are you sure that your testing solution is correct, ph of 12 is like ammonia isnt it?

GREAT looking tank too

Neat 3D look witht the gravel coming downhill like that.
For your PH could it be your substrate causeing the issues?
Since I went bare bottom my ph has been quite stable. Locally water comes out of the tap at 7.0 and very soft. I had some coral in my substrate that was killing my soft water species.
Perhaps a water change since obviously you dont want to swap out your substrate with all that aquascaping.

WOW! But why does the picture look so fake? LOL~
i thinks so... i dont like it either
taking this pic.
i opend all the windows besided, put a black chipboard beside the tank, used a blue filter for the back light.....
but the light above is not enough and the front glass is curved...
and the result is like that...
i think i need to buy a fiash light...to get better picture..

^that would be really neat to see. The surface film drives me nuts as well, if this works I might try it myself :)
