Your SG is high. You have 1.027, and you are looking for 1.024-1.026. Do a small water change to get the salinity down.

The salt should be fine. It is a reef blend which will help a lot if you choose to go that route.[/i]

Now it is way too low. You need to get it at 1.024-1.026.

You need to do a very small wate change (I think you did one too big), and replace it with salt water.
