Water Testing-how To Fix

So today I tested my water parameters and these are my readings:

pH (oddly high): 8.2

Ammonia: .50 ppm

Nitrite: 0 ppm

Nitrate: between 0 and 5.0 ppm

What is the best way to go about fixing this with my high pH levels?

Personally, I don't worry too much about pH, but a good natural fix for pH would be to release some tannins into the water. Something like driftwood and catappa leaves would help.

When you say oddly high, do you mean it is much higher than the water out of the tap? Or is it just that your tap water has a high ph?
