Is my salinity too high?

Im at 1026-1027 right now and i was considering getting a percula clown who's range is listed as 1020-1025. Should i lower my salinity or am I fine?

Just so you know the salinity from your lfs for fish will be around 1020 which they are more comfortable with. If you have fish only in your tank, it would be wise to set it first close to where there is less stress to them and acclimation will be easy.

Remove a bit water and replace by RODI water progressively. Get it at 1.025 maximum for optimal things.
