    Good morning all,
    Hope one of you lovely knowledgeable people can help me out with hi ph levels.

    It has started going above 8.5 for the last couple of days which normally it has been hovering around 8.4, I have a bunch of soft corals which I am worried about as I am new to the coral hobby (always had fish only) the only thing I have done differently is for the last couple of weeks I have been using nopox to help with a little nitrate/phosphates. I used white vinegar gradually yesterday and managed to get it down too around 8.4, but now it's back up too 8.5. Anything I can do to get it more stable and safe for the fish/corals, I have added a large air pump, reduced heat from 26 too 25, skimmer is running and using gyre for circulation and surface movement.

    Thanks all for any help you can give,

    Chris Ott.
