Since I'm all out of peat til I make a trek down to the wholesale florist district, I decided to make a nice cuppa tea for the tetras this morning. (I know, but I've already done water changes.) Twining's Earl Grey, I thought. That's nicer than a tincture of Melaleuca alternifolia. "An unusual blend of scented Oriental teas producing a delicate liquor of exceptional fragrance much appreciated in all parts of the world" Twinings claim on the box. Perhaps it will be appreciated in my Amazon basin. I boiled the water and let a teabag steep until it was quite cold. Then I ladled golden cupfuls ("no cream, please") into my pencilfish, my "Amazon" mix, and the Q tank which currently has young Rams and Chilodus punctatus headstanders. It may not be an "Amazon-in-a-Jar" blackwater mix bought at the LFS, but these tannins are endorsed by the present (sixth) Earl Grey. So what did you do for your fish today?
