Wait a minute here settle down. How new is your tank. 7 dkh is a little low however not that low. Its not crazy low. What are your calcium levels? That will be the main thing. You want to keep them in the range of 400 to 450. Dont do anything until you have tested those.

420 ppm Ca is fine. Don't worry and let it seek it's own level before you add anything else.
