Hydrometer

I broke my hydrometer last week and finally got another today. Its one of the glass ones that bob in the tank. I put it in fresh water to see if it was accurate and it read 1.000 is this mean it is accurate? How accurate are the glass ones?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
