Try not to use chemicals to modify your pH. You'll chase it around and it will never stabilize. Shells can/will raise your pH; Indian Almond leaves or dry Oak leaves or peat can/will lower it...slowly and more or less permanently..

7.8pH is OK for Betta (mine goes to 8.0, sometimes). The pH can get high in a cycling tank. Ammonia is a base.

Your small tank's pH is unusually low. What is your sourcewater pH? What plants do you have?
