For fish only 1.023 is ok but to do corals you will need to raise your salt level .
1.025
Cal , essential elements , iodine and everything you need is in your salt mix .
That's why we do frequent water changes to replenish these levels .
And to remove nitrates

Ah ok! Yeah, I had only done research for FOWLR. I was planning on doing research on reef tanks after I had my FOWLR going for a while just so I have the general "routine" for saltwater.
