Trivial Question

Hi everyone !

I have recently set-up my 350 litres aquarium. I had high nitrite (and with your help and advice) is now getting very closed to 0. Now I am ready to purchase 6 rainbow fishes, and in three weeks move my four loaches from my other aquarium.I have already purchased a further two clown loaches (they are still living at the pet shop awaiting fot the aquarium to be ready).

Now the help bit: The aquarium that I have is a Juwel 350. I am changing the wool filter once a week. But I am not sure how often should I do a water change ? and how much water should I take out ?

At the moment I have been doing 30 litre changes. Is this enough for this big aquarium ?

I am sorry for such trivial question,
