How much tanin is too much?
I have this really large piece of wood (mopani) ,too large to fit in any container to boil or to fully soak.
If I were to soak it partially for a couple of days ,and then drop it in the tank ,I imagine the water would quickly turn brown.Not a big problem for me ,aesthetic wise ,not a problem about light penetration either ,as the tank is only 10 inch high.
I usually perform a weekly water change in the tank ,could the ph drop too low in 6-7 days because of the tea?
I also read that tanins are somewhat benefic to the fish ,but ,can they cause problems if the water is too"brown"?
Can't come to work today ,Boss......I've got Bolbitis...
