I'm with Brian,
The mainstay of my fish room is and has been peat for more than 35
years. I do use coconut fiber, but it is mixed with peat for some annuals
with short incubation time,
I use peat in bags in filters to soften water, I use German long
fiber peat to soften water, to spawn divers etc.
I have never found any substitute for spawning most annual fish,
for incubating eggs to watch development.
I certainly have use sand, walnut shells, ion exchange resin,
glass beads, sponges and many more things for spawning fish, but , as far
as I am concerned, the backbone of a black waster fish room in
Peat............... plain and simple...
