 Hi,
 I  read  many  places  that  peat  moss  and  perlite  can  be  a  good  addition  to  a  substrate  for  a  planted  tank.
 I  am  right  now  in  USA  on  a  business  trip  and  able  to  find  out  a  source  for  the  above  two.  The  only  problem  is  it  is  in  big  bags.  I  am  not  sure  if  I  can  can  get  them  in  smaller  anount.
 Please  let  me  know  the  quantity  required  for  different  size  of  the  tanks  from  your  experince.  
 I  don't  want  to  bring  a  big  bag  and  pay  heavily  for  extra  luggage   Crying or Very sad  
 
 Thanks,
 Sibesh

 You  can  get  Sphagnum  Peat  in  1-2  liter  bags  on  Amazon.
 
 1  liter  should  be  good  enough  for  a  4  x  2  x  2  tank.

 Madan,
 Actually  I  saw  the  peat  in  Walmart,  but  only  problem  is  they  are  selling  them  in  big  bags.  Price  is  ok.
 
 I  will  check  it  in  ebay.
 
 Thanks,
 Sibesh

 Hello
 
 Perlite  is  available  in  bangalore  in  any  quantity.But  I  am  not  sure  if  it  helps  in  plant  growth.
 It  is  popularly  used  in  the  plant  growing  nursery  as  a  substitute  for  sand.
 Peat  is  used  a  substitute  for  soil.
 
 The  reason  for  using  perlite  and  peat  is  that  ,  both  materials  bring  down  the  weight  of  the  potted  plant  drastically.  Thus  making  it  light  and  economical  for  transportation
 
 Perlite  is  available  in  white  crushed  form  and  it  is  very  light  like  thermocol  balls.  It  floats  in  water.  
 
 Spagnum  moss  is  also  available  in  bags.  They  are  popularly  used  to  make  moss  sticks  in  the  plant  industry.

 Sphagnum  moss  is  different  from  Sphagnum  peat.
 Don't  confuse  one  for  the  other  and  replace.

 I  used  sphagnum  peat  moss  in  my  tanks.   Smile   
 Would  like  to  know  what  will  be  the  price  of  it  here,  in  India.
 
 Wanted  to  know  by  terming  it  as  sphagnum  moss,  did  you  mean  the  live  plant,  right?  Neutral

 Sphagnum  moss  when  it  decays  in  the  ground  for  decades  becomes  Sphagnum  peat.
 
 Sphagnum  Moss  is  a  plant  and  is  fresh.
 
 Canadian  Sphagnum  peat  moss  is  mined  from  peat  bogs  and  is  many  decades  /  centuries  old.
 
 Canadian  Sphagnum  Peat  moss  is  not  available  in  india.  I  brought  in  a  large  quantity  2  months  ago  and  asked  people  if  they  wanted  to  buy  some  off  me,  no  one  wanted  it.  Now  it's  all  in  my  garden.  ROFL
