FWIW. In the past there have been threads on creating/maintaining black water for our finny friends. I received the following as an email from a vendor who deals mostly with amphibians. I have no direct knowledge of the product but thought some of you may be interested. I have bought from this vendor in the past (for frog stuff) and was happy.

Wouldn't rain water get you pretty close?

I'm fortunate in that South Mississippi is riddled with blackwater streams.  The untreated water is drinkable but has a distinct odor and taste.  For a nominal (read "princely") sum I will extract the essence from these streams and ship it in convenient 4oz. bottles (contains artificial colors and flavors).  Do not use Irate's patented Blackwater Elixir (a gluten free product) with activated carbon filtration.  Please read easy-to-follow assembly instructions.  Satisfaction guaranteed.  It slices, it dices, it removes embarrassing lipstick stains from your collar, and it's only a dollar!  Just pay nominal shipping and handling. Limitations and exclusions may apply.  Past results are not indicative of future performance.

Rooibos is a popular choice and I've been able to find it at discount stores
