How long does FSS buffer pH?

My Fluval shrimp stratum stopped buffering the pH after 3 months, (weird). How long does it usually buffer? If it stops do CRS still breed in it (dumb question)? Should I try to get another batch or UP shrimp sand? (CRS were wiped out by my dad's fingers that touched ich removal meds) Will my fire reds die from changing from 7.2 - 6.4 pH? (acclimating again will solve problem right?) Has anyone ever successfully bred CRS in 7.2-7.6 pH? AKA inert gravel. I just want to breed CRS so they replace the future dying parents. Sorry for so many questions. :p
