If you're indicator is blue, then something else in the water is skewing the pH reading.

Congrats on getting things dialed in. If I add another tank it will be with a sump and not a canister. The last one I set up with my own design on the sump division panels is absolutely a joy compared to cleaning canisters when needed.
