Questions about substrate

Hello was wondering if peat moss is needed and if it is what does it do to help benefit the substrate? Also is miracle grow nature care organic substrate with water conserve ok to use or do I have to use something else? Thanks.

I believe the water conserve version contains perlite which is kind of like little foam balls that hold water in the soil. Unfortunately, in an aquarium those little balls are going to float and you will have a mess on your hands.
