Driftwood with flesh bark, or red tea with no additive will strain the water.

and if you only want to keep the ph down, use peat,
Or grow large amount of plants for about sometime, the ph will drop.
either case you need really strong biological filter, because once ph lower, the nitrification bacteria will be inhibited.
