Limestone and Sulawesi Cardinals

I have an abundance of natural stones near my house. Since I am in CA, they are most likely limestones.

I am in the process of setting up a Sulawesi Cardinal tank and planning on using inert Pool filter sand and re-mineralize RO water with Sulawesi Mineral 8.5.

If I use the limestones, would it increase my KH and GH at a noticeable rate where it will swing my parameters and slowly increase my KH GH numbers over time in the tank if I keep doing WC with proper re-mineralized water?

I know this is a bit old but I am similarly looking at limestone to use in a planted co2 tank with cardinal shrimp. Since they like a higher ph, I am wondering if I can drop some limestone in to offset the ph drop from the co2??
