Will the treated water impact my pet fish?

The treated water will contain a more consistent (and perhaps slightly higher) concentration of chloramine (chlorine and ammonia) disinfectant residual than the well water, so aquarium owners should use the same dechlorinating techniques but perhaps adjust the dosage to accommodate the more consistent residual.   However, the new water pH (8.0 to 8.2) will be slightly higher than the current water pH (7.4 to 7.6), so pH adjustment may be necessary.
