Ph levels

Does anyone have any tips for maintaining ph levels in a fish only marine tank? Mine seems to sit at 8 but should be a little higher.

All suggestions greatly appreciated - funny ones doubly so.

If you buy a good filter it should maintain the pH automatically. You could try going to your local pet shop and buying a product (basic if water is acidic, acidic if water is basic) which levels the pH of water.
Remember to change the water every so often.

If it's stable, don't muck with it. When you add products they will cause spikes or drops, which can cause issues with the fish. A stable pH is better than one that fluctuates.
