It may be a good idea to do one or two extra species beyond the two you are interested in. You should initially do QM calculations to get the geometries and vibrations and interactions with with water to get the initial charges. Then do crystal calculations and free energies of solvation based on the available experimental data. Be sure to determine parameters for all of the relevant protonation states.
