Don't mess with the pH unless your fish is having adverse reactions to it (ie melting fins). Bettas can adapt to pH but causing swings is what will kill your fish.

+1 ;) The most important thing is that you Ph is stable.

Just curious....how are you testing it? Those little test strips will give you false readings...

The API freshwater master test kit is the one that is recommended.
