Don't change unless you see suffering. Too many people get into a million things removing this, adding this, to get water to what they think is perfect. Only thing I've done is add peat pellets to my filter to get my pH lower so my CRS shrimp will breed better. Lots of reading I have found that can live fine in higher pH but will want to breed in a lower a pH and the babies survive better in pH, but if the peat doesn't work, I'm already setting up another tank with substrate to lower the pH because I'm not going RO water, then adding back to that, or mixing RO and tap and constant monitoring, just seems to much.
What plants are you growing that need a gH of 5 as opposed to 3?
20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.
