High pH 7.6?

I have a 3 gallon Eclipse for my one betta male CT. The parameters have consistently shown what looks like a pH of 7.6, although could be a little lower at 7.4. Hard to tell for sure on this API test kit. My beta seems to be perfectly happy. Should I be concerned and if so - what should I do?

Thanks in advance.

You never really need to mess with the PH, 7.6 is fine, and the fish adjust :D

I have a 7.8 PH, and my Bettas have never had a problem.

Your welcome :D The only way a betta is affected by PH is when it flucuates, or you have a super duper high PH which makes a Crowntail bettas' fins curl. ^^
