That's really a judgement call.  I would let them grow a bit more and add
the peat when I am ready to breed in the hopes of triggering the first
spawn or two with the addition of peat.  Either option should be fine in
the long run, however.

The KATI and ANI de-ionization filters are intended for aquarium use.  They
are a rechargeable ion-exchange resin system and tend to be a bit pricey.
I ordered mine from Pet Warehouse (www.petwhse.com).  They are under the
heading R.O. & Deionization in their online fish catalogue.  Most local
fish stores can also special order them for you.

Have fun,
