Is my fish sick?

Hey guys I bought some new fish yesterday to add to my 20g tank. They were super active an happy yesterday but today one seems to be a bit sad. Just sitting at the bottom of the tank. Untested the water with "Nutrafin PH test" kit and my ph is at 7.5-8. I did add "EasyBalance" to bring down PH. The fish are all eating, no red spots on their bodies. Any advice is appreciated

Is this a saltwater tank? If so the ph should be about 8.0 - 8.3.....

180g Reef - 60g Rimless Reef -90G FOWLR- 125g Malawi Cichlids- 40b REEF- 34g Fresh Planted-working on- 20L FOWLR- working on
I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

You brought the ph down from 7.5 or to 7.5? You really dont need to mess with ph. If you can avoid putting artificial things in you tank, you are better off. What are the rest of your parameters? Ammonia, nitrIte and NitrAte?
