What if I did up the Co2 just to lower the ph to the more common number of 6.8... would that increase algae growth?

How do people...

Question

I see everyone with KH around 5 or less and GH around 10 or less and ph around 6.8... How can I get those numbers?

By adding more plants would that lower the KH? How do you lower the KH?
