Keep your Fluval Nano Filter working effectively and set ideal pH levels for tropical fish with Fluval Peat Granules Filter Media. Tropical fish like cichlids, discus and angelfish need soft, acidic water that mimic their living conditions in the wild. Fluval Peat Granules Filter Media provide an all-natural way to soften your aquarium's water with highly concentrated peat. Peat contains humic acid, tanning agents and trace elements that are necessary for these fish to grow and thrive. It also works great to grow lush aquatic plants! Use with external filters in freshwater aquariums only.

Setting up a Dwarf Cichlids-Ram & Community Tank and having a super hard time trying to get Water Hardness down, tested off the color charts, tried boiling water and changing out 2 Gallons a Day, after the 3rd week decided to try Peat as I don't want use chemicals and with the first week the water test showed PROGRESS! Tank has cycled and the water is FINALLY getting lower, I don't mind the TEA colored water but just wished it gave you some kind of idea of just how much Peat you need per media bag for however many gallons of water to be treated! I'm just happy that it's helped lower the Hardness and helping with the PH fluctuations.
Effectively lower pH

We have a 60 gallon Amazon species tank and needed to lower the pH by about .8. Adding the granules to the filter has definitely helped. Two notes: these are loose and need to be placed in a bag (we used a cut up old stocking) and they WILL give your water an iced-tea hue.
