To many Newbies add additives to their tanks and end up with a virtual "pea soup". I would try to remove the top...you have nothing in there that would jump out anyway and see if the ph raises.

you might also try adding a little more surface agitation as well... give it a week and you should see the ph climb...

Seachem's Marine buffer does work good and it safely raises your PH to 8.3 and will not raise it more than 8.3 even if you overdose. Now as others advised you dont need to use buffers if you are doing partial water changes regularly with a good quality salt, salt will buffer your pH always. You need to use buffers only when you have an established tank with an extra number of livestocks and your PH has problems.

My recommendation would be to do it over time with your water changes. Many people, myself included, never use buffers as the water changes are enough to take care of things.

BTW, in my previous days when I just couldn't wait for things to settle "naturually" I have used that product and it worked fine.
