How to raise Ph

Just performed some water tests to find my ph, is very very low at 7.42, any ideas on how I can quickly raise it? Safely would be appreciated.

I would recheck that reading or get a different test kit. Unless you have a ton of decaying matter in your tank, it's almost impossible for a typical saltwater system to have a pH that low. The best way to raise your pH is open a window near the tank to let fresh outside air in and if you have a lid on the tank remove it. You should also have some good surface agitation and you can accomplish that by pointing a powerhead towards the surface.
