The ocean is 1.024 to 1.026, so I think that is good.

1.026 is the salinity of natural sea water. You're fine.

I have always kept my system between 1.025-1.026. Like the others have stated that is close to natural sea water.

If you are at 1.023 and wanted to get to 1.026, how gradual should the change be? I have read that fish adjust downward in salinity easier than upward.
