Maybe you right. I dont know the tap water in your area.
In the area where I live, nobody I know, who got more than one tank use any
type of chemical to dechlorinate the tapp water, no need to do it here.

I would use both.

I would be carefull with the pH down stuff because it might give you an
algea boom and remember to lower the pH gently to avoid pH shock
I have also used peat to lower the pH and found it quite efficient.
