Alk doesn't really matter so long as its not incredibly high or low. Worry more about keeping pH between 7.8-8.3, calc around 400 ppm, magnesium around 1200 ppm, ammo nitrite 0 and nitrates under 20.

I don't even look at alk when I measure with those all in one strips.

It looks like a dip stick... that's not a name people get called because they work well... I suggest you get a liquid test kit.

according to the strip it looks a little low.

I think most cardinal fishes dont swim very much. Mine stayed still most of the time and ate mostly mysis shrimp. Sadly it died of an unknown cause =(
