1.019 is not harmful per say, but your corals will be happier at say 1.024 to 1.025, however don't make any changes until you get your levels verified. How much were you adding at one time to try and get the level to come up?

That's quite a bit but in a 75 gal it's not much. AFTER checking your sg meter or getting a refractometer it would be safe to add salt so that the level does not exceed a .001 rise in a 24 hr period, preferablly drip method.

If you make a SG change too quickly then YES it can. You need to bring it up slowly.
