I'd just let it alone.
Do you dose anything for Alk,PH or Cal?

I would buy in bulk,you get much more for your money verses using pre bottled mixtures.Be careful when adding alk. and calcium, go slow,if it precipitates it can really mess up a power head, I ruined a seio reo doing it too fast.

Ya your alk is a little high. Your not dosing anything? What salt mix are your using. It my be out of balance if your are not dosing any alk or calcium to the tank. Water changes are always the best way to fix ANY water quality problem.
