Do a 50% water change and gravel clean the substrate every day for a week.
Make sure any new water is free of chlorine/ chloramine before it's added to the tank.

Add a couple of shells or small pieces of limestone rock to the tank to help stabilise the pH. Monitor the pH over a week and if the pH keeps dropping, add a bit more limestone. Continue adding limestone or shells until the pH stabilises and doesn't drop over a week.
