I would empty the skimmer cup and clean out the throat about 2-3 times a week depending on how much effluent it is producing.
To keep your salinity stable, just make sure the water level stays the same in the tank. Use either distilled or RO/DI water with no additives in it for top off. Make sure, when you do a water change, that you use aged SW that is the same salinity as your tank is. 1.025 is about right.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
