take your shower head off and clean it. run hot water thru the pipe while the head is off to flush the crud out of the pipe.. likely when the tank was replaced it stirred up some crud and it's gett'n caught in screen on the back of the shower head. wouldn't be a bad idea to take the aerators off the faucets and clean them as well while you're at it
