I moved... New Water Params

Hello, I recently moved and Have setup my tank: HP CO2, SMS122 PH Controller, 46gal, 2x96w

I currently have the C02 maintaining 6.0 PH and I just tested the KH which is 1.0 giving me 30ppm CO2

I need to bring the PH up to 6.7 maintaining 30ppm Co2... what do i need to do ?

I think adding baking soda to raise your KH, when your KH reaches 5, and adjusting your controller to 6.7ph, then your co2 would be around 30ppm.
