace elements. Besides calcium, magnesium and potassium, it also has trace elements like iron, boron and manganese. These minerals and trace elements supply your plants with everything they need for forming a strong root system. The result: strong, healthy plants that remain well for a long time.
• ideal as a basis for supporting heavy decoration and as layer under soil and gravel substrates
• porous volcanic rock ensures a good water circulation inside the substrate
• rich in valuable minerals and trace elements
• its highly porous structure provides beneficial microoganisms with favorable conditions and enhances the oxygen supply inside the substrate
JBL recommends a layer thickness of around 2-4 cm as a basis. For further improving the effect, JBL recommends to sprinkle JBL Volcano Powder evenly over the layer of Volcano Mineral, as its powdered form makes the nutrients even better available for the plant roots. As uppermost layer, the substrate you desire to use is spread (e.g. JBL ProScape PlantSoil).
Do not use JBL ProScape Volcano in combination with fine sands (like JBL Sansibar Sand). The fine sand would enter the free spaces between the granules and thus the substrate would become very compact and lose its positive effects.
Do NOT rinse before use as you would lose important nutrients, minerals and trace elements.

Question to this product
JBL :: ProScape Volcano Mineral, 9 l
Sehr gutes Produkt. ???? Wir sind voll und ganz zufrieden ????
Ich verwende das Volcano Mineral als erste Grundschicht unter dem eigentlichen Bodengrund.
Durch die zugeführten Mineralien, bilden die Pflanzen(ich verwende nur inVitro) viel schneller ein gutes Wurzelwerk und meinem Eindruck nach, hilft es ihnen auch noch bei der Umstellung zu submers.
Sie sehen dadurch von Anfang an viel gesünder aus und es gibt nicht die typischen Umstellungserscheinungen.
