I was wondering if it could have been a temp issue too. I noticed that it's pretty close to the stove. Wonder if that could cause the temp to swing. I know my kitchen can really heat up when I cook,...

Yes, the addition of so much peat was my mistake. Most of the sources I have read since have suggested the dusting of peat. If I were to do it over again, I would definitely use less. Live and learn....

That's a pretty good idea. I had thought about it, but was wondering if there was another way. This may be the best option, coupled with the peat bag in the water for a day.

Right, that's what I figured it was. Also, there is driftwood in the tank, so I'm sure that's not helping either. I just wanted to know what the options for me would be. If I added something like...
