Depends on how you define "help". Baking soda will most certainly raise the PH by way of the KH but unless I get more exact with measuring my water changes it will be hard to maintain atba stable number. Considering how i suspect it lowered over time by my own doing i probably could raise it closer to the other tanks by doing weekly water changes. However if possible i want to see if i can avoid that. If my ph isn't havung a swing everytime i do a water change then i'd be happy to keep it where it is.
When fussing with your tanks perameters the slower ways are usually he more stable ones. Like crushed coral, argonite , limestone n such to raise your tanks buffering capasity.
