Another question is about how I take out water and pour in some more what that has had the pH stuff added into it.. I don't know much about it or why I need to do it.. any ideas? Maybe I made this one up in my mind o.o Thought I should ask though. And thank you for all the great responses. I really appreciate it.

Don't add anything that's in a bottle labeled "pH UP" or the like. Quick fluctuations in pH can cause quick death amongst your fish.

It's actually called water conditioner. I didn't have it next to me when I wrote that.

You need water conditioner so that it removes the chlorine and bromine from your tap water. Failure to use a proper amount of it will cause the chlorine to kill off the good bacteria in your filter - as well as hurt your fish! Dechlorinator/Stress coat is your friend - But follow instructions on the bottle.
