Hi Pete - You can increase your alkalinity, which in turn would increase you pH to at leat 8.2/8.3 by using "BAKING SODA" (Sodium Bicarbonate or WASHING SODA (sodium carbonate)) - This is basically the correct level for you. THEN only one can/should use kalkwasser to increase the pH more, IF you choose to do so. BUT - this should be left until you have gained a bit more experience with keeping marines... Because the margin for error then becomes VERY small......
