As for low PH and low temp, I the water temp can be a little lower thanks to blasting the AC and fan in my room the water temp probably gets low 70s. As for the pH would it be safe to use like, sachem discus buffer?
A buffering substrate is recomended for them such as Fluval Stratum (amazon),
, etc. For such a small tank, you won't need much at all.
I would not suggest the seachem discus buffer, as it removes GH (which you want for the shrimp), but not KH(which you don't want).
