Yea I prepped the Tetra's water early in the AM in buckets with the conditioner and then stuck air stones into the buckets and let it sit that way for uhm ~4hrs give and take and then did their tanks and they were instantly much more active then usually.
Before I had done it: Fill up bucket with conditioner and within a 10mins window add to tank. Then I done the Phyton thing right from tap to tank and adding conditioner in the tank - With both approaches Tetra's seemed a lil "off" not sick or anything but not 110% right neither , know what I mean!? This approach seemed to make them happier.
It just got thinking about that because 2 or 3 Rummies I had lost the night of when I done w/c. Which may well only been a coincidence may not have been I donno but I am always eager to find the best set up for each of my tanks and the best way to handle each one.
Like the Barb's they actually have a blast when I fill the tank with the Phyton - Its like a field trip to the amusement park to them.

Letting your water sit 4 hrs lets it cool off, no? I went straight in to the tank with the python adding Prime a little at a time as it filled. I used the aquarium thermometer to set the tap water temp to exactly the same temp as the tank. No ich, no sick fish, no dead fish, nada.

Yea I do the same in the 55g too and have no issues.

But those fish are sick period (on more then 1 level trust me ) so yea any idea to make them better is good by me. And no I filled it with hot hot water so by the time I got to it was still a lil warm; but I popped in my spare heater for few mins each and that did the trick.

Don't ask me what's going on; I had fish for MANY yrs now and PLENTY tanks around my house with different stocks and I never had a problem even remotely close to what's been happening here and not being able to get my hands on a good stock is aggravating to say the least...
