lol...sorry about that. I meant that because my tank is now filled with salt water made from tap water, would it be beneficial or wasteful to change 100% once cycling is complete?

Wasteful. Just do the 1/3 - 1/2 change and then keep up with weekly water changes using RODI and top off with RODI (no salt mix)

Tap water is bad but its the long term use thats the main problem as unwanted elements will slowly rise with each water change.If your useing an Ro unit i wouldnt worry. Your tank is cycling , heres a link on whats happening.

What is the Nitrogen Cycling Process?
