No need to adjust pH. Fish can adapt to pH usually. It's better to have a stable pH than a chemically altered one that can fluctuate. When you say everything is in normal ranges what do you mean? Ammonia should be 0, nitrite should be 0 and nitrate should be 20ppm or lower. If you have any ammonia or nitrite do a PWC and if your nitrate is over 20ppm do one. It probably is a good idea to do one anyway to be on the safe side.

And yep! Toowoomba born and bred lol. :P
