There is nothing wrong with 8.0 for a ph. Mine stays between 8.0 and 8.1 most of the time. What is the reading an hour before the lights go out?

My level is 7.8 and If I crack the window it will be freezing cold also since the tank is near the window

So I just tested my ph level and it's at 8.0 😃 how can I keep it there? And is it safe for fish if it drops to 7.8?

7.8 wont harm anything, the key is consistency. If its stable at that number then just leave it.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
