I would start with a water change and continue to do them til your readings are back to normal. Your ph could be low due to taking your readings at night. I'd deal with the ammonia and nitrite issues then if your ph doesn't level out with the rest of the tank, address it then.

So water changes are what we do to balance out the water? I`ll continue to do so and keep everyone posted

Water changes until you clean up the NO2/3 and Ammonia.

PH can easily be raised later and is still within tolerable levels.

yeah they balance out the water, but you have to do big ones.....

like if your nitrates are 100ppm and you do a 50% WC they'll be 50ppm
then the next 50% WC they'll be 25 and so on and so on. do big WC when your water gets all screwed up like that. You can even do them every day if you need to.
