I have read they will do better with a higher pH. They need GH and calcium source for their exoskeleton, I believe. If you had a can filter, I would put crushed coral in there. But probably a foam filter, so about all you can do is put in some crushed coral in the tank, or dose baking soda for KH and mg. and calcium for GH such as Seachem's Equilibrium. Or if you have harder water like many do in Florida, more water changes.
