Re: Peat and all that comes with it.
Don't fuss with the peat. Many years ago I had some "mud" sent
directly to me from South American location of a Cynolebias species in
order to see how "damp ad pipe tobacco" looked in the environment.
I received a chuck of dirt that was rock solid and could drive
finish nails with. it included sticks, weeds, dried leaves. remnant of dead
bugs and beatles. I was not even close to damp and clean.
Roger Langton's number system helps hobbyists convey what their
"pipe tobacco" looks and feels like. It enables us to share our
experiences with fish.
I published the information in JAKA and declared that we are a far
cry from storing peat with the same consistency as the wild. "Witch craft"
plays an important but not often understood game in killie breeding. Many
people store peat at different moisture feels, different temperatures and
mail them to each other. The fish hatch and thrive.
the "Miracle in the Mud" is alive and well ..... Tony
