need help plz. wc + prime right before using atm colony. is this okay?!?!

i wanted to do a wc only to raise my ph from approx 6.8 up to a more desired 7.5 ish which my tap water would be able to do.

so is it ok to do a w/c and then add prime followed up with the new fish and colony?!?

or should i just put in the new fish and the colony now and leave the ph where it is?!?!

please help as time is a factor for the fish that are not in the tank yet!

Leave the pH where it is. More problems are caused by water parameter fluctuation.
