Do you have a power head in this tank? If so (but I can't see it if it's in there) you need to point it towards the surface. This will allow for gas (CO2) exchange and will help with your Ph issues. You need at least 80-160 GPH (asumming it's an 8 gallon tank) flow for your size tank. You also need to get the Alk down but get the PH up first.

Yeah Alk is good @ 10th dKH. That is the equivalent to your 180 ppm.
