It will take a lot of peat to ower the pH if your hardness is very high. Like I said, you have to do it with the RO water to accomplish what you want.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Just a questions, and i don't mean anything offensive by it:
what is the attraction of these fish? i think they are cute, but IMHO there are much prettier fish out there. Is it the challenge of keeping them alive that people like? i researched them just a tad, and it seems like they are incredibly difficult to keep alive...

You'll have better luck with Sphaerichthys vaillanti. These ones are more colorful at least or try the licorice gouramis. The only issue is constant supply of live foods unless these fish are weaned on commercial foods which is a very tricky process.
