Next question. How often should I change my water? (10g) I've been checking my salinity everyday. (it's staying at 1.024) Do I need to check salinity everyday? When I do my pH tests, everything comes out great except for hardness. A rep at my lfs told me this is not a huge concern. Is she right? What can I do to correct it either way? And last but not least. What constitutes as a water change? Does this mean change the water in the entire tank? Or just a percentage? Like the thread says, I'm new! I kinda got picked to do this hobby. Wasn't by choice, however I'm loving it!

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
