Salt can't evaporate, its chemically impossible. It may have left the system through salt creep or some other means but there isn't salt in the air.

That makes sense; there is salt creep on my tanks top, i just got the levels back up to where they are supposed to be; aren't u supposed to reintroduce the salt that builds up back to your tank, that's what I've been doing.

i personally just check the salinity when i do a water change and if it happens to be a little low i just mix the new water a little salty and that usually takes care of any salt i need.
