hiding fish

if it were me? i would leave the ph right where it is coming out of the tap.

my other rule of thumb, is when in doubt, do a water change 50% or more.

how many fish in the 55, how many hiding spots, how long have they been in there. if they are new to the tank, they are nervous. if there are too many hiding spots, id hide too. if it is only the 3 fish, id get more, once you are sure your water is correctly cycled. give them lots friends, someone will be confident to come out and swim, then the others will join them.

If you have made sure that the cycling is finished, then it could just be because it is only the three in the tank. They are fairly social and active species so having only a few in the tank could cause them stress. The PH is also low for them so I would try some crushed coral or other method to try and increase it.
