ph in new tank

Just did a new setup. the tank is now cycling... no ammonia, no nitrite, but the ph is really high. does that balance out on its own or is there something I need to do to bring it down?

will also be adding liverock soon

A number would be good. Ph is not all that important during the cycling process. I suspect you will see it level out ounce you start doing some water changes.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
