Excess co2 in my air certainly could be a problem. I live in Phoenix and most of our houses are insulated well. It is still too hot to open a window!!! What do you mean adding air to the skimmer? Thank you Kevin for the information about the Sailfert kit. I know that they are supposed to be good kits, but I consistently got low results with it. 8O

Check that thread out, in situations like yours...it is almost always a CO2 problem, I do, however, agree with Jack, 8.0 is not harmfully or drastically low, I know many reefers (using IO salt) that maintain good reef tanks with 8.0 or a little higher as their daytime ph.
