salinity level

My new 20 gallon tank is finally cycled and I will be doing a pwc this weekend before adding my first live stock. During the cycle period, I have been getting used to keeping on eye on my parameters and making sure the water is at a constant level because this is my first salt water tank. The salinity level has been a constant 1.025. Is this a good salt level or should I bring it down a bit before adding fish...

That's perfect. I keep mine there all the time. You could definitely go a bit lower if it's a fowlr tank though to fend off parasites a bit more. Your decision though!

Looks perfect to me mine stays around 1.026. The ocean is a perfect 1.026 so 1.025 is fine for all marine life. Just remember to top off evaporated water with fresh water not salt since the salt doesn't evaporate.
