After you test your PH level in your tank and find out if it is high or low. You can buy the PH up or down bottles at your fish store. You will add so many drops to your tank, depending on size of your tank and it will help adjust the level.

If the pH is high in a fresh water aquarium then just place crushed coral in mesh bag and place the bag under gravel substrate.About 1kg of coral need per 40litres of water to buffer the water to hold a pH around 7.6.
