Mine was at 8 yestarday, and I use a thing called balance, it's in a big White bottle, it ups the ph without effecting the kh and the calcium levels, it took 2 doses (240l tank) it's very expensive £30 a bottle but you can treat 2000l with a 0.2 ph increase, just to give you an idea on how far it goes

If it`s 8 and it`s stable at 8 I would not worry about it. Stability is the key here.

agreed. also, pointing a power head towards the surface will help with ph. 8.0 is fine though.

I use a PH buffer I'n my tank. It brings my tank to a PH of 8.3 and won't go higher so no worries about overdosing! It's I'n powder form and just mix with ur water and dump I'n tank once a week to keep it there. Easy as pie! And stability at 8.3 I'n a reef tank is key! 8.0 and your asking for a healthy algae bloom!

Well mine was at 8 the other day as I said 2 doses and its been at 8.2 for 2 days now, I test at night just before I turn the lights off, so it been the same so it does stabilise it, and not at the cost of your kh, good stuff IMO
