JUWEL RIO 180 LED | Der Test | Unboxing and Setup ? ?

Hello aquarists, my old Juwel is disusedI need a new one, So here's my new Juwel .

.

.

the Rio 180 LED With a sbx base cabinet, 3 doors, almost a meter wideand made for up to 500 kilograms The aquarium is just as wide as the cabinet, holds about 180 liters of waterand includes a Bio filter system, heater and LED tubes.

In addition, here are some goodies, more on that later, now it can finally start, here with the first package Feet, -Door stopper, hinges, screws, .

.

.

everything in here.

Here you see letters on the bags, You must pay attention to this when assembling the doors, otherwise you spend more time adjusting the doors than with the complete construction, like me On the plates themselves weresome packaging residues as you see here, not so bad.

.

.

with your finger or even better with a damp cloth, everything can be removed without leaving a trace .

.

.

.

.

.

but enough blabbering the lower cabinet is built up now Sooooo that's it .

.

.

already done .

.

.

went better than expected, what strikes me firstthe doors have no handles anymore .

.

.

.

.

.

and are opened or closed by pressure, that makes me skeptical at first glance even if it looks good, That's why I test here the doorstop in detail.

.

.

.

.

.

and in retrospect I can sayThe door mechanism has gripped reliably every time.

What I think what’s cool also is the well-proven robustness of the material, if you cannot find the screw like me then at least not all the look is messed up, of course, I exaggerate, but great damage has not occurred.

The base cabinet should be able to withstand 500 kilogramsOK… I do not weigh 500 kilos, but I jumped 5 times and what can I say, the cupboard held.

The edges are consistently clean.

The finished base cabinet you see here, shockproof, scratch-resistant, water repellentand with reliable door mechanism And now it's timetime for the second package Light, Filter, heaterall inclusive The aquarium is provided with a frame at the bottom and top and has a corpus for the filter and the heating element Here a lot of filter material for the bio filter system, future home for countless bacterial cultures, you already heard about in my other videos -7W pump 600l / h, -200W heater, -Cover, brush, odds and ends -and very important, of course, the instructions for use on CD There is no mat between the cabinet and the aquariumthe aquarium is framed, we already know that.

A Word about the stickers on the glass .

.

.

yes they are decorative, can be removed without residue also, but, you see here, it’s really hard to get rid of them… Here on the cover it works betterfor example on the lid for the automatic feeder, you can buy this optional Further back there is the clown fish hole, for those of you who hold clown fish The red transport stabilizers for the cover should be removed .

.

.

sure, of course…nothing easier than that What I positive noticed here, the mid cover is made out of one piece, nothing has to be plugged, so nothing can be lost Unusual at first glance, I found the labels in the aquarium, at a closer look, you recognize, that they are attached behind the glass Here we can already see the DAY and NATURE tubes, Although they look like normal fluorescent tubes they are based on LED technology.

Sealed with red rubber and a screw cap, it is suitable for wet rooms as you know The corpus for the pump and the heater is anchored just like the framein the aquarium firmly.

There is a lot of space for our filter media and the heater.

Here is something very importantwhat you should always consider when you buy an aquarium The gluing of the glass, Here you see 1a seams glued by the expert Of course, you also want to see how I set up my new Juwel, So here is the compilation I glue the back wall quickly.

.

.

.

and off you go.

The natural stone you see here, I have taken from a dried up stream You see up herethat's where I found the stones .

.

.

.

.

.

brushed afterwards, boiled and scrubbed repeatedly I use two different substrates, the rough dark for the undergroundand the bright, slightly finer substrate Of course plants should not be missingin this case, an Anubias barteri var.

barteri, Cryptocoryne wendtii green and 'Mi Oya', Spathiphyllum, Moss balls and Taxiphyllum barbieri.

And finally a large piece of mangrove wood.

I watered plants and wood for about two weeks With the stones and the coarse substrate I build small terraces in the background, the fine soil substrate comes to the fore and serves as a playground without being planted How to set up the aquarium ?Of course it always depends on what you want to keep for animals or plants.

Pump and heating element are mounted quickly and easily.

In the front chamber, the filter material is introduced, Cirax at the bottom.

fine and coarse filter mats, a nitrate remover, activated carbon and a filter fabric to pre-filter the coarse contamination.

The pump pulls the water from above through the white fleece down through the filter chamber Finally the time has come – water march! The heating element, needed exactly as described, about 12 hours to warm the water temperature from 16 to 30 degrees Celsius.

So it also works fine The two LED tubes are reflected from the waterand you can see a cool white below and a warm white tube above.

LED tubes in the aquarium are a fine thing.

What I have to say in retrospect about the base cabinet, There are no back walls, left and right, and no possibility to insert an intermediate board.

Has the consequence that I have to stack my stuff and it can fall out to the back.

I like better the middle compartment with back wall and board.

My conclusion:The price-performance ratio is very good With this aquarium made out of chipboard and plastic cover Jewel relies on a sturdy standard and timeless design My old Juwel lasted at least 20 years and I see no reason why my new Rio180 will not get that old too The door mechanism on the base cabinet seem to be a good ideabut still the back walls and intermediate boards fall away Nevertheless the technique has consistently convinced mefrom the LED tubes over the heater to the thermometer everything has a high quality, and the two-chamber biofilter makes a very good impression also All in all, I have to sayI have a solid, well thought out, and well-processed aquarium .

including high quality technology I definitely like it, if you like what you see, give me a thumb For more videos you should subscribe to this channel and necessarily activate the bell.

I say thanks for watching, Feed your fish from me .

…see you next time.
