Why do you want to lower it? 7.4 is not a bad PH for most of the fish we keep except for Africans and then you would be trying to raise the PH. My usual recommendation is to maintain a stable PH unless the goal is a specific species that needs the PH lowered for breeding. I hate messing with water chemistry unless it is really necessary.
