PH/KH - Any adjustments I should make?

Wondering if I should take any measures to buffer my water?

This is for my 10g at work, I use water out of our office filtered and uv sterilized cooler, which has a pH of aprox 7.2-7.4 and a KH of literally 1 or two degrees...

Currently only inhabitants are plants and amano shrimp. Tank is running with 2 x 2 liter DIY co2 with a DIY hagen elite mini-filter diffuser/reactor.

As far as I know Amanos like water from 3-10 dKH and a pH of 6.5 -8.0. You should be fine.
