    I'm currently doing a fish-less cycle in my 55 gal. tank. I measured the PH and it's reading as an 8.2. It's the same in the tap water I'm using from the sink so I know it's not anything in my tank causing it to be high. Is there a way I could bring it down to 7.0 as I know goldfish do best in that condition? Thank you!

    You have an excellent pH in your tank right now, and you have a stable pH, which is even better. Goldfish are happiest in the pH they are accustomed to as long as it is over ~7.0.

    Trying to bring down the PH will make your tank susceptible to PH Crash and/or PH Fluctuations which will kill the fish faster. These days goldfish can adapt to any PH, just make sure t is stable.
