Typical water conditioners remove or detoxify chlorine, chloramine, heavy metals, and sometimes ammonia. They don't tend to have an impact on PH and water hardness. You could probably get info about GH (gereal hardness), KH (carbon hardness) and PH directly from you water company. I received a very thorough and friendly reply from mine when I emailed them. Try doing this with your company. Tell them that you are in the aquarium hobby and that you need this info to know what your water conditions are coming out of the tap. Ask for general hardness, carbon hardness, and PH of your tap water. If they don't break down the numbers for you, we can figure that out.

Livebearers like guppies and platies can store sperm and continue giving birth after the male has been removed.
