Switching to RO water

Hi, I have a planted 40 gallon community tank (Guppies, Neon tetras, Corydoras, Otos, Amano shrimp) & a planted 10 gallon tank with RCS, young Amanos & 3 young Bamboo shrimp, I'm going to start using RO water because the tap here is very hard. So should I mix it with the tap or just add it in to the tank? If just adding it in would I need to remineralize it now or when I get it to the KH/GH levels that I want? More info: I'm trying to lower the ph (8), KH is 14 & GH is 7 of the shrimp tank. Thanks.
