What platned aquarium sub's dont lower ph?


Hi everyone,

I have a quick question to ask. I am planning on do sulawesi cardinal shrimp and they like high ph, but i also wanted to do a planted tank, so i wanted to know, is there any planted aquarium substrates (so substrates that are good for plants) that dont lower the ph? I cant find anything online and for what i have seen allot of the planted tank substrates lower the ph. If you guys could let me know that would be great. Thanks!

You can use an inert substrate and add root tabs
