Amano's Power Sand has peat in it. I am experimenting with Fluval Peat
pellets, but it has only been a couple weeks. Too early to say. The simplest
way to do it is to just buy some sphagnum and mix a little into the gravel.
But who says you should do this? Dupla and other laterites contain NO organic
stuff whatsoever and work great.
