    Thanks to all who replied to my first post on this topic.

    I will get my water retested today at my lfs and buy a second test, but I guess what my real question is that with all my parameters being fine, how do I lower my alkalinity and keep it down?

    Thanks again,
    Russ

    Water changes should do the trick as far as getting it down or depending on your calcium level,you might dose a little.Adding calcium will usually drop alkalinity a bit.
