Step 1: Preparation

Read here about the first steps you need to take to prepare your aquarium for planting.


- Setting up the aquarium correctly

- Mounting the back panel and filter cover

- Spreading out the ground material


1. Assemble the cabinet if necessary.


2. Set up your aquarium according to the instructions for use.

3. Fit the JUWEL background to your aquarium. To this end, first measure your aquarium vertically and horizontally (only up to the filter). You will find pre-cut edges on the back of the JUWEL background. Use the enclosed saw to cut the background to size. Follow the installation instructions on the product packaging. Use JUWEL Conexo high-strength adhesive to achieve the best possible hold in your aquarium. Apply spots of the adhesive to the background and then carefully place it in position. Repeat the installation process to achieve the optimum installation of the JUWEL filter cover in your aquarium. Please note that the JUWEL background and the JUWEL filter cover will take between 24 and 72 hours to dry.

4. Spread the substrate around the bottom of your aquarium to cover it, e.g. using a brush. Black Soil was used in our example.
