How many watts are these heaters? You should have a 50W heater for your tank (5W per gallon).

I got a liquid test kit (API) and the results came up as 7.3 pH. Is this bad? The box said 7.0 is ideal for keeping a fish in.

Don't know if it's just a wee typo or not, but livebearers, though usualy adaptable, generally prefer harder alkaline water, not soft acidic water.

It all depends on the specie. Some fish need aciditc pH, some need a neutral pH, some need a hard pH. Some SA cics need soft water/pH, and SW fish and African Cics should have a higher pH. Most FW community fish (bettas included) can adapt to your water's pH level.

ive had superman for about a month and he hasnt pooped yet, i feed him a pea everyonce and a while, just as much as he will eat, the leftover pea if inside the tank is taken out, maybe he just does it when im not looking, maybe hes shy, maybe during his night cycle?? he doesnt look constipated. Just thinking out loud
