At this point, I'd just do maybe double up on your water changes (twice per week versus once per week, etc.) and keep an eye on things.
Hard to know if you're really having pH issues, but if you are, adding livestock would be the last thing I'd do at this point until I either convinced myself things were fine, or the pH bumped up a bit and stabilized more.
