Old Peat Granules?
I'm going to be setting up a JBJ Picotope 3 Gallon soon, and I'll be using a bit of 3 year old Eco-Complete, fine particles only, and Black Diamond Blasting Sand, 30/60 grit.
I have some Fluval Peat Granules that I bought a few years back.
Should I/can I add these as a base layer to soften the water some and also absorb some nutrients?
I don't know much about adding peat into the substrate.
Also, are there any other affordable additives that I can put in under the Black Diamond? I don't want to dirt the tank, but would like to have nutrition for my plants. I will be using root tabs and ferts when I can acquire them.
