what filter pads? filter pads on saltwater tanks are bad news

i would wait a month atleast to monitor how your tank is doing. a fish store that observes fish for 3 days doesnt mean much. fish may not show signs of disease for a few weeks after, they may not have good eating habbits either. its always good to QT a fish after purchase.

I have the white and blue screening filter to catch all the large pieces of waste - do I not need that?

If you have a minute, I'd like your optinion about the best way to do a water change. I received my RO/DI unit yesterday, but I haven't figured out how to install it. It's been 3 weeks since I established my tank, so I need to perform a water change before it's going to get installed.

I am going to replace 2 buckets of water ~ 10 Gallons (~10%).

What salinity do you recommend for my softies tank ~1.023-1.025?

I just need to add the proper amount of salt, add the water conditioner to remove the chlorine, and adjust the temp so that it's the right temp, correct? Do you let your water set out over night? Anything else I should know before making the next move?

Also, I'm going to be receiving my 100 snails tomorrow and adding more substrate this weekend. Should I postpone the water change or do it now?

Thanks,

Matt
