on the refractometer I can see that the 1.025 but it's the next two lines up if that makes any sense lol. how are the lines measured for each line? and do I need to heat up the water before adding It in?

yup....dont have to heat it up since there is no live creatures yet....the reason to heat the water as DT temp is to avoid any living creatures become shock.....normally while do PWC u need to heat the new saltwater temp same like DT temp....btw, i still dont know your tank size....
