how are you doing water changes? your salinity should not change at all, because you are removing the same amount of water as you are adding, and it should be the same salinity and temp. you are mixing the water and salt together before adding it to the tank, correct?

That is correct, but I dropped and spilled my initial batch of water, and the old water was already syphoned out and dumped. It wasn't a tremendous amount I only did like 15 to 20 percent water change.
