Chlorine, Fluoride and lime.
Looks like I'm good to go.
Thanks!

Not sure what "good to go" means in context here, so will just say that with chlorine in your source water you do need a water conditioner but it can be the most basic (dechlorinator only).

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

That's what I meant.

Okay, this is very cool.
I bought the Aqueon water changer. It leaks about the faucet, I'm going to try and find a brass replacement for the fitting and use teflon tape.
I did the two fifties in the fish room, put a thermometer in the sink, adjusted the temperature, and after syphoning less than twenty gallons out, put in 1 ml of API water conditioner turned the appropriate valves on.

Again, this is very cool.

Thanks, Byron and all.
