If the fish were really that expensive why would you just pour water that you were drinking and was likely open into the tank? Can't some types of water mess up the ph? What you friend did was stupid though.

You should be monitoring the amount of water you add and using appropriate levels of conditioner to prevent throwing off the ph balance or adding unnecessary levels of chlorine to your tank. In addition to that if they are fish that need to have their water maintained at a certain temperature dumping in a bunch of new water into their tank every day while they're still in the tank can be very distressing for the fish and even p
