Crushed corals will work fine. Buffering is in reference to the KH which influences the stability of the pH. If your KH is 3 and lower, then you need to somehow increase it as it is capable of causing your pH to fluctuate a lot thus stressing the aquarium inhabitants. You'll want the KH and GH test kts to determine the hardness levels.
