Ph

46 gallon bow, fluval c4. Play sand bottom.

My ph is consistently 8.2-8.4

Currently stocked with 9 white clouds, 8 espi rasboras.

Adding 8 sterbai Cory's tonight. Drip acclimation.

Do I need to be concerned about the ph long term?

IMO No. After they acclimate they should do fine. A consistent pH is far better than an artificially modified pH that bounces around. IMO it's more important to keep your NO3 down to < 30ppm for those fish you have. Have you done a KH test on your water to see how hard it is? BTW Congrats on the 46g Bow. Those are such beautiful tanks. OS.

Your lfs might do it for free, if soft than the test is worth getting imo. API have a test kit - pretty quick to do.
