Plants in a CRS tank w/ 0 KH?

Hi guys,

I just got a finnex 7.5g cube and i was planning on turning it into a low tech planted CRS tank. I will use RO water with Salty Shrimp GH+ to achieve water parameters at:

PH: 6.6 - 6.8
KH: 0
GH: 5

As for plants, I want to have a Micro Sword carpet along with Anubias nana and maybe some other low low-tech plants. My concern though, is that the plants won't do well in 0 KH.

Does anyone have experience keeping a planted CRS tank and would the plants do well in these parameters?
