I think I remember an article on the Krib about someone spilling a half cup 
of coffee into a tank of fish that hadn't spawned no matter what was 
tried... The next couple days after the spillage, they spawned.  Perhaps it 
is somewhat similar to peat filtered blackwater?  Lower pH and yellow 
water...  Hmmmm

The most likely effect will be a lower pH and slight yellowing of the water.
Other than that, don't panic.Bob Dixon
