Agreed. Immediate water changes are going to be your most likely solution at this point. Your PH is off which means alk, cal, and mag are probably off as well. Water changes with a good reef salt will help balance those out.

It was supposed to be here today but not yet. I'll do a water change ASAP and see how I go. I changed about 30% two weeks ago. Should I change more than that to get things happy???

yes most definitely. 30% two weeks ago is very minuscule in your situation. what kind of protein skimmer are you using? what test kit for nitrates? if you only did a water change two weeks ago, you should be showing some level of nitrate. if you tested wrong, that could be part of your problem along with the high Ph. nitrate tests are often done wrong and should be tested multiple times when in doubt.
