Unhappy HELP! ph keeps increasing!!

Hi everyone, I hope someone can help me to find a solution for my pH problem. I'm new on this hobby and since i have added corals on my tank the pH that was on the right levels started to raise and I can't stop it. Any ideas what could cause it? Thanks

First let me say welcome to AA

Tell us a little about your tank
how old is your tank
tank size
was your tank cycled correctly
parameters , are you using RO/DI water or tap
Do you dose anything
is your sub straight sand or crushed coral

after you answer this stuff it will make it a bit easier for us to help you

Ph is an easy subject. As long as there is proper water movement at the water line there will be proper CO2 exchange and you won't see issues with Ph. Using products to raise pH will only lead to larger issues down the line.
