What is the hydrometer reading? You definitely should pick up a refractometer....hydrometers I've always found to be worthless. I'm guessing if you added five more gallons of saltwater your SG is going to be way high. Here is a link to a good quality refractometer... http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produ...&Ntx=mode+matchallpartial&Np=1&pc=1&N=0&Nty=1
Did you give the new salt water time to circulate around your tank before you took another measurment with the hydrometer?

Fill the hydrometer with RO/DI water and let it set for 10 or so min. Than try the reading again.
