i recently upgraded to a 55 gallon tank and am doing the periodic 25% water changes. to fill the tank, i have one of those kits that allow you to hook up and fill from an indoor faucet. i have also purchased a declorinator that suggests dosage in 10 gallon increments. the tank is populated by 5 large angelfish.

when filling the tank, do i need to treat the water before i put it in the tank (ie a bucket at a time) or can i put the water treatment in the tank and then fill it directly from the hose?

the people at the pet store mentioned that you cannot overdose the fish on declorinator and that you can add the treatment and then fill the tank directly.

a related question is, if you fill the tank directly, would you add enough treatment for the entire 55 gallons or just for the 25% amount you are putting in the tank?

do so, i
