What is a good PH?

I was just wondering what a good PH is, I have never actually bothered testing and tank has been fine. I would just like to know what an ideal PH would be and what is it for?

8.1-8.4. If you do not test for it, I would suggest you do

lol... did you test for it, or are you estimating? If you tested... that would be on the higher side, but it is still good.

Actually the ocean is about 7.8 to 8.4. So your numbers are fine, you do not need to lower it. 8.3-8.4 is what reef aquarists aim for. 8.1 is considered a bit low in some tanks... HTH
