No, you can't cup each fish in a community tank. You either add the dechlor to your water change bucket or if you're using a Python type vac you just add the dechlor as the water is running into the tank.

Since you have to do 100% changes having a filter really isn't going to help you. It's just taking up space. 1 gallon is the bare minimum and adding a bunch of things is only making the space smaller.

Anyway. I suggest getting 1 gallon container or some kind. I use an old tea jug and marked 1 gallon on the bottle. Fill it up, add conditioner and you're set. Never dump untreated water into a tank with the fish in it. If you have a container then you can make water for your next change and have it prepared and ready for use.

On a side note- water conditioners work instantly so there is no reason to keep water out for any length of time. As long as your conditioner takes care of ammonia, chlorine than you can just go straight from tap. Try to make sure the temp is roughly the same as the tank's temp to help reduce much fluctuation.

Congrats!
+1 Definitely read the link before anything else. Too sterile an environment, i.e. 100% wcs everytime, is not good for your fish either.
