Raul may I suggest you try Tetra blackwater additive, I used it on my tank, and the angels I bought a few weeks back suddenly decided to start opening their fins again and looks happy for a change, also my plants seems to have taken off with about 4 leaves each, one started makeing red leaves, I dunno what its called I can post a pick if you want. And it hardly made my water any darker, the darkness goes away after about 48 hours.

I know this product, but what did it do to ur pH and dH? I've found Sphagnum Peat Moss..I think I'm going to use some in the bottom layer of my substrate.

My Ph went down, just a tad, don't know hardness, can't afford the kit over here.

Tetra Blackwater Extract is a blend of peat extract, naturally occurring vitamins and plant hormones, which recreates the natural water conditions found in areas such as the Amazon.
