water o.k. for corals?

We have been trying to get our water parameters in check for soft corals and pssibly some coraline on our glass. After reading and calculating and formulating and finaly dosing and checking. Then dosing and checking again. For a little over a week my water has been as follows.
1.024 specific gravity
8.4 P.H.
0 nitrites
0 amonia
0 nitrates
9.8 dkh alkalinity
430 ppm calcium
80 degrees
Are all of these ideal or should we raise or lower any of them.

every opinion apreciated

All looks well, do you have any Live rock? IMO I like 1.025 but 1.024 is fine with salinity. Also you need some corraline to get it seeded, so if some is already on the rocks that should be fine. If you wanted to accelerate growth you can point a Powerhead at the rock with corraline on it.
