Like some driftwood, it will color the water at first, but as water changes are done, the water will get clearer and clearer. This is because the wood is releasing stuff that colors the water, but that stuff isn't in unlimited amounts. Eventually, it gets to such a small amount that when the log has released enough of the stuff into the water to be at equilibrium (equal amounts in water and log) you won't be able to tell in the water! I think a similiar thing will happen with peat, but not if you continually replace it...
Tank in transition! 55 gallons, hard water.
