I'd only add buffer if your dKH falls below 8 DKH. You're right where you should be at this point and with pwc it shouldn't change much at all.

Most PH buffers are really alk buffers which if low will affect your ph.

Checkout A Simplified Guide to the Relationship Between Calcium, Alkalinity, Magnesium and pH


If you haven't figured it out yet I like to BOLD links :P
