No, it's not to high. Actually, 1.023 is pretty standard for fish only tanks.

If you ever have problems with parisites or disease, you might want to drop it down to 1.018 to 1.020. most parisites can't handle the low salanity, but your rock and fish can.

but 1.023 is good and very normal

No parasite would be affected by that specific gravity.

Cheers
