Thanks for the kind words. Since there are many different species of "tannins", I'm guessing the makeup of the tannins released from peat and IAL are very different, but I think both will lower the pH and do all that good stuff tannins are supposed to do. IAL are easy, I just threw some whole leaves in my canister filter, didn't have to bag it up or anything. Not sure where you would buy peat moss any more-would sphagnum moss from home depot be fine?
