You'll have to mix it in a seperate container and get the temp and salinity correct before adding it to the tank when there is livestock in it

You can when you first fill the tank if you like, but I would do a bucket at a time personally.

For water changes, that MUST be done in a different container.

Every system is different so you really won't know what's best for your tank until its running but a good place to start is 10-20% weekly and go from there
