How big is the tank gonna be? Goldfish need at least 20 gallons to swim in.

Why are you using the ph buffer? I don't use any kind of buffer in any of my tanks. That would be the easy solution.

Definately get a ph test next time you go to the fishie store. Mine is 7.6 and all my fish are doing great. Unless your ph is over 8.0 or maybe even higher, I would not worry too much about changing it with chemicals.

That's pretty simialr to mine, I dont think you'll need to use the chemicals its pretty close to 7.0 so I think you''l be all right to have plants
