I bought a bag of Laguna Peat granules to use as a base under 3 bags of eco in a 29H I am kinda paranoid of using it. A friend of mine told me to use that, and that it would not stain my water. Stained water from a piece of driftwood is what caused me to tear my tank down last time. I am trying my hand with the wood again, but it has been boiled. (note: wasnt boiled until no tannins leeched, but the wood looks signifigantly lighter, and the water seemed to get lighter each time I changed it) My friend told me that with the eco over top of it that it wont stain my water. I am expecting a bit of tannin from the wood, and am going to combat that by loading every compartment of my fluval 405 with carbon, and letting it run till the brown goes away before even adding plants or cycling the tank with fish. But I need to know if this peat will defeat my purpose with the wood? Not trying to undermine his advice, I just hate that brown water look, some like it, but its not for me.
