unless you are getting extra sensitive fish,your ph is not that bad.better to have a stable ph that is a little high,then to mess around with chemicals. but to answer your question,peat in the filter,bog/driftwood and blackwater extract will all work to varying degrees.if you can order online, indian almond leaves,white oak leaves,roobios tea and a few other options are out there.

7.6 is a pretty moderate ph. Mine is over 8 and fish adapt very well.
Good luck!

Don't laugh.... do they still use Sodium Biphosphate to lower the pH?

Matthew 22:37-39
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]

pH - UP AND pH - DOWN.
These products supply, in a pure form, the chemicals sodium bicarbonate and sodium biphosphate for raising and lowering the pH. This method is the most widely used biphosphate for raising and lowering the pH.

Wouldn't adding phosphate cause algae problems?

"He situates himself in relation to time. He takes his place in it. He admits that he stands at a certain point on a curve that he acknowledges having to travel to its end. He belongs to time, and by the horror that seizes him, he recognizes his worst enemy. Tomorrow, he was longing for tomorrow, whereas everything in him ought to reject it."

With all the stuff you have done recently I would recommend you basically do nothing and see if in a couple of days it clears up.

If not then kill the lights and stop adding food (and chemicals) until it does clear.


still that's just my .02

maintain Fw and marine system with a strong emphasis on balanced, stabilized system that as much as possible are self substaning.

have maintained FW systems for up to 9 years with descendants from original fish and marine aquariums for up to 8 years.

With no water changes, untreated tap water, inexpensive lighting by first starting the tank with live plants (FW) or macro algae( marine)
