Well you were right...the pH test had to be at a higher reading only because of an extra drop in the test tube. Had it happen this morning and did another test in another tube...and my 7 was really 6 pH when retested.

That's good; its easy to do, sometimes the drops seem to just fall out on their own. And your tank is stable, so that's good as well. Just monitor the cycling as mentioned before, all should be well.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
