2 1/2 weeks since planting!

Tank has been absolute fine so far, had a tiny algae bloom, put a few Nerite Snails in & theyíve been going at it & itís back to clear of algae so far.

The background plants have been growing an inch every 2 days, Iíve trimmed them down twice so far as they hit the surface of the water.

The carpet is coming slowly, can see the roots travelling horizontal under the substrate which is nice.

Have down 2 weekly water tests so far;

Week 1:

GH - 4 drops (50ppm)
KH - 2 drops (0-50ppm)
PH - 6.4/6.5
Phosphate - 0
Nitrate - 5ppm
Ammonia - 0.5ppm
Nitrite - 0

Week 2:

GH - 4 drops (50ppm)
KH - 3 drops (0-50ppm)
PH - 6.5
Phosphate - 0
Nitrate - 5-10ppm
Ammonia - 0.25ppm
Nitrite - 0

Iím relatively new to the testing for specifics so any advice would be great, I was surprised the PH was below 7, is that normal?
