Raising my Salinity?

I have a newer 16 Gallon nano thank. Currently I have 2 clown fish in it.

I read that the salinity should be at 1.025.

Currently I am at 1.0225.

What is the best way to raise my salinity safely for the fish or is keeping it at 1.0225 okay?

There are a few options. Raising the salinity of your next water change is one. My preference is adding the salt to the auto top off reservoir so it changes over a few days.
I use this calculator site for most of my salinity adjustments.
