I can add ph buffer I’ll dose some tomorrow
How about the nutrients Randy suggested? pH is a little low but tends to be less important than a stable alk and I would follow alk and dose based on that rather than just dosing buffer to chase pH.

I would suggest a stable and relatively low alkalinity around 8 or just below with the nitrates which Randy suggested. May also want to think about testing phos.

No, don't.

You have little control over pH. It is determined by the alkalinity and the CO2 level in the water which is largely driven by CO2 in your home air.

Buffers are just alkalinity supplements, and if you try to control pH that way, alk will get too high.
