Adjust pH value for shrimps


I have a pH value of 7.5 in my aquarium  (60 cm/54 l). I think this is a bit too high, especially since I want to keep shrimps that, as far as I know, require 6.5 - 7.0. How can I lower the pH value?

in case the pH value refers to "fresh" tap water you should simply wait, as it usually sinks in an aquarium (except if the carbonate hardness is very high). Otherwise I recommend filtering through peat granulate (sera super peat).

The pH value the shrimps prefer depends on their species and is not the same for all freshwater shrimps.
