Hi, you need to raise that. However, you CANNOT do it quickly. Also, dont add the salt directly to the tank. Maybe up About 2 gallons of water with the salinity at 22. Then the next day, a bit of water at 23. Keep going a bit per day/ever other day until you are at the desired salinity

+1 on Gboy's post. Just top off with salt water and that will slowly raise the salinity.

On a 10 gallon tank you would most likely only need to take a half gallon out at a time. This MUST BE done slowly over a few days or you can hurt your fish

Depending how much evaporation you have, just replace the evaporation with salt water.
