Voltage in water

I tested the voltage in the water and it read 5.4v AC. Is this enough to worry about?

No, it isn't. Be sure all electrical devices are plugged into a GFI plug or breaker. If you feel any tingling when touching the tank water, you have a problem. Your power heads and heaters will induce some small voltages with almost zero current when running.
