I'd personally use Purigen since it can be recharged

I'll second this. Purigen works well for tannins in my tanks.

Like a.silica bead, tou buy it either in it's own small.pouch or in a plastic tub so that you can DIY. Place either in filter or in a hidden spot. Cour changes as it abaorbs the *bad stuff* then recharge/clean it with bleach and your good to go again.

I embrace the stain, but I am going for the flooded amazon look. In past tanks I just soaked it in a bucket til i could not wait anymore.
