In adding fish, just make sure that you do it one at a time. You can also float the bag in your aquarium so that the fish would be acclimated to the tanks temperature. This can also prevent fishes from dying early.
Filters: The fish need the water to be filtered to breathe. Fish produce waste and in the natural environment bacteria take care of the waste. In the tank, this isnt the case. The fish waste will just stay in the tank and make it difficult for the fish to breathe
Under gravel filters: Under gravel filters are placed below the gravel and use pumps or air stones to force water through the gravel, allowing beneficial bacteria to flourish. In my opinion these filters are outdated and should not be used. They are ineffective, and clog up causing more problems down
