Look up ro/di water. Top off with that or fresh water, not salt water.

Conditioner is fine for SW, But whats the point? Its not going to take out everything else that a RO/DI unit does. its just a waste of money imo for SW.

Anyway, Dude.. Your tank.

You've got it all wrong, Sorry to be so harsh. But think of the fish. For one, The yellow will start having ich break outs.. No matter how you treat it.. it'll just come back, If it doesnt die.
For two, That eel, Regardless of size is way to big for that tank.
For three, Your tank has no where near enough bacteria to support all them fish.
For four, I doubt your nitrate is 10ppm very highly.

Ohh, I feel so sorry for your fish. How would you like to be stuffed in your bedroom and have to live in it with a few other people? Thats what its like for the fish.

Take the fish back, Even if you dont get anything for them. Thats just horrible.
Sorry for being harsh once again.. But wow. Learn from this and start a bigger tank if you want big things.

idk from what i've seen they all look healthy now and idk understand how its cramped like they all have room to swim around, and from my last check everything is seeming to slowly be going back to normal, the tang has been perfect for the past couple of days ich free and his respriation is back to normal, and my pencil urchin seems fine i meen he has been in the tank the longest out of any of my fish decides the two turbo snail and the anenome that was attached to one, so idk tmrw im thinking about going to my lfs and putting a deposit down on a 175 gallon tank, so i shud take it home in two weeks

They're not healthy. Simple.

The fish's insides will outgrow its outer body. Your stunting there growth.
Even if you dont get a 175g, You need skimmer, Lights, Live Rock.. All sorts of things that will cost you a fortune and i doubt highly you'll have it running in the next month, if you even do get it in 2 weeks.

Just do the fish/eel a favor and take them back.

Study the fish more.. Read this..

Yellow Tang.

Long Nose.
Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Yellow Longnose Butterflyfish

Niger Trigger.
Saltwater Aquarium Fish for Marine Aquariums: Niger Triggerfish

Snowflake.

As said above. Take everything back besides the Blenny and the wrasse. Even that wrasse wont survive long as they feed on parasites that are a requirement in there diet.

Also, What lighting do you have? Unless is MH or T5HO (Set Up Right) then its not growing or healthly. Its slowly dieing.

Ok, Were trying to give options to let you keep the fish but your too ignorant to listen. Your fish will NOT survive in a 30G tank for more than a few more months. You need to research before starting an aquarium. Im not trying to be harsh, but honest. I was 15 when i started my tank, and i researched months before, and didn't have problems. You need to take it slow, bring all the livestock back and cycle the tank properly. You also need to get less and smaller fish. A 30G tank is good for starting, but for most of the fish you appear to want, you need much larger. For the fishes sake, return them.

On another note, Freezing is NOT a humane way to kill animals. Either hammer or CO2.
