A #2 filter is closest to what you get with no filter. Any filter less than that will give you more detail in the highlights and darks that aren't as black (in increments as you go further from #2). Filters above #2 will give you less detail in the highlights and darker blacks - also incrementally. You really need to experiment to see how your negs respond to changes in filter.
