pH, Alkalinity and calcium

If my pH is at 8.0, my alkalinity at 8.4dKh(3.0 mequ/l), and my calcium at 440, should I dose a 2 part system of hardness plus and alkalinity plus to bring everything up a little?

If you ALK/CAL/Mag are in balance (millions of charts about this on Google) you'll be fine.

 

My tank runs 9-10 DKH / 440-460 Cal / 1450-1500 Mag as an example.

 

Word of caution:

 

If all the above are in balance your PH will take care of itself. Last thing ya wanna do is "chase" PH.
