I've used seachem marine buffer since I started and always does the job.

How often do you do water changes? I ask because sufficient wc regime sometimes will do the trick the salt mixes nowadays will have enough

What kind of salt do you use? I don't make my own water yet and my lfs uses reef crystals the ph is always around 8.2 going in.

The marine buffer will raise the ph without going over 8.3. You just have to raise it slowly I would shoot for .05 a day until you get it to your target.
