 What  is  the  ways  to  raise  the  PH  of  water
 
 The  Ph  of  my  tank  is  8.0
 
 I  want  it  to  up  a  point  or  2.
 
 I  am  doing  regular  water  changes  but  still.  Sad  
 
 further  tested  the  phosphate  it  is  about  1  ppm  ..
 Should  i  dealy  be  zero..
 how  do  i  get  it  down.
 
 calcium  was  about  480  and  carbonate  was  7  DKG  which  seem  to  be  ok.
 Nitrate  is  nil  (  i  am  so  happy  to  see  this).
 salinity  is  about  1.024  (  not  really  sure  the  glass  float  i  have  has  1.020  then  1.030  this  was  dancing  mid  way)
 
 temperature  is  77.8  degrees  fahranhiet.  I  have  set  the  chiller  to  77  (  25  degrees)  but  somehow  it  stays  between  77  to  78  Fahrenheit.  which  is  also  ok.

 Granular  Ferric  Oxide  is  use  to  suck  the  po4(phosphate)  from  water  reef  octupus  reactor  can  be  used  for  the  best  result.
