It seems to me there was a discussion last year about the use of dried oak
leaves to acidify tank water.
Since I moved here (the Pacific Northwest) we have an abundance of oak
Because of all the talk about the use of peat as a spawning media...has
anyone ever thought of using ground up oak leaves?
Couldn't you crush the oak leaves and boil them in water to remove some of
the acid then use the resulting "mush" for spawning annuals?
By crushing the leaves you could control how fine or coarse you want the
material to be.
How about used ........ coffee grounds?
Star Bucks gives away used coffee grounds.
So what if the fish are a bit wide eyed and jittery!
Time to go while my grad students change the water and collect the eggs
