How do you put the water back in and use the dechlorinater things so it won't stress the fish out? because from what I know I would be putting the tap water into the tank and the tap water would still have chlorine and chloramine in there. So how to I fill the tank up?

Your tap water is not going to instantly kill your fish (I hope not - you drink it!) and while I am filling the tank my fish will swim through the current of the new water coming in, so it's not so terrible, but like Pufferpunk says put the dechlor in first and you are good to go.

BTW, this was the very reason I held off on getting a Python myself years ago, because it did not seem right to put tap water straight into the tank. I got over it!
