Did you cycle? A buffer is what I use to keep my tank at a steady 8.3

There is no reason to buffer pH. A tank will naturally sit where it needs to sit with a proper amount of flow on the water surface to assist with CO2 exchange. It will fluctuate throughout the day naturally and also if there are windows open in the house. Trying to chase 'the perfect pH' always leads to trouble, especially when the number it 'dropped' to is fine to begin with.
