It is indeed, however, peat moss is...messy haha I tried it and got fed up with it. Id use some bog wood or mopani wood...itll stain your water brown by the water leaching the tannic acid out of the wood, but its really not that big of a deal when the lights are on, only in dim lighting is it really noticable. Make sure you keep up with water changes, as the water will get too acidic otherwise.
