Nitirtes 0
Phos. 0
ph 8.00 can not get this any higher without adding additives
Sal. 1.021 using a deep six meter
Cal. 390 little low useing the salifert test
alk 2.86 useing the salifert test
but I also have a kenya that is doing good
I will try to post a pic later today if that will help

It might very well be that if you slowly raise your salinity level to 1.025, you will get the ph to come up a bit. That is rather low for corals, ok for fish, but corals prefer it a tad saltier. More mix would equal more of the buffering too.

don't do it all at once....raise it slowly or you will have problems.

I agree also that raising your salinity slowly to 1.025 might help.

I would just use SW for your top off water for a while. If you have alot of water evaporating then partial amount SW. Probably no more than a quart a day or two.
