The Seachem stuff is great and works well. But the easiest way to keep the pH 
up is to use CaribSea Aragonite for the sand base.  Mine keeps the tank at pH 
8.3  without any salts.  BTW, my water when left alone in my Amazon Biotype 
(125 gallon) tank drops to about pH 4.7.  Good luck.  I have a colony of 
Lamprolongus ocellatus going (in pH 8.3, not 4.7).  They are very attractive.

Although not nearly as nice as Apistos.
