Although it may not be the source of your problems (or indeed a problem at all), I can't find evidence on Google that Wardley's Chlor-Out deals with the ammonia produced from the splitting of the chlorine-ammonia bond in chloramine properly. Many manufacturers claim to deal with chloramine, but actually only split the molecule up and deal with the chlorine part, and do not deal with the ammonia part. In many cases where a region has suddenly switched to using chloramine at a high level, people have reported sudden fish deaths after water changes when using the cheaper dechlorinators. A good dechlorinator like Prime, Amquel or Tetra Aquasafe will protect you from this.
http://www.thetropicaltank.co.uk/rev-cond.htm has a list of water conditioners and what they do.

Not to say that this is your problem, just a warning.
