To increase of the CO2 concentration, you can find fertiliser systems under CO2 plant care . You have the choice between bio-CO2 systems ( PROFLORA Bio ), which produce CO2 by means of a sugar-yeast fermentation and systems with pressurised gas cylinders, filled with CO2 ( Disposable (u) or Refillable (m) ).
As soon as your plants receive the right light, the photosynthesis process starts. As a result carbon dioxide (CO2) is combined with water to make nutrition (sugar), releasing oxygen (O2) as a by-product. This way CO2 serves the plants as their main food. Further fertiliser, such as JBL PROFLORA Ferropol or JBL PROFLORA Ferropol 24 can be compared to the vitamins and trace elements humans need to survive, no matter how much fats, carbohydrates and proteins (corresponds to CO2 for the plants) we eat.

This table shows you: firstly how much CO2 is dissolved in your aquarium water, and secondly which CO2 content is ideal for your plants. To use the table you need the pH value and the carbonate hardness of your aquarium water. These two values will give you a CO2 content which is easy to read off. For example, if your pH content is 7.4 and the KH is 6 °dKH, you have 7 mg/l CO2 in the water. However most aquatic plants need slightly higher CO2 levels between 14 and 23 mg/l for vigorous and healthy growth. Very sensitive species even need up to 23 – 36 mg/l. With the help of a CO2 fertiliser system you can then increase the CO2 content in the water and thus at the same time provide the perfect pH value for your fish.
These systems contain the plant nutrient carbon dioxide (CO2) in a pressurised gas cylinder, which you can just replace when empty.
Bio-CO2 systems produce the plant nutrient carbon dioxide (CO2) through a biological reaction process, in which (in simple terms) yeast reacts with sugar. The reaction components can be replaced after about 40 days.
