PH Level POLL
 
What stable PH level do you run your aquarium at? Post if its FO, FOWLR or a Reef Tank (sps,lps mixed).

I have been trying to get mine up to 8.0, but whats the point. I have been running stable around 7.75 and any additives I use only boost it for the day. Something is always lowering back down.

Any benefits to a higher PH for corals or fish? Or is stability key? Sound off below!

Can't really say. With proper aeration your PH will stabilize iteself. I've never had an issue with mine. But your still within parameters. PH is a big swing for SW, it ranges from 7.6-8.4

i don't think mine has ever varied from 8.2.
