Putting in Amquel when using Python

I used to use 5 gal buckets and put in the chlorine remover when filling each bucket then mixing and pouring into tank. now when I use the Python from the kitchen faucet when and how should I put in the Amquel, during filling, before filling,or after filling tank? Thanks for your help.

I would add it as you are filling the tank to help disperse it throughout the tank.

I just put everything directly into the tank just before I start running the water back in. Never had any problems doing it that way...

I do the same, I just add directly to the tank when filling. I dose for the entire tank volume also, for example I have a 55 gal tank, even if I do a 10% water change I dose for 55 gallons when I re-fill the tank.

This is what I do.

It might hurt if the dechlorinator includes that "protective slime coat" junk... just a note for those who don't know.

excessive quantities of Prime will make for foam if you happen to need to add an airstone for any reason. I'd imagine many others will too.

I usually add it as I'm filling the tank.

I dose on the entire tank volume because Prime is cheap.. My fish are not. My local water has chloramines in it and I would much rather be safe than sorry when it comes to this issue. I have killed an entire tank in the past due to underestimating the amount of de-chlor to use and will ALWAYS err on the safer side of this from now on..
