If you are doing a 5 gallon bucket per water change. 2 cups (of tropic marin) salt will make a salinity of 1.024. If you want to up it to 1.025 (from 1.022). Make the new one around 1.026-027).

I always have my ro/di water in a 5 gallon pocket. I do it most of the time in the nights, i prepare the water and I like to add a water pump and a heather to match the temperature of my other aquarium. And I keep the water on cleans milk gallons. And i have two aquarium one of them is 1.025 salinity and the other is 1.023 and the tank that is 1.023 i will like to change it to the same salinity , because i don't like to do two different densities of saltwater!! And i prefer to do the same water for both aquariums.

So when your salinity is the same for both tanks and let's say you wanted to move fish from one tank to the other can you just do that immediately or is acclimation still a must? Just a curious question

Temperature can affect fish so acclimating is still good.

Well i have to acclimate the fish or corals again because in my both aquariums there is a couple degrees temperature different and that's why i need to acclimate both fish and corals!!
