mantaining ph and kh freshwater???
 
I want to know how to maintain ph at 7.0 with kh at least 80ppm.
I have added 1/2 cup crush coral into my filter box which turned my ph too 8.0 and kh at 10ppm. If I add more coral it will raise my KH too my ideal level, but then the PH is too high. If I add driftwood together with the coral, can my ph drop down too 7.0 while mantaing 80ppm KH?
my tap water source is very very soft. need advice. thanks
