    That water parameters should be good.
    I keep my wilds in tap water and they are doing great.

    That's almost all RO im using with only 10gal tap water used as my tap water has ph of 7.8 and high nitrates of 30-40

    was going to use a seachem buffer to lower PH to around 6 but this would lower my GH/KH even more

    and you must have good tap water sanjay

    My ph is 7.8 and tds of 275 from tap. I even had a male spawn in tap water and had some wrigglers. Key here is stable water, if you are planning on adjusting your water make sure its always the same parameters or else it will stress them. I would not like to mess with ph honestly, but if done right then I don't see any issues. Ph swings can be deadly, I also recommend once you get the water to your desired readings I would age it for 24hrs with an air stone and test the water again, mainly test for ph. Good luck !
