fluval flora and endler livebearers together?

Im thinking of getting the fluval flora but i heard the stratum lowers the ph. since endler livebearers live at a ph of around 7.6, will I still be able to keep them? my ph is around 7 right now. What can I add to raise the ph back to what i have now?

Dont worry about it. Endlers are like cockroaches. They will be fine

so endlers can live in low ph at around 6? What can I do to raise the ph without using chemicals.

If you're worried about the stratum lowering the ph then use an inert substrate.

I mixed the flora and shrimp substrate and my ph is 7.7ish. It was originally 7.9

It didn't have much effect on my ph. Use the substrate. My glosso loves it
