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
