I like 1,026 myself, but in small tanks it's a good idea to run it at 1.025 only because it doesn't take much evaporation to make your salt levels go higher.. very quickly. If you run it at 1.025 you won't go into very high specific gravity levels as easily. It just gives you a little more room for evaporation before high salinity stress can hurt anything.
Still, if you always top off your tank or use an auto top-off system 1.026 is perfect. Just don't go anywhere during a hot weekend. ^_~
