Using peat moss
I apologize in advance if the information I'm looking for is listed somewhere in this forum, but I couldn't find it.
Can anyone help me with specific instructions on how to use peat moss in a filter to help lower pH? Is this the same peat moss one would purchase in a garden-type store, or is it something specific for aquariums? How how much do you use? Does it need to be treated or prepared in any way first? Is it put in something before adding it to the filter? How long will it last/should it replaced regularly? What else should I know? I hope these aren't stupid questions...
I have a filtered tank in a very warm room with a goldfish and 3 zebra danios. My pH is 8.2. Ammonia, Nirtite, and Nitrate are all good (0,0 and 0-20).
