Setting up the Aquarium
We have produced your JUWEL Aquarium with the utmost care using most advanced
production techniques. Extra strong packaging has been used to prevent damage to
the aquarium. Please note however, that your aquarium has been transported and
handled several times prior to reaching its final destination. We recommend
therefore, that you test the aquarium for leaks in a suitable area (e.g. garage), by
filling it with water and checking it very carefully.
Having made your checks, you should select the most suitable and desirable position
for your aquarium. The position selected should have an even and level surface and
should be able to support the weight of the filled aquarium. In order to prevent
excessive algae growth, we recommend that you select a position that is not exposed
to direct daylight.
We strongly recommend that the appropriate JUWEL Aquarium cabinet is used. They
have a water-repellent surface and they have been made to match the dimensions and
to bear the weight of the filled aquarium. The cabinet must be positioned on a level
surface. The JUWEL Aquarium is built with a special bottom frame for security. The
aquarium should be placed directly onto the cabinet. DO NOT place any additional
support, e.g. polystyrene, under the aquarium since this is not necessary with our

Setting up your JUWEL Aquarium
In order to set up the aquarium and to prepare it for its intended use, please follow
these steps:
1. Make up the appropriate cabinet.
2. Place the aquarium in its chosen location.
24 h
3. Assemble the JUWEL backgrounds if applicable.
4. Ensure that the filter system is set up according to the instructions as described in
this manual.
5. Place your substrate in the aquarium.
6. Plant the low plant species in the aquarium.
7. Fill the aquarium with water up to half its height and plant the high plants.
8. Fill the aquarium with water slowly to the fill line.
9. Connect the pump and the heater to the power supply.
10. Place the lighting system onto the aquarium and connect the power supply.
You can add a few fish (4-5) after only a few days since you will need some livestock
to start the filter maturation process. The filter can take between 6 and 8 weeks to
fully mature. Should you choose to add further livestock during this period, then this
should be a gradual process.
The JUWEL Bioflow ONE filter
The JUWEL filter Bioflow ONE is a highly effective biological filter system with
components that are harmonized among each other in an ideal manner.
Installing the filter in the aquarium makes hose connections unnecessary and prevents
leaks. The pump output is not negatively affected by hose couplings, intake tubes
The pump capacity is dimensioned in such a manner that the biological filtering is
ensured by a sufficient flow through the filter material in an ideal manner.
The construction of the filter system enables you to quickly access the individual pump
and filter medium components, facilitating comfortable operation while cleaning and
maintaining the filter system.
In addition to this, the JUWEL Bioflow ONE filter system offers the option of
integrating the heater (optionally available).
Commissioning of the JUWEL Bioflow ONE filter
You should make the filter ready for use before setting up the aquarium, but do not
yet connect the electrical components to the power supply.
The JUWEL Bioflow ONE filter is consists of:
- Pump
- Filter housing with slot for the heater (optionally available)
- 2 blue filter sponges - bioPlus fine ONE
- 4 suction cups
- O2 diffuser
Prior to initial use of the filter, open the filter housing and remove the filter sponges,
in order to rinse them out under running water.
Reinsert the filter sponges into the filter housing and close it.
Now, insert the suction cups into the designated openings of the filter housing and
attach the filter in the rear right corner of the aquarium.
Now, attach the O2 diffuser (with assembled air hose and controller) onto the pump
outlet of the pump.
The JUWEL Bioflow ONE filter is now operational.
The JUWEL Aquarium Filter System is a biological filter system. For it to work
effectively, bacteria cultures will need to grow inside the blue sponges. This process
can take up 6-8 weeks for the filter to fully mature. Consequently we recommend to
decorate and plant the aquarium and add just a few (3-5) hardy fish in order to help
the maturation process. Please test the water on a weekly basis to monitor the water
conditions and once the water is safe you can begin to add more fish.
Servicing and maintenance of the JUWEL Bioflow ONE filter
BioPlus fine ONE - Replace one of the blue filter sponges at an interval of approx. 3
Always use original JUWEL Aquarium filter media to ensure the optimum
performance of your system.
EasyFeed - automatic feeder
We offer you the EasyFeed automatic feeder matching all JUWEL aquariums.
It is available from specialist retailers as original JUWEL Aquarium accessory (item No.
JUWEL AquaHeat - Operation and maintenance of the heater
The JUWEL aquarium heater is an essential component of the JUWEL filter system. Its
positioning within the filter housing and consequently in the water stream facilitates
even warming of the water in the aquarium.
You control the temperature of the water via the adjusting knob in the heater head.
You may specify the temperature the heater is supposed to heat the water to in
accordance with your individual requirements. The centre position between "+" and "-"
corresponds to a water temperature of approximately 23 - 26 degrees Celsius or 74-78
degrees Fahrenheit depending on the ambient temperature.
Please note that depending on the starting temperature of the water in the aquarium,
it may take approx. 12 hours and longer until the heater has heated the water to the
desired temperature. After that, the heater will automatically keep the water at the
desired temperature and switch on or off, accordingly. You recognise the operation of
the heater via the red glow light.
We also recommend you to check the temperature of the water by means of a
thermometer at regular intervals. The heater does not require further care or
The JUWEL automatic heater warms the water of your aquarium up to 28°C
depending on a nomal room temperature of 21°C. If you keep your aquarium in
rooms below this or your fish need a higher temperature, we recommend to
purchase a second heater.
Safety instructions:
Only connect the heater once the aquarium is filled with water at least to the
minimum water level of the heater.
Maximum operating depth 80 cm.
Never use the heater outside the aquarium.
Operate the heater indoors only.
Safety instructions:
Always unplug the heater and allow it to cool before removing it from the filter.
Never attempt to open or repair the heater. Any signs of damage or malfunction
and the heater should be replaced with an original JUWEL Aquarium heater.
Never repair the electrical cord or plug. In case of damage replace the complete
Once removed never place on a flammable surface.
JUWEL Digital Thermometer 2.0
To monitor the temperature we recommend the JUWEL Digital Thermometer (Part No.
85702). Available from your JUWEL Aquarium retailer.
Maintenance of the JUWEL Eccoflow 300 pump
The JUWEL Eccoflow pump should be checked and cleaned at regular intervals (at least
once a month).
Please proceed as follows to that end:
1. Disconnect all electrical devices that are operated inside the water from the power
2. Remove the O2 diffuser from the pump outlet.
3. Remove the pump from the filter.
4. Disconnect the adapter (C) from the motor (A), by turning it anti-clockwise.
5. Remove the impeller (B) and the axle with their rubber bearings from the motor.
6. Thoroughly clean all components.
It is necessary to remove the impeller from the chamber and remove deposits and dirt
from the chamber itself as well as the impeller. Using the cleaning brush included with
the pump for this purpose. Otherwise the functionality of the pump will be impaired.
Also check the impeller for damage and possible signs of wear of the magnet.
7. After that, please reinstall the pump in reverse order in the filter. Before you
reconnect the devices that are operated in the water to the power supply.
We recommend that you replace the parts subjected to wear and tear, e.g. the
impeller, axle and the rubber axle holders, adapter, at intervals of approx. 12 months
in order to ensure the optimum function and operating quietness of the pump. Inquire
at your specialist retailer for assistance.
Safety instructions:
Never operate the power head out of water.
Always unplug the power head from the power supply before removing it from the
The power head is intended for indoor use and for use in fluids up to 35°C.
