Diamond Black, leonardite and lignite are similar. See:

I'm planning on using Peat and Diamond Black as organic substrate additives in conjunction with mulm. The exact amounts are not yet defined, but they will go under Eco-Complete topped with Onyx Sand as Eco-Complete seems to be on the light (weight) side.
