Should be ok as long as it's stable

I agree. As long as it`s stable at that range you should be OK.

Thanks. I was reading some threads n that's feeling I got from them. What about if I want corals? Don't they need a higher ph to be healthy?

What is your PH reading about an hour before the lights go out? That`s the reading I would consider.

I would say a stable 7.8-8.0 should be good for some coral, maybe not every type but for the most part. How high or low your ph is reading is not as important as if its stable or not. Heck a stable ph of 8 is better and safer than an unstable 7.3 .....its the ph swings that kill fish.
