acclimating plants to new pH

I've collected a bunch of _Cabomba_, _Hygrophila_ and _Hydrilla_ from
limestone bedrock streams in central Texas, where the water is hard, with
a pH of nearly 7.8. I'd like to acclimate them to a soft, very acid (6.5)
angel tank and a neutral pH paludarium.

What's the best way of doing this? How gradually should the pH and
hardness be lowered?
