and none of those tannins will ruin the water? just drop the ph a bit right?The brownish tint or darker coloration comes from tannins.
True, a lot of tannins is dissolved from a new driftwood.
And true, you can also buy peat extract (blackwater extract), that also contains tannins, just like peat granules or tablets.
Tannins (humic acids) will lower the alkalinity (KH) of the water and thus also pH is slightly lowered.
i would get them for a fish tank,and they could go into the filter,but put them in a stocking. kind of funny they sell them without the sock. i guess they make more money of ya that wayI know you probably meant yeah, but any peat tablets will do? I can just get the ones in the plant department? Or yeah just put them in the canister filter? I just don't want to go get them and put them in and have my fish get sick or something. So to clarify, any peat tablets, or do they have to be specifically for fish tanks. I plan on putting a peat tablet in some nylon and into my canister filter, whenever I figure out which ones I can put in there.
Hmmm, I've never seen peat pellets in the gardening section before.Okay, I understand what you mean, you use the actual amazon peats for aquariums. I would only use the peat pellets anyways. I wouldnt use loose peat. I meant the peat pellets in the gardening sections. But I understand what you meant now.
