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!

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?

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
