PH is related to CO2 but I also see that you have some nitrate hogging plants. So if you see Ammonia and Nitrite dropping to 0. You are good to go. Nitrate is tricky when you have a lot of plants. I recently had this discussion in this forum. I hope you know about the Nitrate test issue if you are using API test kit. you have to bang, drop the bottle #2 and run around with it to get good results.
I had 0 Nitrate for almost 2 years and recently I started dosing Nitrogen. You might have to do that because if you have 0 Nitrate for a long time, BGA would develop as it is a new tank.
Another tip, 10G is one of the sizes that needs highest attention.
