High Water Ph
My Ph is higher than I would prefer it (8.2) what's the cheapest and then best way to reduce it safely to about (7.0)? Thanks.

Depends on your hardness levels. It'll take a lot of driftwoods to make a significant difference. What is your reason for fiddling with the pH? If your fish are fine, then don't fiddle with your pH.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
Which fish were they referring to? Most fish can adapt to a higher ph as long as the ph remains stable. Stability is what's important when it comes to ph. My ph is 7.8 even though I keep fish that livequaria says prefers a 6.8 to 7.2.
If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
My experiences with intentionally altering ph have all resulted in dead fish. I gave up on it long ago. If the fish cant live in the ph of my tapwater, I get different fish. Clean water with a stable ph is much more important than the exact ph for the vast majority of fish in the hobby.
