When you did your PWC after your trate reading, did you match the salinity? What was your salinity reading at and what is it reading at now? A higher reading MAY yield a higher
PH...

To be honest, I haven't changed it yet, my trates are still sitting between 10-20ppm.. I plan on changing it tomorrow but my salinity right now is 1.025

No clue why your PH would rise?? But.. I WOULD do at least a 10% PWC to bring the trates down. Especially since you added stock, the ammonia they will release will certainly yield trates, and thats a problem you don't want to battle...

I usually test before the PWC and then again the next day.

Okay so I tested my water again after the WC
HR pH 8.0
Ammo .25ppm
Nitrite 0ppm
Nitrate 5-10ppm
Salinity 1.026
I'll have to bring down the salinity but that probably won't b until Monday.

I guess the the pH was just a bad test yesterday (8.4)..
