Ideally a higher pH would be good. Mine is 8.2. But... Stability is more important IMO
, pH swings will stress fish and corals. You SLOWLY bring the pH up over weeks and that would be safe. I wouldn't attempt to do it all at once. Are you using RO
water? Mixing it prior and using a power head to agitate the surface?
What time did you test? Is there a lid/top on the tank or is it topless?
They do sell buffers to raise pH if needed.
Here's a good read.
