Question PH and temperature?

I was curious what PH I should keep my betta's tank at?
My previous little boy unfortunately passed away after 3 days- his PH was 6.0, which my local aquarium worker said was WAY to low?
I kept it at this PH due to books I have read, saying that any higher is bad for him, however the aquarium worker told me all of the ones at the shops were kept at around 7.4.
What is the best, in your experience?

Also, I had my temperature at around 26, and my grandfather got angry, telling me that it should be lower. I lowered it to 25... so what do you all have yours at?

Thank you

I don't mess wit pH. Whatever comes out of the tap is it. It's much more dangerous to the fish to have fluctuating pH.

As far as temperature, mine are fine at 25 which is think is around 77F.

If you read the sticky on Betta Care you'll find a lot of the most common questions and maybe some answers, too.

So his disease wasn't caused by the pH you don't think? I'm so devastated, and don't want it happening again :'(
