Since its sensitive to change should I add the new water over a few hours / day? I got distilled water from the store. Should I mix that with a bit of the tap water or add as is?

I got a picture of Slim today. he was kind enough to pose for me. :)

I would do a water change of maybe 1/4 of the tank using the distilled water alone, assuming you have sufficient. This will reduce the hardness, that will not be a shock; the pH will lower but not suddenly from this. Test hardness and pH about an hour after, then tomorrow, to see where this is going.
