How much below and how much above? Goldfish are pretty adaptable, but they do prefer neutral pH. What kind of goldfish? Are you trying to mix them with tropical and cichlids or something?

I think they prefer more of a 7.5. This is why many goldfish tanks include some salt (but that is another debate).
