    Hello Fellow Fishlorians!

    My Lowe's has a ton of peat moss, but it says that it's made of 99% Canadian peat moss and 1% of fertilizers and "Wetting agent".

    Is it safe for my blackwater build?

    That depends what fish are there I’m guessing probley safe for whatever fish it says it’s designed for on the package

    No, it has a wetting agent. Not fish safe.

    A wetting agent is toxic for fish. They make peat moss for fish, it's 100 % organic.
