not sure what refractometer your looking at 35ppt is 1.0264 which is approximately natural sea water depending on the location.

Have you tried vaccuming out that algae? Not that it won't come back if we don't figure out why it's there. How often do you feed as well. I am suspecting that you have hive nitrates

Yup you where right i gave the other side of the reading sorry. I thought about vacuuming it out but was not sure if that would take out some things the fish need in the sand bed. This is some of what has been living in the tank. Sorry guys for being such a rookie and not have this stuff ready for answers but i guess thats how i got to the point im at.
