According to DR.Ron Reef tank should be at 1.026 a Typical Ocean is 1.026-1.027

1.023 may be fine but thats what he suggested and he know his stuff.

Dr. Ron doesn't even keep a reef tank. He said so himself at MACNA this past Sept. No one is saying he doesn't know his stuff, just that it can be done other ways as well.

Well you pointed it out. Just remember that every one on this site has their own opinions based on knowledge and experience. I dont know who Dr Ron is but I know the advice that fluff and other advisors give on this site and I`ll go with it over Dr Ron anyday.

I had read in a few places that 1.023 was the sg of the ocean "on average".
I also keep it at that level due to the requirements listed for my potential livestock.
I'm still not clear on what makes a tank a 'reef tank' per se.
I have live rock and will have inverts and a modest selection of fish, but no corals or anenomes for at least a year... which gives me plenty of time to adjust the sg over a long period of time if they require a higher salinity..

Wikipedia has a good description of what a "reef tank" is and what's involved in creating one.
