Maybe some muriatic acid to bring the ph down a bit. I strive for 7.5. And a little liquid chlorine to reach 3.0 FC?

No reason to try to keep your pH that low. If it is steady there, then great, but many people find it more stable up around 7.8
Of course that all assumes there is not some other reason that would require you to keep it lower (like high TA or CH).
