Where to buy Peat?

Okay I know this might sound real stupid but I need to know what I am putting in my filter before i put it in,
Is peat, Peat moss?
If it is then I should be able to pick some up at my garden store or hardware store, Right?

Do you just stick it in panty hose and then throw it in the filter or just put it in the filter?
What's the best way? I am trying to lower my PH and figured i'd give peat a try.
Thanks for any info you have.

The garden section of any store should have it ... Walmart, for example.

I got my peat from Ace Hardware. Yes, you can put peat in to panty hose and put it in your filter.

is the remedy for stupidity.

It's not the size of the tank, but how you use it.

any garden center or hardware store... don't forget to sterilize it before using it in the aquarium.
