View Full Version : Blackwater

I have a ph of around 7.5 and it's moderately hard. Would it be beneficial to my rams (and possibly my future tetras) if I added some "blackwater extract" or "Instant amazon" or a similar product? Or would it be better to just add peat to the filter? or would it be better just to leave the shemistry alone?

i dont know about any of the other products so i would say if you really want to soften your water, use peat. But your rams will adapt, the harder water will probably just discourage breeding

Well, i'm not sure but i think blackwater extract is just peat extract

if thats the case then it would probably be fine to use
