Whew, great thread read! Sorry I'm so late to the party.

Cracked me up too! Anyways, DogFish, so much good info in here. And thank you for all the info you supplied in regards to h202 I read in some other threads tonight.

Also, a question... I've been told Canadian Peat moss is different than Sphagnum moss, whilst I'm familiar w/ peat as something else, can you give me your thoughts? I suppose I'm referring to your addition of "peat" when you were reworking substrate. In my familiarity, peat is the broken down (animals, overgrown moss, organic mat., etc.), base layer of peat bogs w/ sphagnum moss being the top-most growth. The peat I can purchase at my local garden center would be in a large, compressed bale of black goodness, whereas sphagnum moss would be what I saw in the pictures. Perhaps you added both? I suppose I'm just curious as to which people are referring to when they say they've used peat in substrate. Is this like a regional dialect thing for the same thing? I've used peat (the dirt) in my substrate for several tanks, but had not thought to add sphagnum. I have experimented using sphagnum in an HOB once to try to lower pH. Don't recall if it worked.

Anyways cheers on the willingness to experiment and to journal it so well! Any updates w/ the rams?

Peat moss will contain decomposed sphagnum remnants, and is oftentimes labeled as "sphagnum peat moss". It depends on the source but you can pretty much count on Canadian peat coming from Sphagnum bogs.

But you can get sphagnum moss itself dried out as milled or as "long fiber sphagnum" (LFS)...even live Sphagnum is available (although I wouldn't recommend this for aquariums)...they're just at different stages of life/decomp. The stuff shown in the pictures in post #179 looks more like LFS than traditional peat.

Thanks for the quick replies, jpappy and dogfish. Hehe, no worries on the specific parts, just a question I've been curious about for some time, I do appreciate the clarification. None of my tanks have been created like the one before it, constantly trying new things!
