Looks good to me. Calcium seems a little high, but if I remember right you're using Oceanic? If so, it sounds about right. Water temp around 78-80 and SG around 1.025-1.026?

Oops I forgot about those 2
Water Temperature during the day is 78 and at night 76

SG around 1.024 or 1.025 depending on how much effort I put in to making the salt mix....LOL... But I normally like to keep it around 1.025...
... yeah I am using Oceanic and it right around where it was tested at....

I agree. The only thing I would change is bump the SG up to 1.025-1.026.
