The JBL ProSilent Tube is a flexible quality silicone tubing with a diameter of 4 / 6mm and is used by air-powered consumers in the aquarium.
The operation of an aquarium always requires the use of different hoses. JBL offers hoses for every application in high quality and in various sizes and colours. The JBL Pro Silent Tube by JBL is made of a silicone-like material and has an extremely long life. It is not suitable as a CO2 hose because the CO2 would diffuse through the hose.
The gas exchange in the aquarium takes place mainly via the surface movement of the water, in which atmospheric oxygen is introduced into the aquarium water. However, some factors significantly reduce the oxygen content in the aquarium: rising temperatures, lack of CO2 nighttime shutdowns, medications, and more.
In aquariums with little surface flow, a shortage can quickly develop here. The plant mass is also crucial: even if many plants produce vital oxygen during the day, they also exhale carbon dioxide at night because they do not undergo photosynthesis without light. Especially here, the use of an air pump can be advantageous to avoid unnecessary permanent pH fluctuations overnight, with which most fish additionally get considerable difficulties. Due to the resulting water movement, the (excess) CO2 is actively expelled and atmospheric oxygen enters the aquarium water.
