I would not stress over possible diseases but rather just provide the best water quality. Many numbers listed For ph of various fish were published years ago when many of the fish in the aquarium trade were wild caught specimens. Over time hobbyists have bred these fish in aquariums and thus the offspring have adapted to different water than that of their wid caught ancestors. As long as your ph remains consistent most aquarists will tell you that the fish will be fine. More trouble occurs when phfluctuates wildly due to the efforts of those constantly trying to adjust it. :)
The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
the only real consistent way to lower ph that ive seen and would be willing to use can get a little expensive. and that is to use reverse osmosis or r/o water when your doing your water changes. but like mention above 7.6 is really not bad at all. i think mines 7.5 and it dont budge lol.
