As far as your test results... numbers are identicle to mine. As long as your numbers are STABLE you should have very few problems with fish or plants. Just research before buying any fish to make sure they don't NEED low ph.
Live plants will not lower your ph, if anything they will slightly raise it by using co2 .
If you have any questions or anything is unclear please don't hesitate to ask. Good luck!
Oh, I almost forgot... dont mess with your ph!

So far looking good, fish are doing great, plants are growing. One question, its been weeks since iv started this tank and I don't think iv ever measured any nitrite, is that a good thing or bad?
I did a partial water change this past Tuesday, today I checked the water and high range ph was 8.4, ammonia .5, nitrite 0, nitrate was probably 20. before I did the water change on Tuesday the readings were close to the readings I just did today.
How do I know when my cycling has been done? should I wait for two more days to do my water change? so far iv been doing weekly 25% water changes since iv started this tank.
