What PH does your betta prefer

Does anyone keep their betta in low PH water. Mine gets very upset when I try to raise it. It is currently between 6 - 6.5 depending on the time of day. Have never come across one that likes it that low. 

6.0 seems pretty low/acidic. I think what is most important is consistency rather than chasing a specific number.

@Zenzo I did try to raise the PH slowly with crushed coral and very small water changes over the last two weeks, but once it got above 6.7 he got really moody and laying on the bottom of the tank. Took the crushed coral out two days ago and the PH has returned back to where it was and has returned to happy and chasing his tank mates around. 🤷‍♂️

Have had a least a dozen over the years and never come across it.
