You can get an RO unit for a lot less that $200 FYI and it will pay for itself keeping shrimp like CRS, unless you are lucky and have good tap water for them.

Stay away from chemicals that lower or raise pH. Using them is asking for problems. RO water, remineralizer, and buffering substrate is the best way to go.
