Actually, Garret blackwater ecosystems are not so good, the only plants in the tank are Amazon swords, before two years I buy all my substrates and Rick from a local landscape supply store everything is about 20 cents a pound but thank you for the offer. My tap water comes out at 6.5 to 6.8
at about 6 to 10 TDS I am using root tabs for the swords and as far as using leaves I’m only using locally collected materials.
I cannot think of a lake river or stream that I’ve ever seen completely clear. I can usually see down to about the first foot but after that, it’s a mystery what is under the water. What’s good for us isn’t necessarily good for them.
