I'm not sure what purifier you use or why you'd have to wait five days?
If it's water purifier for use in fish tanks and is fish safe you should be able to put the fish right back into your tank.

What size is the tank?
How long had it been up and running before you did this?
Did you clean the filter as well? If so what type of filter and what did you do to clean it?

Why do you have to wait 5 days? Tom has asked all the other questions we need answered in order to help you.
