Ok thanks. What's a good level to keep it at?

I keep mine at 1.025 but some people keep theirs as low as 1.022 or as high as 1.026.

So what should I do for the filter? Eventually I wanna do a refugium but that'll have to wait. Right now first chamber has sponges, second chamber has sponge at bottom then heater skimmer and some live rock rubble. Third chamber just had outflow pump. I'm planning to get a little more live rock rubble to put in. Should I also get carbon? I've heard of people doing that with live rock

So new test results all came out at 0. But need to remember I did water changes to get SG down yesterday and day before.

What should I do now?
