Mix your next PWC with a higher salinity, but not too high (1.025-7 depending on how high you want it).
Or you could top-off with SW.

Didnt you post something about losing a shrimp? If so, that could be a contributing factor.

Both of these will work. Just make sure you add top off water(SW) every day. Dont wait a few days and then add all that SW as it will cause too big a jump.

Expose the top and wait two days. Your 1.022 will be 1.024 - keep it there.

What do you use to measure?
