High Alkalinity?

I tested my tank's KH today and it's somewhere from 210 to 250mg/L(ppm)

Is this bad? How could i fix this problem?

Thanks in the advance

You're KH should be balanced with your CA levels as well. There's a relationship between the two.

here's a detailed article on Alkalinity

and a good article by the same author to help guide you through any adjustments
