CO2 High-diffusion reactor • Dissolves CO2 gas in aquarium water without loss. • Suitable for aquariums from 30 cm high to max. 400 litres with 4° KH (to 200 l for 10° KH). • Can be extended for higher hardness levels or larger aquariums. • Operates without additional pumps. • No separate bubble counter required. • Can be completely dismantled, easy to clean (with JBL PowerClean). Product description Extendable CO2 Passive Reactor with maximum diffusion rate of CO2 in water. The modular construction of the JBL ProFlora Taifun reactor allows the reactor to be adapted to practically any size of aquarium with optimum CO2 utilization. The basic version with 10 modules provides sufficient CO2 for aquariums up to 400 l. The JBL ProFlora Taifun extend extension pack with a further five modules increases capacity by an additional 200 l. The special construction of the spiral channel up which the CO2 bubbles rise, with ventilation slits in the sides, ensures complete diffusion of the CO2 into the surrounding water without the need for an additional water pump to create a current. Due to the transparency of the reactor, the bubbles can be clearly observed as they rise, allowing the optimum amount of CO2 to be set even without a bubble counter.

Installation • First thoroughly rinse the reactor in lukewarm water. Do not use detergents. • Fit the reactor vertically in the aquarium in a location with a slight current of water. The upper edge of the device should be at least 2 cm under the surface of the water. • Connect the CO2 hose to the pressure regulator and let a few bubbles run through the device. • At first the bubbles will flow intermittently through the spiral bubble channel from the bottom to the top. The device needs approx. 48 hours to run in. After this time a bio-film will have formed, allowing the bubbles to rise freely upwards
