Explain what happened to the apex, looks like you had a power outage.
Your PH is low but don't chase it yet!

How did you calibrate both PH probes?

Sorry there is only one ph sensor(lab) not sure what's up with the second I guess I need to hide it. I calibrated as per instructional guide with the two solution packets.

Nah, both is good but you have three regents to calibrate PH 4.0, 7.0, 10.0 and which one you used first?

Stopped by ocean life aquariums today for testing supplies. Super awesome people all the time. Going to get a cloud 9 skimmer when they come in next week and they tested my water!

Thanks.
ALK 7.5 can come up a bit not to much set your goal at 8
SG 1.023 just add a 5 gallon water to your tank and test again after 24 hours, when water vapors salt stays behind as you'll raise your SG on a natural way.
PH.8.0 don't chase it yet.
CAL 420 not bad
Po4 0.5 to high shoot for 0.05
No3 0 you want to bring this up to 3 or 4 some have it as high as 10, by raising your No3 you will lower the Po4 automatically.

Test again on Friday but make slow changes.
