You are a little on the base side of neutral. I would shoot for 6 - 6.5. You could add some Blackwater Extract (Tetra Aqua) to lower pH, or let the system age a bit more if it is relatively new.

The pH is fine. It is more important to maintain a stable pH, as opposed to constantly trying to manage and change it. If you're looking to lower it into the 6 range, trying adding some spaghnum moss to your filtration. It will add some tannins to the water, but not too much.
