Is it a bad or good news?

Here are my parameters as of yesterday evening the one w/0 the chart card is the phospate. Is my tank safe? Anyways i change water 15gal of water every day, but i dont touch the sand nor the crushed corals in the subtank.
Do you want to know what i have inside my tank.... I guess you'll kill me for having so much in a 1 month & 1 week tank.

Leave your pH where it is at. Adding chemicals to play with parameters can cause more problems both short and long term than they will solve. A stable pH is better than one that is constantly changing due to inconsistent amounts of buffers.

You are fine listing what you have in your tank, no one will bash you for it. If you stocked too quickly, big deal, we all make mistakes at one point or another. We, as a community, are here to help each other overcome these mistakes as quickly and easily as possible.

So here are my live stocks. 2 urchin, 10 nazzarius snails, 10 turbosnails, 1 hermit, 1 cleaner shrimp, 1 fire shimp, 3 feathr duster, 1 clam. 1 anemone (green), 6 kinds of corals (small cut), 1 clown fish, 2 damsels (neon velvet, bowtie), 1 chromis, 2 tangs, 1 dottyback, 1 blenny, & 1 dartfish. All in small sizes just 1 medium size (tang). Don't worry they live in peace & harmony. I got scientific when it comes to the tang. Installed 1 wave maker good for tank twice as mine & 2 regular. And they love swimming in front of the wave maker.

Def don't wanna try lowering, because it'll cause swings, was just a lil shocked by the number. And that's an impressive stock list is that a blue hippo tang I see in the last pic? If so, I'd plan on eventually getting a bigger tank or possibly returning him, the hippo can get massive and needs a ton of swimming space. I just can't remember off the top of my head your specific size tank
