I've seen people say that it's really sudden changes in kh that fish don't tolerate well.  Have you found that to be true?

When I I got back into the hobby, I definitely ran into problems as you mention. But knowing what I know now, it was osmotic fluctuations/ differences that was at the root of my problems. Either KH, GH or a combination of the two. Keeping those parameters stable is where I focus my attention. The best tools to use are a simple GH/KH test kit and a TDS meter. If I notice a problem, these are the first things I check. I only monitor pH to measure CO2.
