slowly raise the pH a bit probably. I prefer 8.2ish for SW.

Woo Hoo, PAYDAY! Time to pay the LFS rent (even before I pay mine )

Different parts of the day will produce different PH readings. Check a couple different times. I would also check into lowering your nitrates and PO4.

Agreed, check the pH in the morning and night. Add a little more surface ripple and your pH should go up and stay stable. Check your temp, mine dropped when I ditched the canopy and added my T5 lights.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
