Ada ph buffer predicament


Recommended Posts

I am planing to acquire some crs and crb. I am wanting to raise the ph of the tank to about 6.4 - 6.7 to get optimal conditions for the crystal shrimp. The tank is currently at a 6 possibly lower ph I can only see so much with an API test kit  I have ada Amazonia soil which buffers the ph Down, how would I maintain a stable ph of 6.4 - 6.7 with a low kh.   When I am fighting against the buffer along with almond leaves and alder comes which want to lower the ph even more Also I have fire red cherrys stocked so any changes would have to be as steady and subtle as possible. I was also thinking of weaking the buffer but idk how to go about that with shrimp inside idk what to do at this point.
