Ram fry pH drop and rise?

So in my ten gallon I have Co2 and it changed the pH obviously and when I do water changes the tap is different then the tap by 1.6... when I change the water the pH goes from 6 or below (my test kit doesn't read lower) to 6.6. I s this change too much for the fry. This decides if I get a small tank to put them in or just use a net breeder.

38 gallon :
Pelvicachromis Taeniatus Nigerian Red not yet breeding pair
4 Pangio Kuhli
12 Hemmigrammus Bleheri
2 Botia Lohachata
1 Botia Straita
1 Ancistrus Sp.
6 Poecilia Reticulata




The Wet Spot Portland Oregon!!!!!!

ADA: Do!aqua Iwagumi 10 gallon size!
7 Clown Killies
7 Ghost shrimp

What's your tank ph without the CO2?

I think you might be driving the CO2 out of the water when you add water.
