Hey guys! I have one goldfish any 55 gallon tank and he's been looking very sad lately. The ammonia is zero everything else is really good except the pH is high. He has some Fin rot and red sores, and the last water change was only 3 days ago. How can I lower the ph? Thanks!

I don't know what his problem is, but it isn't the pH, which is fine for goldfish.  Lowering the pH is very difficult and can harm fish.

I agree.  My tank pH is 8.2 and has been for 10+ years . . . .
