Your PH narrows it down to pretty much all tropical fish and live bearers. Other considerations would be your filtering capacity, lighting, substrate, and technical prowess... oh and your preferences.

My go to for all stocking stuff is AqAdvisor - Intelligent Freshwater Tropical Fish Aquarium Stocking Calculator and Aquarium Tank/Filter Advisor. Based on that info I can get a good idea of what will or won't work.

Depends on what you are looking for. Cichlids? Livebearers (guppies, mollies, plates, swords)? Community? Aggressive?

Lots of possibilities.

Also what is the hardness of your water? Gh and kh? You can find this info from your local water people most have it posted on the web now a days. Depending on what the kh is in your tank it is possible that your ph may lower naturally over time.
