Planted tank, tap water is city water with ph= 7.5, I know to put dechlorinator in the water but what can I do to get the ph down without buffers, and do I need to put any trace elements in the water b4 going in the tank or just do the water change before I do my dosing for the day?

I am new to planted tanks and I don't want to hurt the fish or the plants. It has been running fishless for a month, the fish are going in today, they are beautiful Angels and I don't want to kill them.

I just tested my tap water further, the kh=0, gh=3, and get this the nh3 + nh4= 3.0 mg/l. This is the first tank I have set up since I moved here from NC. I always had well water before, I haven't ever had Ammonia levels like this from the tap. Any suggestions?
