Well that too is not a bad thing, my water is very hard, very alkaline
and has high alkalinity ;)  But if I have to maintain regular water
changes I should wait until I'm done with my coppersafe dose to start
adjusting ph, right?  (probably would anyway as there is no point in
stressing the fishwith additional changes) 

What I am really looking for here is not "how to change ph" because I
have already decided peat moss is going to be the most feasible option
for this tank. But I would like to know, how to most effectively use
my peat moss.
