Why don't you try to lower the PH down with driftwood and almond leaves.
The almond leaves and sometimes the driftwood will leak brown dye into your water but just use aquarium charcoal filter to remove the dye and you should be set.
Also driftwood and leaves look pretty sweet in a planted tank.
I keep Scarlet Badis and all my tanks are a PH5+- due to the ADA substrate, driftwoods and leaves.
