Reply to "I did what I could"

Hi, Lucas,

They were fighting, and I tried to calm them down. I did what I could to stop the fight, but they wouldn't listen.

Yes, the structure in bold is correct, the meaning being: I had the ability to stop the fight, and I exercised that ability.

Similarly, you can say in the present:

- I do / am doing what I can.
