"IDEAL" alk and pH levels for sps and clam

I have a smallish tank that I am using for my first attempt at keeping sps and a clam.
What should my ideal target ranges be for alkalinity and pH. I have read a variety of things, and am not sure where exactly to go with things.

so far sps are doing well, they are laying down new skeleton slowly, their colors are changing quite a bit in my tank under slightly different lighting and overall conditions.

My clam is a little unhappy, mostly being bothered by a fish that will probably have to go . . .

Thanks,
sd
