Since this morning, my tank level in my 75 gallon saltwater has been rising, and I don't know the cause. The sump level is also pretty low. Everything was fine yesterday, what could be going wrong?

There were solar workers at my house yesterday, and they had to cut out power for a while. Maybe that's the cause?

What can I do to get the tank running normal again?

Could you maybe get a ruler so you can be 100 percent sure that it is rising? If it is 100 percent, I would do a water change and not add all the water back, see if you can drain where the extra water is coming from, images?

I don't use sumps myself, so just a guess, but if sump is lower and tank level is higher, I would guess there is a blockage in the overflow?

Yeah make sure there isn't something blocking your overflow or your durso pipe or whatever kind of drain pipe you have. That means that water is going into the display faster than it is flowing into the sump. Undiagnosed you could be in trouble for a flood...
