Ahh I see! Haha well basically before you do a water change you take a bucket, fill with ro/di, add salt to water until it has a specific gravity of 1.023-1.025 make sure the water is mixed then add to tank

Before buying anything at all for your first sw setup, I would recommend firstly reading the articles provided above, then try to get as specific a gameplan as you can for this tank. Try to decide if you want coral or not, community (peaceful) fish or aggressive. Etc.... there's simply way too many options for us to tell you what's necessary.
