The Bible also says that the Pharaoh's magicians turned the water into blood. Do we also believe THAT?

Sure. This was all in God's master plan in "hardening" Pharaoh's heart. What better way than to grant the demons in hell the the same miraculous power? It was God's way of stringing Pharaoh along. Worked beautifully.

Of course, after the devil worshipers in Pharaoh's court duplicated another miracle, God slammed the door on them. The powers of hell can't do a thing unless God grants them the power.
