You need to test your gh and kh, not just your ph to get an idea of how hard it is. If either is over 15 degrees of hardness I would take measures to lower it some. You can use aquarium peat or a rechargeable water softener pillow, but don't lower it too much because harder water is good for cichlids. I have the opposite problem and have to add things to make mine harder.
