Water change question...?

I know this is a very stupid question but...
How long do I let the water sit before adding my fish? I changed his tank about 30 minutes ago, and I am letting the airstone run.

Thanks :)

Does your water conditioner have a specific amount of time it requires to work? If not I'd add him as soon as the temperature is stable. I never let my tanks sit before throwing the fish back in.

No, it says "Treats tap water for bettas instantly." But how long should I wait for the temp to be the same?

Do you have a thermometer? If not you should really get one... they're sort of a necessity. I've gotten so I can pretty much guess the temperature of the tap water so I can get it within 2+/- degrees of my normal 78* tanks so I don't let the water sit at all. I don't age my water either.

Nope... I'll be leaving in about an hour so will that be long enough for the water to sit? :3

most water conditioners take 30 minutes up to an hour to fully de-chlorinate your water. ;]

You already saw my post on your other thread but I thought I'd just add that info here. =]

I prepare my water in a gallon jug the night before. That was I can do immediate water changes. It works out great.
