They would all live in 8.2 water wouldn't they?

They should be fine in that pH.
You have to adjust slowly, but I can't tell you how to do that, because I don't know.

I think what I'm going to do is just let it run out, The PH should return slowly. It will take longer for the PH to rise back then what it was when i put the fish into the tank. they went from 7.0 to 8.2 quick. I did do it slowly, but still that took only like an hour. I think this will go up way more slowly then that. And my betta is healthy as a horse, or so he acts.
