If you're asking if you need to bring down your pH for your plants, then it depends on what plants you have.
Some people use a thin layer of peat in their substrate, I believe it aids in bacterial growth.
Adding peat to your filter will lower your pH, if you really need to, but it will turn your water yellow-brown and probably decrease light penetration.
