Looks to be quite a high pH, around 8.4. Peas are by all accounts quite adaptable so you may be OK. I keep mine closer to neutral though.

Do you think adding a little bit of pH down will help

It is never a good idea to add those chemicals, you will end up with a shifting, unstable Ph. Many fish can adapt to a ph outside of their ideal range, especially captive bred fish. But no fish can adapt to shifting ph.
I have never had a puffer, I can't tell you if they are adaptable.

I have heard people have kept 8.8 everything else in the tank is good plenty of plants they’ll be getting daphnia blood worms and if I can find some bladder snails
