PH

Hey guys, my ph ATM is around 7.8 - 8.0. Is this ok for fowlr setup or does it need to be a little higher. If so what is the best method to raise it?

That's fine. The best way to raise it is get more fresh air into the system. Depending on where you live, it's pretty common for pH to be a little lower during the winter when the house is closed up. With the windows and doors closed, you get a higher level of co2 in the air inside the house and that pushes the pH down.
