I recently purchased some duboisi (pemba) and i was reading up on the way they like to have the tank setup
PH temp and all that good stuff....
They like a PH of 8.6 but my PH straight from the tap is 8.0

My question is how can i raise my PH? I know API makes PH UP but i was reading that, that is a temporary fix.

Would a bag of crushed coral in my filter be a good idea? Or is there any other way i can raise it? without having to do that process every time i do a water change.

Or am i worrying too much?

thanks guys
