Tannins questions

Luckyscale2003

i hope this is the right thread anyways
I have a few Q's
can I use lipton black tea bags in my tank?
can I use tannins in my oscar/african cichlid tank? or would that lower ph too much because in my community tank when I add tannins from leaves it lowers my ph to 7 when its normally between 7.4 to 7.6

Tannins will reduce your ph so personally id avoid dropping it any more. Not sure on using regular tea (contains caffeine so surely that wont be good). I use indian almond leaves, wood and alder cones for my south american tanks but african cichlids wont need it.
