Hey all! Thanks for the congrats! things have been a lil hectic....
so, test results turned out FINE! Ammonia, nitrate and nitrite all 0 ppm and PH was 7.2.... all normal for my tank. No one else has died, except the occasional disappearing of a baby tiger barb (oops guess the Tinfoil was hungry).

at this point im nervous to get any more fish, i was planning on replacing this tank (45 gal) with the 90 gal i have sitting in the garage..... just have to get a few more things (ie filtration, substrate, etc....) please see below thread if you want to help with the 90....

so, for future reference, only a tap water conditioner? ill have to check the PH of my tap water again, what do i do if it is not acceptable for my fish who have been living with it in a neutral state (7.0 ish) for a long time....

I would perform smaller water changes ,no more than 25 percent at any one time. This will allow fish to adapt gradually. Considering that the ph adjusters usually have temporary effect,you could find that your tapwater isn't that far from what is in the tank assuming that weekly water changes have been taking place as they should.
I am in agreement with others,all that is need in the aquarium is a good water conditioner and water.
