Question is water treatment needed?

I've always used Tetra Aqua Safe water conditioner monthly with a water change. As well as a Tetra Easy Balance water treatment weekly with a water change. Is the easy balance needed every week? Or even needed at all?

Don't need it. Do your water changes weekly using de-chlorinator.

I agree. I nwever recommend EasyBalance because it makes claims that disturb me. A product that messes with the natural bacteria in an aquarium [they say it somehow reduces nitrates] can be troublesome, and using this to reduce water changes (another of their claims) is not the way to go. Live plants, weekly partial water changes with a good dechlorinator is all that is necessary for a naturally healthy system.
