Before you open up the canister, you have to disconnect the hoses from the unit. The water is blocked by a ball valve, so it's ready to be reconnected. No, you don't have to do anytihing with the water.

I prefer to fill the canister manually with a pitcher before putting the top back on and reconnecting the hoses. You don't have to do that - it's going to fill once you open the ball valve. However, it will lower the water level in the process.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta
