Sometimes, aquarists add peat moss as a layer underneath the substrate. It will help lower the pH for you but if you are new to shrimp keeping hobby, I would not advise doing that.
You can put some peat moss in a nylon bag and *add it in a filter or just hang it in the tank.
*Warning: peat moss will lower the pH of the water even faster than driftwood. That is why, for small tanks, it is not recommended to filter with peat, as it is hard to control.
It didn't seem like the correct amount.

I’ve bought organic peat from Abquatics on eBay now several times and it is perfect in every way. Fast transaction and always delivered early (even with Covid hold ups). Great to deal with and brilliant product.
