Anyone have any experience with using peat moss in their aquarium? Did you boil it before putting it in the filter? Im not concerned about it changing the color of the water i'm doing it more to lower my pH for discus. Also, should I change it with every weekly water change? Thanks
Don't boil it first. It should be changed at least every other week. Just an FYI, if your water is really hard with a high buffering capacity (as mine is) the peat (and driftwood) will have very little to no effect on the ph.
I dont have africans mixed with discus. I have a separate 70 gallon that im putting discus and tetras in. My tap water pH is between 7.2-7.5. I already have a huge piece of driftwood in that tank and it hasnt lowered the pH at all.
