Below clip was actually the source of inspiration. My wife thought I was nuts when I started throwing dead stuff in my tank.

I hope it inspires more people to try this.

very nice setup, but the dead leaves may not sustain for long, will be quite a mess once it decompose and breakdown to smaller particles.

My K leaves got no time to breakdown. My pleco likes munching on them. I used to have the leaves in a mesh bag when I had some monster fish and it could last a couple of months before breaking up.

But yes, expect a lot of debris and the wool gets dirty quite fast. But nothing a weekly siphon can't fix.

If you look at this website that does tanin products, they sell stuff like guava leaves, coconut husk etc. Damn clever marketing I must say.

Anyone else into black water? please share your stuff.

Maybe I will top up the cardinal number, I am now around 20 and these are already quite stable and getting fat.
