A little extra is not going to harm them, but that is money you are pouring in the tank. :P So you can always just do an even 3ml's. I just guestimate most of the time. At one point I measure it out with a syringe though.
I like to let the water sit in the bucket for 5 minutes just to be safe that the dechlorinator has dispersed, but it's not necessary.
Thanks so much! This probably why some of my old fish in my old tank had burns and mysterious ailments i feel bad now. I will do 3 ml from now on(i just want to make sure there is enough of it to clear the water of heavy metals and stuff) and i already let it sit for 10 minutes :)

Thanks, your posts were a lot of help :)

I don't think that using some extra dechlorinator would cause any burns to your fish though, its more of a waste. Keep an eye on the levels in your tank to make sure it's not going haywire.

I am going to do a water change right now. I will add only 3 mls, because before i was adding 2 teaspoons, i am afraid the drastic drop in the dechlorinator will harm my betta?

Check with your water company to see if they use just chlorine or chloramide. My use only chlorine. So I let the water sit for few days and only use half the water conditioner to save money. It works for me but not sure work for any one else.
