Whats the best way to stabilize pH?

Every day---7.9 in the morning and 8.2 at lights out.
I have a canopy right now and I'm building one in the next week or so for my VHO setup that going in. I'm going to vent it well so hopefully that will help out.

Any other tips?

To be clear, I was talking about the glass cover directly over the top of the tank, not the canopy.
