Keeping Sphagnum Peat in a cannister filter

Is there any issues with keeping peat in a cannister? How often would you have to change it?

If kept in the trays, what level would be best. It would be a Rena XP3.

Want to lower the ph for rams as well as to get the tea stain water color which I believe it will.

The PH is about a neutral 7, and would like to get to 6.5-6.0 if possible.I have no problems continuing with peat for the long run.
