Baking soda isnt the greatest solution, i have crushed coral in both my filters in my 20g long because my substrate encourages a ph below 7. With the crushed coral, it raised my ph back up to about 7.5 over time by itself without having to constantly add more. Plus it adds to the bio media as more surface area for the nitrifying bacteria. Not sure if this helps you or not. I say over time because its not instant like baking soda and theres not as much playing around. in the end, no shock to the live stock as it basically acclimated itself internally over the course of a few days.
