Exactly what I wanted. 17 Dec 2012
By V. Farias - Published on Amazon.com

Peat is use to naturally lower pH and water hardness. This is not going to chemically filter or polish your water. In fact it will turn your water a slightly yellowish color, this is to be expected. If you want to stay away from chemical and naturally lower pH and hardness then this for You. Especially if you keep or plan to keep fish like Cardinal tetras or Discus, well at least attempting to breed Discus. If your just keeping Discus then you should be fine w/o this.

The only thing that I wasn't to happy about was that It does not specify how much to use.

I Do WARN you if your not careful IT WILL DROP your pH way to fast and could kill your fish. I would recommend to start off with a small amount and gradually increase that amount til you get to your desired pH & Hardness Level. If you don't have anything to test your water, get something (I recommend API products) you will need it. Finally this does not come prepackage or in mesh bag. You will need to purchase some.

Can use this with any filter. 22 May 2012
By La_Paloma_Mar - Published on Amazon.com

I use this to bring down the Ph in my tank without shocking the fish. This media brought my ph down to a 6.5 from an 8.2. I use 3 teaspoons in a small mesh bag (you can get these at any party supply store.)in with my other media filter on my AquaClear filter 50gal filter for a 46gal tank. You could also use the toe of an old pair of ladies stockings/ pantyhose to keep the peat in the filter and not the tank.

Fish love it 28 Dec 2012
By Rachel Laurel - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is cleaner and easier to work with than garden peat moss. I also feel it is safer as it is pure and meant for the aquarium. The box may seem small, but you don't need much and last a long time. I put some in a knee high pantyhose tied a knot and put it in the tank. By doing it this way all the pieces stay inside of the pantyhose and doesn't float around the tank. At first it floats, but I pushed it behind the filter stem under the water. In a couple of days the peat moss is wet enough to sink. I noticed the water becomes very soft, but it hasn't lowed the PH. The water does get a dirty, tea stained look and if you are directly above the tank you can smell a little bit of the dirt, but all the fish seem to love it. Fish like the neon tetras that would normally hide behind my plants and rock now come out to the front of the tank.

Good for slowly lowering pH 12 Mar 2013
By untilmake - Published on Amazon.com

There is not much choice in choosing ready-to-go peat granules for aquariums in the market except this product.
Before you put in your tank or in your filter, let it absorb water first. I pour boiling water over it in a bowl first before setting them in the filter. Otherwise, it will take a long time for them absorb water in the tank or in the filter. when the granules all sank at the bottle of the bowl, they have absorbed enough water.

It's good stuff 15 Sep 2013
By RI-turtleguy - Published on Amazon.com

I started using this stuff a few months ago. My tap water is very "hard" and has a chlorine taste to it. When I ordered my first "Master" water test kit from Amazon. Which I highly recommend the 30$ investment, the ph levels from the faucet, were out of control, and the Ammonia levels in my Turtlee tank and fish tanks were bad. This product naturally lowers the PH. I like using a piece of drift wood in all my tanks. It takes awhile for the drift wood to be conditioned meaning filling a 6gal. bucket of water and put in the drift wood in the bucket keeping it under water with a rock on it to stop the wood from floating. You change the water in the bucket daily because the water turns brown. after a few weeks, the wood will not float and the water will not be as brown. The brown water is a chemical that naturally lowers the ph in you tank. It's better in my opinion to lower your ph with Peat or drift wood than Acid. The Peat granules you add to your filer, and kind of filter as long as the peat is in a filter pouch, softens the water tremendously. The ph drops, fast, your water doesn't get brown as much as if you were to use drift wood. When I put my hand in the 100g turtle tank I can feel difference on my wet hand. Less is more when I comes to Aquatic Habitats as far a chemical use.
