Yup - that is the usual way, but SOMETIMES......
Since you already have fish, I know you know about water conditioner. IMO/E (and many others here) the best is Prime. It is economical using only 2 drops per gallon and takes care of all kinds of nasty stuff - chlorine, chlorimines, heavy metals, etc.
As far as food goes, pellets seem to be the #1 choice. I am a BIG believer in New Life Spectrum (ALL my fish get it), but there are other good ones out there as well.
