I wouldnt mess with your ph, its really not that low. Why is your goal to have a ph between 7.5 and 6.5? Most shrimp prefer ph at or below where you are now. It wont hurt the plants any either.

It does kind of look like something is eating it, but could also looks similar to a magnesium deficiency with the darker veins and pale yellow leaves. Are you adding any GH booster? What is your GH?
