Fluval (the filter folks -- Hagen?) sell German fibrous peat as an expensive
filter medium. Lee gets it really, really cheap ($5). Around here, that tiny
packet is usually $7-8.
It's a by-product of the agricultural peat business. It's essentially all
the coarse stuff they comb out and throw away when baling peat. German
hobbyists can go get it easily (free, I think), so we encourage them to use
it as packing material when we exchange fish.
We need to find a Canadian with ties to the peat business here, so we could
get it as readily as the Danes and Germans appear to. It is wonderful
spawning and hiding medium for many kinds of killies.
I have and use a lot of it, from previous European box exchanges at BAKA.
Royal and Bill or any others traveling in Germany from here also stuff any
spare space in their luggage with it. Someday a DEA agent is going to... :-)
