When I filtered with peat, I always purchased it at the garden supply
store.  I would then fill the end of a nylon stocking with peat, tye it
off and insert it into my filter.  I used it in this way with power
filters and canister filters, both.  I stopped doing so becuase I made an
effort to decrease my fish labor and it didn't seem to matter much anyway.

A couple of notes;  I like the tea-color that it adds to the water, many
people do not.  Be very careful to assure that the product you purchase is
pure and unfortified peat.
