The wood is not likely to have too much impact. But this depends more on the GH and KH of the tap water. You can ascertain these numbers from the water supply people, they may have a website. And the crushed coral will raise pH more than wood will lower it, even in relatively small amounts. But for rift lake cichlids, i would get the pH even higher, up in the 8's is better, and the coral will do this if you add more. But check the GH because that is equally important, if not more so, to provide the mineral the fish require.
