Put a nylon stocking of peat moss in your filter. Small tank, a tablespoon or two. Medium size tank 1/4-1/2 cup. Larger tank a cup or more.

When I need to make water ahead of time for water changes I will fill up a knee-hi stocking with peat and put it in a 32 gallon garbage can of water, and run a small pump overnight. The peat can be reused several times, but it needs to steep longer as it wears out.

Just boil some water and steep some peat in it. I've done it before and it works quite well. You could also use beech, oak or other hardwood leaves.
