I have another quick question which I know is a really simple basic thing but I was 99% sure them then I started to second guess myself, if you have a tank (hypothetical with a salinity of say 1.010 and you add water that had a salinity of 1.010 it stays at 1.010 correct?

Yep. You're correct.

General advice on saltwater tanks:

Use RODI water for waterchanges if you plan to keep corals. Topoffs with RODI water.
If you plan to keep corals, buy a powerfull reef lighting system.

Protein skimmer is cool.

Always ask the forum before buying livestock :p

You probably already know about the nitrogen cycle... This is the same in SW.

Salinity must be kept between 1.020 and 1.025. Never add salt directly to the tank. Temp between 25.5C and 27.5C.

Thoses params are optimal but not necessary: Mg: 1400, Ca: 440, Kh: 9.

You will need powerheads for the waterflow. Make sure there's a lot of surface agitation. You need live rocks.

Before buying LR or livestock, learn about diseases and parasites.
