I do that all the time. I can be watching one of my favorite shows and I zone out on my tank right in the middle of the show lol.

Yea good thing for dvr, or I'd miss a lot of shows because I always get distracted watching my fish.

The only thing to worry about pH balance wise is you don't want to have a constant pH then have it crash (like below 6) and stay low, that will stall a cycle, hence the reason for monitoring pH while cycling you sound very informed and wanting to do things the right way which is good

Yeah I was going to say 6ml is a lot for a 10 gal. It'll be about 1.5 ml depending on what percentage ammonia solution you get. That calculator above will help with dosing (scroll down to where it says ammonia calculator), if you have a dropper.

As others have said, most fish can live in a range of PH. As long as it's stable I wouldnt' worry about it.

You use the regular PH test initially but if it reads the highest on the color chart (7.6) then you should use the high range PH test.
