How many bags would I need to use in a fx4 and fx6 to bring the ph down from 8 to 7.4
Answer by ChewyFeb 19, 2018
The Fx6 has a media capacity of 11.5 Liters so you could start with half and then test the water for pH levels.

When should I change the granules, how often? Can I mix them with carbon?
Answer by ChewySep 03, 2020
Be sure to replace the filter media at least every three to four weeks and give the filter housing a quick rinse. This product is highly concentrated for maximum effectiveness so there is no need to mix it with carbon.

should I remove carbon filter bags and replace with the Pete granules
Answer by ChewySep 22, 2020
This will depend on the filter options and what you are trying to achieve in your tank. This media provides ideal environment for tropical fish such as cichlids, discus and angelfish, and promotes live aquatic plant growth.

I have a Fluval 305 filter and I just bought this for the first time as my PH levels are low. Since it is not in a pouch where do I place the peat granules in the filter?
Answer by ChewyJun 29, 2017
The peat granules need to be placed inside a filter or a mesh pouch.

Great product

I used this peat moss for a long time I could not get around here I found it on chewy. It does help the plants and the fish and reduce alge .

Lowered Water Hardness Quickly

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.
