I use crushed coral (get from any pet store) in a filter bag in the canister filter for my cardinal tank. There's another product by the same company that makes that Bee Mineral GH+, it's called salty shrimp sulawesi 8 or something like that, i'd use that to condition your RO water, it'll raise the GH, KH and pH to the exact level (or so the package claims, hah)

oh yeah, and please take the goldfish out before putting your cardinals in the aquarium!

and let your aquarium re-cycle once you change the pH and temperature, that might shock some of the beneficial bacteria into a mini cycle.
