I am interested in creating a blackwater tank and I have a few questions for anyone who has experience.
1. Can anyone recommend a good website or information source about creating a blackwater tank? I have looked around but I have been unable to find any decent information on the subject.
2. Black water extract, yay or nay? What exactly does it do other than soften water and darken your water?
3. Has anyone ever put a layer of peat below their substrate? If so what exactly were the results?
4. I have read an article that states beech leaves are the leaf to add and you should never add oak leaves, but I have also read oak leaves are ideal... I really don't have access to either, mainly just birch, willow and cotton wood.
