Question for you: I have tried two kinds of black water media in an attempt to create a stained water look in my planted 20 gallon long tank. I tried Fluval peat granules and also Tetra black water extract. I have no chemical filtration, yet my water remains crystal clear. What gives?

Thanks

I don't know the answer for certain, but do you have activated charcoal in your filter? Also, I used Tetra Blackwater Extract a long time ago and I remember having to use a lot of it per dose, per instructions on the bottlle.

Some people put a few dead tree leaves on top of the substrate. Oak leaves have tannins.
