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?
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.

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