when did you test it and how did you test it, it does fluctuate during the 24 hours in a day period

Its fine but if you want to raise it open the closest window and get from fresh O2 inside. If there is alot of CO2 in a room that has poor ventillation your PH will drop. Opening a window ill fix this but also make sure you have good surface movement in your tank. You can position a powerhead that you have in your tank towards the surface which will aid in increasing your PH
