alkaline ph level questions please help!

Hey again so I won a betta in a raffle so I want to put it in my 3 gallon tank. My question is what can I do about my ph level it says the total alkalinity (kh) ppm freshwater is ideal but the ph - freshwater is between 7.8 and 8.4 alkaline. My 40 gallon has perfect levels but I have fancy guppies n I heard u should not mix the two. So what do I do.

Have you let the water stand for 24hrs after it has come out of the tap before checking?

Yes do u think maybe give it a couple more days or do a small water change? Will it hurt the betta if I just put it in there because the condition of his bowl that he came in is about the same

Do nothing.... if that is the pH of your tap I think the betta will be okay. Acclimate him to his new home, and assuming it is cycled, put him in! (:

"He situates himself in relation to time. He takes his place in it. He admits that he stands at a certain point on a curve that he acknowledges having to travel to its end. He belongs to time, and by the horror that seizes him, he recognizes his worst enemy. Tomorrow, he was longing for tomorrow, whereas everything in him ought to reject it."
